2012 > More 2012

After a full summer season of bicycle racing I dove into studio work with a will and a purpose. Many of the images in this series were inspired by my husband's work in a remote coastal Alaskan village.

I've returned to the them of ghost towns and abandoned places several times. It's a subject that holds a lifelong fascination for me, artistically.

In an effort to use some precious art supplies I'd been 'saving,' I took a leap and worked on stretched canvas for the first time in twenty years.
