I am self-taught and consider my style that of the outsider artist.pet portraits, which come with a psychic reading about the pet, abstract pieces where animals or ghostly images appear. primitive art, which evoke imagation, are my true expression.

I currently work in three different painting styles. Endlessly intrigued with nature, the focus of much of my paintings has been local birds and vegetation. My work is influenced by classes taken with several Chinese artists. The use of the bamboo brush and minimal brush strokes lends itself to the freshness of the subject. I continue to explore the fluidity of watercolor and strive to capture the energy of nature’s ever changing imagery.I also enjoy doing musician gesture drawings. These are done while listening to live performances so that the music influences the lines. I do many sketches in order to accomplish my goal of expressing the most with the least amount of line.Recently I’m returning to abstracts. Using acrylic paint as a medium, I spend a lot of attention mixing the colors while referring to color combinations in nature. Then with careful manipulation, sometimes only using my hands, I allow the paint to pool and flow creating the natural abstractions. Frequently I find some of the most exciting areas to be rather small, so photograph and enlarge the area creating new compositions.Though these three styles appear very different, they are similar in that I am trying to capture the energy of the moment.Commissions are welcomed.

See The Latest From Moe’s Ache Studio Online! Although our studio is named Moe’s Ache (say it quickly), there is no actual person named Moe involved with the mosaic sculpture and installations created here. We felt it necessary to christen the studio with a name that evokes the same humor that encompasses our work. We often start by reclaiming everyday objects, many destined for the landfill, reinventing them using both traditional and innovative mosaic techniques.Adding a touch of humor and a bit of whimsey, we strive to create public and commercial artwork that evokes a smile while reminding us of our role as resourceful stewards of our planet. If our trash is to come back and haunt us, it should be in a form we can enjoy!We’d love to create a custom piece just for you! Where can you see Moe’s Ache pieces?

I am a “people person” and love Nature. I love to share my love of the Divine Creative. My art takes me in a variety of directions. I love paper, printmaking, and painting. But, I also enjoy the camera and have studied photography. Therefore, I find that I create in a number of veins. I create in collage, watercolor and incorporate many printmaking techniques. I live in rural Indiana and love the landscape. Many of my paintings are a reflection of places and times of the year. Much of my work is watercolor. I am a Signature member of the Bloomington Watercolor Society and the Watercolor Society of Indiana.I am a retired Art teacher, and I have found myself still wanting to guide others~ now I am placing my focus on women and helping them midwife their own discovery of the “face of their Guide” through a process called “The Art of Allowing”. I am working with women one-on-one. If this intrigues you, please contact me.Some bodies of my work I call inner landscapes. In these pieces, I work abstractly with handmade papers from my own studio and from around the world, creating collages with printing techniques and found objects. I have been working with Mandalas for decades, and I am available to work with you to create a “personal mandala”. Many of my pieces are available as giclee prints in a variety of sizes.

I think my paintings could be called “haunted realism.” I intend the spirits of the land and the plants to be felt in the experience of the paintings. This speaks from an older, more “primitive” view of the world, where everything is known to be alive and possessing spirit and consciousness. I think as young children, we all experience the world in this way.I want my paintings to be an antidote to a culture where nothing is sacred. I hope my paintings help the viewer connect to the beautiful, abundant life spirit around and within us.
