The question most people ask is “Why did you ever pick such a ridiculous theme?” Some people even shake their heads when they think about the mundane iron covers we all walk over.
Well it all began when I was a Mom going back to college to study art. I experimented in every style and medium possible.
Master Printer, Dan Welden advised me to settle on one style or medium. The distinguished professor of Art Histor, Lawrence Alloway looked at my little album of art creations and said, “You have a penchant for circles!” The spray painting work (right) is called “Spirals.”
Eureka! I discovered two pages containing manhole cover photographs! Wow! “What a perfect theme!” That was 1979 and I am still doing “Grate Works!”
