I'm known for My Three Children's Books for VIKING/PENGUIN, NY - My Limited Edition Serigraph Prints - and My Acrylic Paintings.

The Hand-Pulled Serigraphs, I produced and developed with my Husband, Robert Rae, who is a Perfectionist when it comes to ART. He Hand-cut all of the stencils for the Prints.
(Which included an exquisite Lace Pattern, as well as some of the most Intricate Details on some of my Designs.)
He has attained a distinct quality in the Silk-Screening Process, and He demands the Best Quality Hand-Made Papers.

These Prints are valued as Collectable because Silk-Screening is done mostly by machine now, rather than by Hand.

I also create, in partnership with Robert, Two and Three-Dimensional Art - as He is a Sculptor and Craftsman.
Some of our past Major Corporate Commissions for Companies such as NORDSTROM, utilized our combined technical skills of Woodworking, Carving, Stitchery, and Painting.

Some resulted in designing and learning about Mold-making and Casting (ie: Giant Shells for Paradise Island Resort in the Bahamas and the Parrots for CHICO'S (Women's Clothier).

Robert HandCarves the Original ArtPeice in Wood, or Sculpts it in Designer's Clay and HandCasts a Limited Edition in a Mixed Medium. Then I embark upon the Joyful Process of HandPainting and Embellishing the Piece - whether a Parrot, Mermaid, SeaHorse, or a Mannequin Doll.

These Embellishments may include Acrylic Paints, Shells, Fabric, Threads, Yarns Buttons, Ribbons, Feathers, Beads, and Many kinds of Paper, Leather, or Metal. -- MMR
