I continued to be asked to design masks and puppets for theaters and drama schools. I started showing them at art galleries and craft shows. I opened my website Ravenwood masks in 2004. Mask design is now a significant part of my life and has been a fulfilling and rewarding career.

My masks are in theaters, amusement parks and art collections in the USA, Holland, France, England, Canada, South Korea, Japan, Norway, Ireland, Russia, Denmark, Sweden, New Zealand, Portugal, Germany, Singapore, Belgium, Brazil, Italy, Mexico, Switzerland, Australia, Spain, Malaysia, and Austria.
Awards:

"In addition to conveying a vivid impression of each character in this stylized show, these masks were lovely works of art. They reminded us of the rich tradition of European mask-making and the important role of masks in the history of theater.”
