The Educator's Easel: A Journey in Art and Allegory with A'atte Prints

Welcome to the whimsical world of A'atte Prints, where each piece tells a story close to my heart. I'm not just a retired art teacher and middle school principal; I'm a lifelong artist who has been weaving tales through my art since I was 12. My journey began with gallery shows in the vibrant Pacific Northwest in the early '90s, and it's been an adventure of color and creativity ever since.

Now, I'm thrilled to share with you reproductions of a lifetime of painting and mixed media artworks. Each piece in A'atte Prints is a fragment of my journey, a blend of my experiences both as an educator and an artist. My work is deeply allegorical, with watercolor as my primary medium, bringing to life philosophical, religious, educational, and psychological themes.

My art is a playful dance of contemporary symbols and non-threatening characters, inviting you to step into a world where every stroke and shade holds meaning. It's not just about the aesthetics; it's about the story behind it. I craft each piece with the hope that it draws you in with its softness and simplicity, then keeps you there, unraveling the deeper narratives hidden within.

And, of course, there's a touch of personal charm - my beloved dogs often make appearances, adding a warm, joyful essence to my creations.

At A'atte Prints, we believe art is not just seen but experienced. So, join us in this artistic exploration, where every print is a conversation and every color a character in the beautiful story of life.
