Solo Exhibition at Shulman Gallery

Working with Robert Husty, the Shulman gallery coordinating has been such a rewarding experience. To see how the works I've done over the years relate to one another and all in one space is a rare occurrence! I am so looking forward to tomorrow evening's opening. Hope to see you there!

Saturday Farmer's Market Bouquet

Farmer's Market Inspiration. On Saturday's it is my extreme pleasure to go to the farmer's market at the Dallas High School parking lot. Driving up to the area where I spent many years is kinda surreal. I pass the hockey and track fields and see the very updated campus. I see people I went to school with and people from the community with bags full of beautiful local fruits and vegetables. I love the selection at Amy's 'booth'. She has her mom, significant other and daughter as well as helping her... (and us)! A couple Saturdays I selected the bouquet that she arranged and came right home and painted it. It brings a smile to my face when I look at it, hope it brings one to yours too! : )

Underwater scene for Wyoming Valley Children's Association Sensory Room

The Wyoming Valley Children's Association asked me to do an underwater themed mural for their sensory room which is under renovation. A sensory room is a therapeutic space with a variety of equipment that provides students with special needs with personalized sensory input. This helps the children calm and focus so they can be better prepared for learning and interacting with others. I always love being in this school painting murals. The organization headed by Nina Zanon has such a great feel - the teachers are so dedicated to these youngsters - it oozes love.

The Soul of a Home

Every once and awhile I am asked to do a house portrait.  The home can mark new beginnings, see a baby grow to an adult, be a symbol of one's creativity

Every once and awhile I am asked to do a house portrait.  The home can mark new beginnings, see a baby grow to an adult, be a symbol of one's creativity, be the landing spot for family members who have left the nest, and most of all a place where rituals can be nurtured.  I believe the walls of a home become imbued with the energy of its residents and they remember.....

New Hangings in the Marquis Window!

The latest painting I've done is in the window of Marquis. It is visible as a drive by or a walk by and if you so desire, go inside and see the same sized painting facing the interior of the gallery.
