Artist Reception

I had a great time at Sonoma Cellar with all who showed up for the lovely reception, and there is still time to go see the art through November 20th.  So if you’re out and about in Old Town Alexandria, definitely go check out the establishment and the art.  Most of the art is upContinue reading “Artist Reception”

Happy New Year- It’s February.

It’s been a busy start to the new year, and I’ve been unable to update as often as I like. But that just means I’ve been working hard, right?  I am really excited about 2o17 and the art opportunities it could bring.  I’ve been working hard in the studio, but I’ve also taken on aContinue reading “Happy New Year- It’s February.”

Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m going to take a little break from the studio this week.  I’m going off to spend some time eating some good homemade food and enjoying company with friends and family.  There is a lot have gratitude for this year, even though it’s been a roller coaster of a year.    I hope everyone out thereContinue reading “Happy Thanksgiving!”

New waves in the studio

As you know I’ve been working on a lot of new things this fall.  It all began with “the wall” but I also ended up experimenting with some new themes in my work.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a fan of maps.  But – I inherited about 40 years worth of magazines that haveContinue reading “New waves in the studio”

An over due update

The wall has been going through some changes these last few weeks.  There’s been some problem solving, much needed breaks, and some breakthroughs.  I’m really having fun with this project and the idea has taken on a different kind of significance and study.  I feel like it’s moving forward. So with the much needed breaksContinue reading “An over due update”

Great News

So excited that my art made it into another water show.  This will be my second water – themed exhibit and I couldn’t be more happier.  We all have a connection to water and it’s important that galleries and curators choose themes such as this to highlight important issues.  People always come into my studioContinue reading “Great News”

The wall and chitta vritti

It’s been one of those weeks where I have been completely distracted in general.  I can’t seem to focus on one thing at a time.  I start doing something, and then my mind leads me elsewhere.  I guess that is one of the reasons I’ve been back at making script patterns again.  It’s like meditation. Continue reading “The wall and chitta vritti”

The wall

This week I decided I wanted to tackle something large.   Not just4x6 feet large, like a whole wall large.  I somehow ended up with this canvas that has been sitting in my basement for years and decided to finally do something with it.  I unrolled it, put grommets in the top so I could someContinue reading “The wall”

New work on view tomorrow!

Come see new work at the Workhouse Arts Center.  I’m really proud of this body of work.  18 new pieces on wood.  18 rivers of the world represented.  When I started creating these works my goal was to experiment with the textures of the wood.  How would the washes lay on top of the grain? Continue reading “New work on view tomorrow!”
