News for March - April:

What a wonderful year it is. There has been a remarkable interest in my works across the country and I am very grateful. I am currently working on a large oil commission as well as new works in oils and pastels. Recently I've been doing workshops and they have been a tremendous amount of fun. We all benefit... those that attend and me as well. It a very experimental space where we are all trying to push ourselves into new modes and patterns. I am honored to have been included in a number of public and private collections recently and there are more projects yet unannounced. It is all very encouraging and it pulls me back to the studio to make more! Thank you all for your interest in my works.
