November News:

I'm honored to have artworks exhibiting with my fellow Expand Artists at the Denver International Airport. 

It is the ‘Here to There’ Art Exhibition continuing through Feb. 23, 2015. The majority of the artwork is in the Terminal Art Gallery on level 5 of the main terminal, Our other installations will be on display near the north and south security checkpoints. You do not have to go through security to see the exhibits.

The EXPAND group is comprised of five artists from the Denver metro area: Victoria EubanksJanice McDonaldCarol Ann WaughMary Williams and myself. We first collaborated in 2012 and have continued to work together on group exhibitions around the state of Colorado. “Here to There” is curated in collaboration by the DIA Art and Culture Program.

My next exhibition is a retrospective at the PACE Center in Parker, CO (Denver metro) early next year. There will be an opening reception Friday, January 16 from 6-8 pm. The exhibit will include my works in all mediums: oil, pastel, collage, etchings, monotypes and giclee prints. The show continues through Saturday, March 7, 2015

I just completed two Making it Fine Art Workshops in Nebraska and Massachusetts. They were big successes, fun and yielding a lot of breakthroughs.

Private Lessons
I have really enjoyed giving private lessons over the years. It is casual, focused and fun.

There will be a big result in your approach to making fine art and clarity on your career strategies. Give me a call and we'll discuss what works best for you. Lodging and transportation can be provided.

What they are Saying:
