I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend! Fall shows are just around the corner.

I'll be at the Monte Sano Arts Festival September 17th & 18th. Yes, it is TWO days this year, so mark your calendars. More information is available on their website.

I will also be at River Clay Fine Arts Festival on September 24th and 25th. You can get all the information here.

And I will have my first solo exhibit at The Church Street Wine Shoppe in October. The opening reception will be Thursday, October 13th at 6:00. A portion of all sales that night will benefit Friends of Rescue. Four of our cats are rescues from FOR, so if you are looking to add a new pet to your family, I highly recommend them.

Fall Concerts on the Dock at Lowe have begun, so come on out Friday evenings. Concerts are from 6 - 9. The concert is free though Lowe Mill does ask for a parking donation.

And I am now taking portrait commissions for the Holidays. December will be here before we know it!

Painting Parties for Kids
We always draw our subject together, and I help kids as much (or as little) as they want. Basic painting techniques are demonstrated. Kids are given a full range of colors to work with. We paint on 11” x14” canvases which can easily be hung on the wall. These classes are meant to encourage creativity and confidence.

Penny Charms

One of my favorite things to make are Penny Charms. Each of these are hand painted on a penny round, the little tiles you put in your bathroom or kitchen. I use special paint and pigmented pens, bake them in the oven, and then coat them 3 times with polyurethane. If you are looking for something custom, I can paint something special for you too. I now have a few styles available on my etsy store and will be adding them to my website as well. And you can always drop by the studio or the upcoming art shows. A charm is only $10 and includes a ribbon or leather cord. 

Is that fabric?


Yes - I've started designing fabric for Spoonflower. I only have 4 designs for sale so far, but if you like to sew, please keep me in mind for you next project. I can create custom fabric for you.

New Art for Fall Shows!


I've been working really hard on some small pieces for the upcoming shows. These are the smallest at 4"x4" and will be mounted on cradled board and sealed. 

I hope to see you at Monte Sano or River Clay!
