Welcoming in 2018Read More
I'm excited to announce I'll be moving into Studio #21 at Hardy & Nance Studios on November 1st.
My Artist-In-Residence program ends on October 31st, so I'll be moving "down the hall" from #6 to #21. The A.I.R program has brought me so much in 3 months. Meeting so many people on open studio nights, getting more involved with the artist community within H&N, etc.
This is a dream come true for me. I've been wanting a studio for over a year, but budget concerns and the wait list have held me back. The A.I.R. program helped me get my foot in the door to experience studio life and how H&N works. Then, literally, the chance to move into #21 fell into my lap.
I'll be sharing Studio #21 with the amazing Rachel Goodman. She creates fantastic jewelry. Check out her work here: Facebook Page
Studio 21 is located right off the gallery, in the main hall. My first open studio there will be during Art Crawl on November 18th. Follow my event page to see when I'll have open studio nights. You can also arrange to see my work by appointment - email me.

The Red series and Cloud series each gained a new piece recently.
Geyser (Red series #9) will premiere at the Hardy & Nance "Nightmares" show in October. You can order small matted prints of it now (and one is at my studio) from my store. This one was fun to create and came together quickly, once I found the right fractal to use.
Water Meets Sky (Cloud series #10) is my first in the series to use a panoramic perspective. I'll probably use that aspect for some more in the series. Love the result and mixing in of water. It was inspired by a day at the beach over the July 4th weekend. Prints are available.
New studio! Artist-In-Residence at Hardy & Nance.Read More
The latest in my Cloud series was inspired by the days of the month when the moon rises very late (or sets so early) that the sky is dark enough to reveal more stars than one normally sees. I love these kinds of nights, especially when there are thin, high clouds passing through...clouds so thin I think of them as ghosts.
You can purchase a copy at my online store.
Check out a time lapse of some of the work I did on this piece here.
White Linen Night is next Saturday!Read More
I'll be at Hardy & Nance Studios this Saturday night, July 15th, for the Freedom of Expression show. It runs from 5pm-9pm. The first printing of Rainbow Pride is in. Come out and see all the ways artists contemplated the theme.
Happy 4th of July!Read More
I love those days of the month when the Moon rises early, and lights up the day sky. This new pieces aims to capture the excitement I feel when I catch sight of a "day" moon among the clouds.
I run nearly every Saturday and Sunday. Usually in the morning, if I'm not being too lazy. One recent Sunday on an early run, I saw a cardinal land on a low hanging branch on a nearby tree as I ran along the trail. He stayed on the branch until I was quite close, before taking off and flying over my head.
"Cardinal in Summer" is my expression of that experience. It was uplifting; the kind of moment that makes early morning runs worth it.
This one was a lot of fun to work with in Photoshop. The render in Vue took weeks!.
If you're like me, watching the line of clouds from an approaching front fills you with some combination of excitement and trepidation. The energy from a front never ceases to wow me.
Approaching Front captures the dark, dangerous energy of a storm enveloping the sun and calmness before it.
Check out two of my newest abstracts. Two of Hearts was created in May, specifically for the #NoHate Art Show coming up on June 17th (see Events page). Very quick to create. I had fun with this idea.
My other new work, Rainbow Pride, came about for another show (details to come if I'm accepted). This piece celebrates June as Pride Month and also the freedom of expression many feel they now have. I went through a lot of fractals until I found one that worked well with the Rainbow Pride flag colors.
See both works in the Fractals gallery.
I can't show you the full piece yet, so, instead, here's a little peek at a new work submitted for an upcoming art show. I'll reveal the final piece once I'm accepted (or rejected!).
