Emails are great but when I get a card, I know that someone cared enough about me to find a pen (not easy), scratch out a message, lick a stamp, and mail it. Sometimes that's more important than what they said inside.

Now showing: Festival of the Arts Online Show. My piece, Reeds Walk, is included in the curated exhibit. Sadly ArtPrize 2020 is canceled due to COVID-19. Additional paintings and notecards are available at our store and All Art Works online gallery. Please subscribe for info on art shows, exhibits, readings, performances and more.
When I live with a painting, I form a relationship with the artist and the piece. I choose pieces that move me, inspire me, surprise me, or, I just can't leave behind. I have lots of paintings by other artists that do that for me on my walls. I hope my pieces do that for you. If not, I hope you keep searching. The artist is out there for you.

Last Apartment, an installation exhibited at ArtPrize 2018 illuminates my conflicting feelings over my mother's move from independence in her last apartment to an early dementia facility. I admired her indomitable spirit, endless energy and sometimes reckless pursuit of her dreams but mourned her increasing confinement by limitations, both real and imagined.
I'd love to share with you what I've learned. Ask me about half-day and full-day workshops and individual lessons.
