VaeArts "Spring into Color show is almost here!

ValeArts is a group of accomplished artists in Oakton, VA who show their work at the historic Old Vale Schoolhouse twice a year. For each show, they invite one or two guest artists to join them. I'm honored to have been selected, along with the amazing Kathleen Best Gilman to join them as guest artists for their spring show, "Spring into Color." This April 27th-29th, the schoolhouse will be filled with over 150 works of art, in many styles and subjects. There will be original paintings, prints, and notecards available to see and purchase. For more information about the show and member artists of ValeArts, click the link below. I will be working at the show on April 27th from 9-2 and again for the reception at 6:30-9:30. You can also find me there on April 28th from 2-6:30 and April 28th from 9:30-2. I hope to see you there!

Hi There!

"Nobody sees a flower really; it is so small. We haven't time, and to see takes time - like to have a friend takes time." Georgia O'Keeffe

Its so nice to meet you! I am an expressionistic acrylic painter who loves big bold color, lots of flowers, and painting outside. So, get yourself a cup of tea, pull up a comfy chair, and spend some time in my colorful world.

The Landscape Notecards are here!

You asked for them, and now they are here - the landscape cards! I'm so excited to add these new cards to my notecard shop. Peaceful cloud strewn skies, or gardens bursting with flowers - there's something for everyone.

Who doesn't love to get a handwritten note in the mail? These days, the only thing in my mailbox is bills and ads, so I'm trying to change that for my friends. Lately, instead of pulling out my book or phone while waiting for appointments, I've been bringing a few notecards and writing to friends while I wait. You can do that too, or, why not write your own birthday message, instead of spending time in the store desperately looking for a card that isn't too sappy, or a mean "you are so old" joke? 

Each notecard set comes with two each of four floral designs with envelopes, and at only $20 a set, they are a bargain. They make great teacher's gifts too! 

Summer Camps!

I'm so excited to announce that I will be teaching camps at the Clay and Metal Loft in Leesburg this summer! Join us for some drawing and painting fun! Morning sessions will focus on kids aged 7-10 and afternoons are geared towards ages 11-14. Enjoy some messy, creative fun this summer!
