Jumping on Board with Gallery No. 9!

For the last two summers, I have put illustration and books on hold and have been doing some traditional painting. I've been focusing on things that interest me, mostly natural elements like birds' nests and ocean stuff!

I'm very excited to announce that I am now part of the Gallery No. 9 Artist Collective who will be representing me and selling my art work in our local area. You can purchase my original paintings through Gallery No. 9! I am also willing to take limited commissions.

Check out the Gallery No. 9 Facebook page and stay posted for opportunities to purchase my work as well as the other artists' work. It is a diverse group and there is so much to choose from for affordable prices.

Check out my updated portfolios on my web page, too! A few of the works there have been purchased already, but some are still available. You can contact Gallery No. 9 through Facebook page Messenger to ask about availability and prices.

A few of my recent works: local seascapes and a trompe l'oeil.
Right now, I'm painting a seashore-themed series and enjoying the summer. In a few weeks I will be back to teaching, so wishing you all a very long, beautiful, and relaxing remainder of summer!!

Amoré on April 2!

So, some of you may be surprised that in addition to teaching art, painting, writing, and illustrating books, I also love to sing, and have been studying opera for quite a few years now. It is one of my passions, and this weekend I am proud to be part of a unique concert production in Southeast MA!

Sunday, April 2, 2017 at 3 p.m., I will be performing in the chorus of Seaglass Theater Company's "Amoré" at Grace Episcopal Church in New Bedford, MA. Artistic director Patrice Tiedemann has put an amazing program together of opera's "greatest hits", and the principal singers on this program are truly inspiring! The entire cast has been been a pleasure to work with, and even if you don't know anything about opera, I guarantee you will enjoy this program!

Tickets and more info are available on the Seaglass web page:

Okay, I can't stop doing art stuff, so I also designed the promo materials, including the facebook banner, postcard, and poster. Very pleased with how these turned out:

Hope to see you at this concert, and make sure you follow Seaglass Theater Company on Facebook and Twitter for more events in the future!
