Tracing the Journey
watercolor, india ink/paper
30 x 44

The last day of 2013!   2013 has been a plentiful year in my art world.  I have had many wonderful opportunities to show my work around New England and across the country.  Sales have been very good not just through the galleries but also at other (surprising) venues.  I have been invited to teach at a new art organization along with continuing with private lessons.  And the writng continues for The Palette Magazine, where I really enjoy interviewing and writing about working artists for the magazine.  My role as marketing director for Rocky Neck Gallery was also a rewarding experience promoting the gallery and the many talented artists.

I have so many things to be grateful for as this year draws to a close and I am looking forward to a new year of new experiences, and creating new work.  Also I am very excited to have the opportunity to co-curate the inaugural show for Mother Brook Arts and Community Center in Dedham, MA, working with Jeanne Williamson.  The show is titled Flirt featuring the flirtatious work of 14 talented artists.  It opens February 1, 2014. This is a wonderful event to start the new year and be part of a new and vital artists' community.

(Stay tuned as lots more news on Flirt to come.)

My painting, Shimmer, sold this year at the SMFA art sale that just took place November 21-24th.  This is from my slip series work on paper done in 2011.  One never knows what sells at the show until pick up day - yesterday for me.  So it it always a surprise. And this is a wonderful surprise.  I am very happy to know this is going to a new home.  I wish to extend a special thank you to the new owner!
