Illumination

" Illumination " Was placed in the catalog for Winter and again for Spring because is is selling well as a limited edition.  The art director feels the response is excellent and the clients are responding to the Oriental feel and glowing light that the piece emits. I am really pleased about this, as I created it and dedicated piece to my Japanese teachers who taught me Ikebana, Tea Ceremony and spent many hours discussing Japanese art. It is one of my first pieces that I used the texture technique that defines my style.

Invited to Artful Home and Illumination is in Winter Catalog.

I wanted to tell you some exciting news.Recently I met a lady named Carole Guthrie who is a wonderful abstract oil painter who was down in Fl on Holiday.I was at a friends house and we were chatting and comparing work on our iphones.When she returned to Massachusetts she secretly introduced my work to an online gallery called Artful Home. I had never heard of this Gallery, but found it is full of beautiful American Art.
Painting,photography, jewelry, handmade clothes, art glass,furniture and more.My work was reviewed by the art curators and the final Juror was Michael Monroe, who was the curator for the Smithsonian Renwick Gallery for twenty years.This was such an honor to be accepted with all the terrific Artists in the collection,  but last month even a bigger honor occurred ! Out of so many prints my "Illumination"  was chosen to be in the winter catalog.
I am still pinching myself as I ship prints all over the USA. My Egret got a warm welcome. My new montage, collage artform has been accepted !! YES!While the catalog is still live online I would love for you to see it.
If you want sign up and get the magazine quarterly they don't spam you or sell address. If you enter via my link I also get brownie points, so save the email if you plan to revisit. I would love to be in the catalog again.
The big winter sale starts end of month. But don't forget if you want to purchase my prints directly from me thats great too, just email or call

Birds are Returning to Florida !

Last weekend we went to Ding Darling Preserve on the West Coast of Fl near Sanibel. I got lucky enough to find some close enough to get some good shots. They are both beautiful and a bit funny depending on the moment.

Everything always happens at the same time during the Holidays doesn't it. The National Association Woman's Artist has it's exhibit at the Armory Arts in West Palm Beach. I missed the call during the summer,so no work in this one, but it is a wonderful exhibit.

Winsor Roc Portrait

Keeping me very busy this past spring was a magnificent horse named Winsor. I  followed him to events out at Wellington and did some commissioned  portraits. One I am still working on one. He is owned by a lovely lady named Barbara Nitsch and is being trained at Olympic level by Chris VonMartels a Canadian Olympic rider. What a treat to see him go through his paces. A new test for me to do sports action photography. I really could have benefited from a longer lens, but I did my best. He traveled to Europe to compete and will be back in Fl again this winter .

Life has it's up and downs.

Hi All
This year has been a bit of a dramatic one. My husband was scheduled for a hip replacement but ended up having heart surgery because they found blockages in his major arteries. So I have been a
bit out of the loop when it comes to posting about my life and art in general. I will try to do a quick catch up for the last six months.  Luckily I take pictures so I can remember. I find without them I would not be able to reconstruct much of a time line. Here he is just out of recovery..amazing  He flew through both surgeries..and is so much better walking and doing everything. In fact we have traveled lots this summer.
