After two years of a silent studio , I finally had the time, energy and desire to create some new works. More to follow.


Green Boat 11″ x 14″ Oil on Canvas Created 8/28/08

After a very rainy Saturday that canceled the 57th Annual Art Show, it was held on the following Sunday. A beautiful September day! There were not quite as many artists displaying their wares but there were plenty of art lovers admiring the wide range of talent available at this years show. In my opinion, it was a huge success.

I want to thank some special people who purchased my art pieces…. First, to Paul and Gayle D. who purchased this painting titled, Green Boat. I loved their relationship and there decision making qualities.

This was the last painting I finished about a week before the show and the first to sell. It was also my first sale of a painting at an art show and a proud and special moment for me. I’m finding it easier to let go of my creations and thrilled I can share the pieces with people like Gayle and Paul. It also inspires me to create more. Thank you!!


I’d also like to give a special thank you to Jeanette and Tammy C. who purchased four of my sculptures as well as a thank you to, Lois S., Bob S., and Stacey K. for purchasing one of my sculptures. It’s very rewarding finding kindred spirits who appreciate and understand my art.


Finally, I would like to thank my family and my friends who have either gently or otherwise pushed me to keep going forward.
Some of my biggest supporters have been my two teenage daughters. With their honest critique and constant encouragement, I have moved forward with comfort instead of fear.

I’d also like to thank Lis for her support, friendship and patience, Steve for his expertise and guidance and Connie C. who constantly encourages me to use what gifts I have and Julie for giving me the best gifts of all. Thank you!!! I honestly could not have done it without any of you.
