In the dead of winter I was organizing my efforts of the past, and found this grey tone oil done on paper. Not my typical style, but it seemed to fit the mood of the winter season. This work is called "Winter". It is a 21x29 inch - oil on paper. Contact me for the price.
I’ve been an artist for years, which has lead me to be carried in galleries across the country. This particular art show for my abstract landscapes was at Hayley Gallery in Columbus, OH. I’ve always enjoyed traveling to drop off my work at galleries and attend the openings, but this evening was even more special. I was able to meet the couple who purchased my abstract landscape on metal. With galleries representing me in New Jersey, South Carolina, Ohio and Indiana I don’t always get to see the client’s reactions to my work and thank the buyer for choosing me.
I know what you’re thinking since I post all my art shows on the blog. No, I wasn’t part of the Venice Biennale, but wouldn’t that be amazing! ;)
My husband and I had the chance to sneak away to italy for a bit and attend the Venice Biennale. It was an incredible experience and I was filled to the brim with inspiration and couldn’t wait to get back to my easel to start painting.
Contemporary European art volume size scale - everything there overwhelming - edgier - go beyond the boundaries of what I’m used to seeing - impact of the power of art and what you can say (and do say) as an artist through your artwork.
I’ve been showing my abstract landscapes at the Hyde Park Art Show for three years now and 2017 was my best year yet! It was a fast weekend fill with good weather and a great crowd. People are always up for a conversation about my abstract landscape paintings, and the stories about each place are always special to talk about for me.
From my experience, sharing the process of how I created the piece and what inspired it builds a one-of-a-kind connection with the buyer.
Here’s something that doesn’t happen every day - FOX News invited me to be interviewed!
For the past 25 years, the Berringer Crawford Museum’s annual gala freshART as raised more than a quarter million dollars for the museum’s educational outreach program. To celebrate their big 2-5 they invited 25 of the region’s best artists to work en plein air at Covington’s Devou Park to create works for the event’s live auction. I was honored to be one of the 25 artists selected for the event.

Here I am with my abstract landscape Harbinger of Fall at the Cincinnati YWCA exhibit opening of “Local Gems: Impressions of Earth and Space.” The executive director of the YWCA selected my work, along with three other women artists, out of 500 total entries from Art Comes Alive, a national art competition and exhibit.
The “Y” is on a mission to eliminate racism and empower women. I was honored to be selected and to support such a great cause.

I had the great pleasure of working on a commission artwork for this wonderful couple. Custom works of art are always fun for me to create because it takes me back to the days when I ran a successful interior design studio. I get to work with the fabrics and existing color palette and inject new life into the space with one of my colorful abstract landscapes.
The soft sunset pink matches the credenza perfectly, but it was important for me to balance that color with cooler blue and green tones. The clients absolutely loved the pieces and couldn't be more thrilled to have a pair of custom abstract landscapes in their home.

Inspiration for a new painting. This is part our recently planted garden at the Lake Lorelei cottage.
Elizabetta and Veronica, children of some very good friends, visited us for a day. We enjoyed lunch, an art workshop in my studio, and then toured the DiVinci exhibit at the museum. What a wonderful time! Hope to visit them and the whole family again when we next go to Europe.
“Love of the Land” a 48x48 oil on canvas was accepted into the 2016 OSFFAE. This piece was inspired by the glorious Autumn we have here in Ohio. The opening reception is in Columbus on 7/26/2016 from 6 to 8 PM.
“Floral Fantasy #2” a 36x36 oil on canvas was accepted into the KHAC 10th annual summer show. This piece was inspired by the vivid and lush colors of my garden, which has a special meaning for me. You see, my first palette for creating beautiful landscapes was my garden, and my tools were a hoe and trowel. Now my tools for creating colorful landscapes is a palette knife, oil and canvas. The show opens 7/18/2016 with a reception from 6 to 8 PM; and closes on August 13th.
Gathering inspiration on a trip to Arizona, Nevada, Utah and a small bit of California. This photo is “Wall Street” in Bryce Canyon National Park. The light and color are something to be seen. Other parts of the trip included Death Valley, The Glass Bridge over the Grand Canyon, and “The Narrows” in Zion National Park. Oh, so much to see, and so little time to paint it all.
I was invited to be the artist in residence at this boutique inn at the entrance to Kiawah and Seabrook Islands, South Carolina. Wow, a week doing what I love to do, painting, at a premier location.
What a wonderful family trip to the D.R. Spring break offered the infrequent opportunity to get the whole family together. We stayed at our friend Cliff York’s home “Casa Blanca” on Cofresi beach. Painted some; rested some; and got inspiration for a long time to come.
