Why a series about women?! I'm told my water and sky scapes are sublime. I'm told my figures and portraits are rich with life and beauty. I'm told my watercolors are so expressive. So why would I begin a series focusing on women? Too political for some, and actually frightening to others is the thought of bringing to life women and their issues. Not to me however, and I must be true to myself.
"What Women Do" is an expose of the inner workings of women. This is not about the abuse, objectification, or rights of women. There are so many other artists working hard and well on these issues. Instead, I've chosen to focus on the beauty of women which includes their strengths, weaknesses, vulnerability, and brilliance. I feel so compelled to bring to life what I see in the feminine sex things that may be overlooked in order to honor them. So subtle is the grace of women. So powerful are the alternatives they find to create change and justice without the use of overpowering. This is a series waiting decades in my heart for me to find to the courage to express.
This first of many shows to come is on display at Gallery 66 in Cold Spring, NY. "Finding Power: Women of Courage, Passion and Character" will be at this venue from July 3rd - August 2nd, 2015. Please be my guest and find this show on my calendar of events here on this site. Thank you.
How nice to be asked for an interview! Toni Quest is a wonderful host on the Talk with TQ program focused on artists of all kinds. I was asked about my resent works, shows I'm in, my community work, my future plans. It was a good time and a relieving insight even for me. Enjoy Talk with TQ

June 7th ~ Artists open their studios, exhibits all over town, and tons of fun in Peekskill!
Not only am I an artist that will open to the public both days, but I'm the president of the PAA that hosts this annual event. So, I've been really busy event planning and all that goes with a citywide 2 day happening! Check out this video, it tells all!
Something VERY New! I’m pleased to present to you many new works for this show. “New Day” is a reflection of my personal thoughts and visions of allowing myself to let go, jump in and explore, for after all, each day is anew. I’m using lots of mediums and styles that have lain dormant for a while and bringing them out into the New Year. Come help me celebrate the New Day at the Opening Reception ~ Sat, Jan 4th from 4:00 - 6:00
ALSO ~ Next Show, March 7, 2014 I will be a featured artist at Gallery 66 where I am now being represented. Gallery 66 is located at 66 Main St., Cold Spring, NY. Here's the website: Gallery 66
