In this interview recently filmed in my studio, I talk about how the pandemic and isolation has influenced my art practice during this difficult year. I share my recent work, and preparation for my show ISOLATION | EXPANSE which is on exhibit at Real Eyes Gallery May 1-30, 2021. Join me for the conversation as I share my thoughts and new techniques using oil and cold wax medium.

I am also exhibiting in EMERGENCE, a 4 person exhibit at the Eclipse Mill Gallery June 3-31, 2021. Featuring work by Debi Pendell, Diane Reed Sawyer, Sarah Sutro and Betty Vera, this show includes a rich variety of work in acrylic, collage, ink, oil and cold-wax, pastel, and Jacquard tapestry.
