Please join me if you're in the Syracuse area on Thursday evening for the opening of Syracuse University's Department of Art's Painting Alumni Retrospective. I'm honored and humbled to be included in such a significant show striving to explore the changes in painting in America over half a century and Syracuse University's contribution to it, beginning with alumnus Clement Greenberg '30. The opening reception is this Thursday from 6 - 8pm at 914Works in Syracuse. I'll be there with my mom, the first artist in my life!

Deemed the Kitchen God's Artist by NJ Savvy Living for my sainted appliances, I'm now known more for my vibrant, meditational paintings of chairs set surprisingly in landscapes. Since relocating to NC from NJ, mothering my two sons, and caring for our rescue pup, Cider, took the lead. Now, that my Durham home studio is renovated it's open again for virtual art coaching and the resumption of my personal art and commissions. The work I make is inspired by my joy of teaching, exploring nature, and traveling. On The Teaching Artist Blog, I share my approach to teaching and educate my readers about my creative process.
