I was recently profiled by VoyageRaleigh, a California-based media outlet that has local bases focused on profiling creatives, entrepreneurs, and change-makers. The interviews are written by the individuals, in response to questions from VoyageRaleigh. I'm thrilled that I had the opportunity to share the path of my art career, which has currently landed in Durham, NC, by way of NJ.

It's not every day that you get to announce your art has been included in a digital magazine with 36 other talented artists from around the world. Well, today is that day! The April issue of Women in Art 278 just came out and my work is featured on page 27.
Women in Art 278 was established in 2013 to showcase the work of women artists. The first issue featured 27 artists that represented 8 countries, which is where the magazine's title was derived. The magazine can be explored digitally for free, or purchased in print form. Check out the list of artists included in this issue. Thank you Women in Art 278 for the inclusion!
In reading the issue, Liesl Marelli, the magazine's editor, writes that she is seeking submissions from artists of photos depicting their own art studios and why they are perfect for them. The magazine is hoping to offer examples of ideal studios to artists aspiring for that perfect creative space, to learn what makes a studio function and promote creativity.
So, in that vein, here are a couple of shots of my studio and why it works for me. Though still not my ideal for several reasons (mainly running out of space and little vertical storage for stacking paintings), it works for me now because it is in my home and allows me to do the following:
If you have studio shots to share, send them to Women in Art 278, attention of Liesl Marelli. Enjoy the magazine and all of the art and artists to explore.

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.
