HI Everyone
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. I have a few announcements this month for those that are interested, including a new featured interview with me in a Philadelphia newspaper, a couple of virtual shows, and the upcoming Chester County Studio Tour. And of course, I'm still busy in the studio making new art. See below:

Newspaper Interview
I have an interview in the Chestnut Hill Local newspaper in Philadelphia this week. Written by Len Lear, you can also read the interview online (see link below).

Some of my work in the window at Borrelli's Chestnut Hill Gallery in Chestnut Hill, which represents my work in the area.

Update to my interview: I originally did the interview with the reporter a few weeks ago and I mentioned the upcoming rescheduled Chester County Studio Tour and in the interview at  the time I said was unsure if it would go ahead. The tour is a go, and takes place September 19-20. (My host is Ivystone Studio in Downingtown, and we will also be hosting an unofficial pre-show on September 18, 5-8 PM.)

New Gallery in West Chester Now Open!
Very recently I was asked to show some work in a brand new gallery in West Chester, PA.  The David Katz Gallery is located at 128 East Gay Street and features work by artist David Katz as well as small works from a variety of area artists. I have ten minis currently at the gallery. While the space had a 'soft opening' earlier this July, the official Grand Opening will be Saturday, Sept. 11, 5-8 PM. In the meantime, you are welcome to check out the space (masks are required).

Watch a youtube video interview with David Katz about the gallery and his work.

Private Studio Visits Available
Since many of my art shows and festivals have been cancelled due to the coronavirus, I am now allowing private appointments to visit my artwork in my Norristown, PA, studio. Email me at with inquiries. All visitors will need to adhere to Covid prevention guidelines such as wearing masks, and no more than two visitors at a time. 
Please note that unfortunately, my studio is not wheelchair / handicap accessible as it is only reachable by staircase.
