Happy Holidays!

Hi all
We got this. 2020 is coming to a close.
I hope you are staying safe and enjoying your fall / early winter. First of all a big thank you to everyone who came out to see me at this past September's rescheduled Chester County Studio Tour. Because of you all, I had my most successful art show of my entire 13-year art career. I sold 23 original paintings during the course of that weekend, and of course, got a chance to see many of you in person (socially distanced and with masks, even still!) which was a real pleasure.

For those of you who couldn't make it out to that show, you are in luck as I have several very special shows happening in the next couple of weeks - "Everyday Magic" at Exhibit B Gallery in Souderton, PA; "A Bit of the Arts" Holiday Art Show in Lansdowne, PA; and two special holiday events at Red Raven Art Company in Lancaster, PA. Continue reading below for details. In addition to these art shows, I am busy in the studio working on a 9 painting commission for a new client. Some of these commissioned paintings include beautiful portraits of women of color. I don't normally paint humans, so if you want to check some of these out, scroll down to my recent work section of the newsletter.

if you would like a private appointment to come visit my studio in Norristown in person (masks are required) then, please email me at

This is my first year participating in A Bit of the Arts, an annual fine art and craft show featuring painting, ceramics, textiles, jewelry, glasswork, woodworking and more.

There will be two floors to visit, and I'll be in the main hall. See the floor plan of the main hall here.  I will have a full 10x10 feet booth set up so stop on by as I will have lots of new artwork for you to check out. I will have a full range of art there, from miniature paintings starting at $100 up to large scale works.
