Projects & Events


I’m NOT the kind of artist that works on just one project at a time. NAY!  NAY!  I always have many (um…yes…too many!) going on at once.  This page highlights just a few of my recent projects and workshop events.  If you have any questions about showing or purchasing my artwork, attending a workshop, or if you’re interested in having me speak to your group or organization, please Contact me.

My life’s passion is all about sharing the magic of art and healing! Very excited to announce that I’ll be part of the 2016-2017 faculty (for the 3rd year in a row), teaching “Workshop Design Lab” for the amazing Color of Woman School !
