Year ending, 2013

The Annual Holiday exhibit at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville will continue through Feb. 2, followed by another group exhibit Lyrical, opening Feb. 8, 2014. On another front, I was also recently honored to be asked to jury the 2014 Works on Paper show at the Philadelphia Sketch Club along with two other artists. This exhibit's opening reception is January 5, 2-4 pm and will continue until January 25, 2014. I will have my work "Through the Shoals" (flamingos) exhibited.

As 2013 draws to a close, in time of reflection, my personal thoughts on art is that it is something I hold onto like a life-preserver (or a security blanket). Even over the recent rough patches, where I wasn't able to actually produce anything tangible, I was still able to create both mentally and in form of simple sketches—which I feel are now a wealth of ideas to keep me busy for quite some time (not to mention new ideas). My paintings are a reflection of my experiences and thoughts, through my connection with the animal world using watercolor as my language.

Happy Holidays, and Happy Healthy New Year to all!

Lambertville for the Holidays

I had a great time at Artists' Gallery opening reception last Saturday! It's a great time of year when all 18 of the artists display their work in a group exhibit.  I had the opportunity to help hang the show, and I must say it's a great grouping of work!

I have a few new watercolor paintings at the gallery including; In Pain Sight (screech owl), Golden Eagle, Northern Cardinal, Twisted (Manikin on a Monkey-ladder vine), Feathered and some of my favorites that "feel wintery" including Red Flyer  (N. Cardinal), Stalk Walk (Ring-necked Pheasant), Lovie Dovie (Mourning doves) and Silent Flight  (Barn Owl). There is also a selection of my giclĂ©e prints available.

More information and art can be found at:

Lambertville, NJ has a nostalgic feel near the Delaware River, it has a nice variety of antique shops, galleries, and other unique stores as well as a great variety of restaurants. If you're in the area, stop in Artists' Gallery at 18 Bridge Street, we're open Thurs. through Sunday, 11am-6pm and meet one of our artists. The Holiday Exhibit will be up through January. (Please check for gallery hours in January).
