Portland Open Studios

Once again, I am fortunate to have been selected to participate in 2012 Portland Open Studios Tour occuring the 2nd and 3rd weekends in October. Earlier this year, I moved to a new studio space loaded with natural light. I’m excited to share my new space and recent work with you.

Portland Open Studios is a unique opportunity to see artists paint, sculpt, draw, print, throw, carve, sew and more in the studio spaces where they work every day. Ask about their tools and techniques and learn more about the creative process directly from the 100 participating artists.

People’s Gallery Exhibition

Beginning June 15, 2012, I will have 2 paintings exhibited at The People’s Gallery at Pioneer Place in downtown Portland. Named “The Landscape Show’, the exhibition will feature diverse interpretations of landscape subjects. Opening June 15. For this exhibition, I chose 2 acrylic pieces   painted on heavy blotter paper donated to me when I was teaching. The paper was a challenge to work with, but the texture was amazing.
