Welcome to


Welcome to my website. It has undergone a "facelift", but I am sure that you will recognize some of your favorite things! Take a moment to browse. We have added a new gallery showcasing a few of the pieces that were on display at the National Museum of Decorative Painting 2014 Exhibit, A Painted Garden.

Thanks to those of you who followed me with my Twelve Months of Roses last year. The giclees are posted in the Gallery so you see them all together. They were limited and are no longer available for purchase.
