I have signed on to take the 2015 Year of the Spark class with Carla Sonheim and Lynn Whipple

My goals for the class are to loosen up and have fun trying new things and meeting new friends. I look forward to seeing how this experience informs my new work this year. 

I am looking forward to the four commissions I have on my schedule in the next few months.

I am also thrilled to announce that I will be speaking at the Nantucket Historical Association's Whaling Museum in June. I worked at the Main Street Gallery on the island back in the mid-late '80's when I was a college student. It was while working at the gallery that I fell in love with an artist's works of formal, realistic oil portraits of farm animals. I have held these portraits in my imagination, knowing that some day I would do large portraits of animals. The Beasts series is a result of this goal and returning to Nantucket to give back to the community that brought me so much joy is something I am so very grateful for. 

I hope to begin writing a book proposal about the various ways I have used tissue paper in my work over the past eight years. 

What are your goals for 2015?
