A turning point indeed! I can’t help but find the humor in the Universe’s timing of things lately. I am so honored to be featured in the “Unveiling” section of this months issue of American Art Collector magazine! Chrstine Egnoski did a wonderful job of summarizing these two paintings and all that they mean to me.
This issue is chock full of great content spotlighting some really inspiring artists like Megan Aline and Robert Lange, the artist owners of RLS gallery in Charleston, a fantastic article about my friend Jessica Gordon and a beautiful cover and preview for Alex Roulette’s upcoming show at George Billis Gallery in NY. Go grab a copy and get inspired!
Good friend Kristy Gordon has is having a solo show during the LIC Arts Open at the Factory Gallery in Long Island City.The show was curated by Tessa Kennedy, and her and Kristy asked to include my Chasing Rabbits piece. I’m so excited to have been asked ot share the walls with her fantastical new narrative pieces!
I will be at the closing reception on June 15th from 6-8pm. Come on by say hello and get inspired by her beautiful new work!
I am thrilled to announce that my piece “Chasing Rabbits” was a finalist in the Non-Commissioned Portrait category for the Portrait Society of America‘s Members Only competition and my piece “Rabbit Holes” placed 4th in the Outside the Box category!
Come see both of them in person (and me!) at the Poets and Artists

I am so incredibly honored to learn that my painting “Katie Nell Pinkard” has received 2nd Place in the Still Life Category for the Portrait Society of America’s Members Only Competition.
My great aunt, Katie Nell Pinkard passed away at age 103 on June 12, 2012. Her recipes, or lack there of, in my family are legendary, especially for her fried apple pies. There’s a lot more to the story, but to keep this post less than a book, I was unable to fly down and attend her funeral, so I spent the whole day/ weekend baking all my favorites of hers. Then I set up a still life and photographed it.The fan was hers and always in her kitchen. I love the noise it makes. Most of the items in the paintings were hers. The violets are because she had a knack for growing beautiful african violets, so I got these little guys in 2012 and now they are all flourishing and huge!!
