  Persephone, 24"x30" original painting, acrylic on flat panel, $1300 plus s&h to the first asking nicely.  Link to purchase is below.   Please reach out   with any questions. This painting started about 18 months ago. She wandered for a bit, or perhaps I was the one who got lost. Nevertheless, she has arrived here in the studio, on the brink of spring no less. True to her namesake.  Persephone was the daughter of Demeter (the goddess of agriculture). She was kidnapped by Hades and forced to live in the underworld with him. While looking for her daughter, Demeter ceased caring for the harvest, and the earth turned barren. There are various versions of the myth, but Zeus ultimately demanded Hades release her. But this was complicated because, while held captive and grieving, Persephone ultimately broke her fast and ate 6 pomegranate seeds. Hades negotiated the compromise that she spend 6 months, one for each seed eaten, in the underground with him, and 6 months on the eart

Eve is ready for a home

  Eve, 24"x30", acrylic on flat panel, $1300 plus s&h to the first asking nicely, which you can do via   my website   or with   a sweet note to me . (PSST!! wanna learn to paint something like Eve, check out "Intuitive Painting," my online class with Kara Bullock.) Painting concepts are showing up these days at the oddest times. Typically I find my imagery inside my dreams, but there's been a shift. Lately ideas are coming direct to me during waking hours. This one showed up as I was rolling my yoga mat one icy cold snowy day in January. There was a bear and an apple tree, but not the visual, just a knowing. I had a sensation of the weight of the tree - the branches, greenery and fruit - filled the cavity of the bear's head, and the trunk trickled down the right hand edge. There was plenty of blue sky and sunshine I could feel but not really see.  I set out to explore this in paint, and two completely different pieces emerged. This is the most amazing p

Delta, a Momma Bear Painting

  Delta, 24"x24", acrylic on flat panel, $1200 plus s&h to the first asking nicely, which you can do via   my website   or with   a sweet note to me . I mentioned on my socials yesterday that my paintings are a singular object that acts as a touchstone for multiple moments. So when I look at a piece, I don't just see the final painting, but I remember all the experiences that keyed into her making. My oldest was recently married, my youngest readying to graduate university, which meant my role of mother was transitioning into something new. I officially had a new daughter while my other girl was leaping into adulthood. One of our favorite places to walk the dogs was sold to a developer. This historic area held weathered red barns and numerous outbuildings overgrown with vines and wildflowers - it was rich with texture and a complex variety of earthy reds. The brilliant red of the sumac and maples the fall prior to this painting, and how the underside of those same map

Wanna Paint with Me? launching an exclusive online workshop on the Talisman paintings.....

  Last month I snuck off to Kara Bullock's art studio in California and secretly filmed   an online workshop !! This project has literally been in the works for years (she was so kind and patient when i needed to reschedule in 2023). And I tell you it was well worth the wait - I could not be prouder of what we built together during our week. We built the course   "Intuitive Painting - Call and Response."   And it's a good one! For the first time ever, in a series of linear and comprehensive video lessons, I share the process of creating a Talisman painting, from concept to completion. What is a Talisman painting? well, if you're new around here (and welcome! there's a good number of you!), it's the series I've been working on the last 4 years. A Talisman itself is an object imbued with magic, luck, or specific meaning. My Talisman paintings are that and more - an animal subject infused with landscape elements, painted with expressive marks and lots of

Papilionidae, a new painting

  Papilionidae, 24"x24" original painting, acrylic on flat panel, $1200 plus s&h to the first asking nicely.  Link to purchase is below.   Please reach out   with any questions. Guess who felt pulled to the easel this week (yes, I admit, I've been a bit obsessed with drawing lately and not picked up my brushes for a hot second)?  I am looking for ways to initiating a shift in how I paint my animals, specifically Fox. Do you remember the saying "If you love something set it free. If it comes back, it's yours. If it does not, it was never meant to be." With that idea in mind I set about creating a series of pieces giving Fox permission to walk away, thinking that if she did return, she would be transformed into something different and fresh. In the meanwhile, Butterfly showed up. Or maybe this is Fox channeling her inner Butterfly as the metamorphosis occurs. Whatever it is, I have goosebumps when I'm in her presence. Papilionidae can be viewed up clos

March 2024 Classroom Calendar

  The Magic Space   is my membership program, an online classroom where students get a front row seat to what's playing out in the studio, guidance on my various techniques and instruction on how they, too, can weave their artwork with processes, symbols and subject matter uniquely their own. Started in 2017, it began as a way for me to deliver deeper insight and valuable content to artists wishing to understand how I approach making my own art. It also enabled me to form a closer relationship with students and provide an entirely different level of support than what a typical in person workshop might provide. Over the years Magic Space participants have unearthed their own stylistic tendencies and learned how to speak about the what and why behind their art, and deep friendships have formed. All classroom content is delivered digitally, with three live events each month (check out the   free sample lessons   I've got on my YouTube channel). Additionally students have access to
