Dear Art Lover,

I have so much news to share with you this month I can hardly wait to tell you all about it.

I have been accepted into two premier art shows this summer, the Salem Art Fair in Salem, Oregon and Art In The High Desert right here in Bend. It will be the first time I will be showing my art in Salem and it will be my second year at Art In The High Desert. I hope to see you at one or the other of these shows.

I have also been invited to participate in a group show at the Sisters ArtWorks Gallery in Sisters, Oregon in August. The theme will be animals and I will be showing five wolf paintings. I'll share those with you next month.

Of course, this Friday is the Art Walk from 5-7pm. I will have my studio open, so please stop by and see what's new. I may even hold another auction because it was so fun last month.

I am collaborating with an award-winning filmmaker to make an online course titled "Art School 101 - The Fundamentals". We start shooting in a month. Watch for updates and special announcements on my Blog.

I am currently working on two dog commissions, and continue to host the super fun painting parties once a month.

I couldn't do any of this without you and your support. Thanks so much for being here.

I began painting in 2002 and have shown my work in the United States and Italy. I am honored to have had solo shows at the Rotunda Gallery at Central Oregon Community College in Bend, Oregon, Franklin Crossing in Bend, Oregon, Betty Gray Gallery in Sunriver, Oregon, John Natsoulas Gallery in Davis, CA, Gallery Blu in Santa Clara, CA, twice at Ameriprise Financial in San José, CA and Bank of America in Sunnyvale, CA. I have also had a solo museum show at Maturango Museum in Ridgecrest, CA and have shown with many amazing artists in group shows. I'm happy to say I've even won a few awards along the way.

I currently live in beautiful Bend, Oregon with my husband Sam.
