A long break

So I haven't been blogging for some time.
I simply have had too much to do to keep up. I hate that feeling but felt like something had to give. I am hoping to get back posting on a regular basis soon. Lots of nice things are happening in the studio and fun opportunities are coming alive (more on that at a later date).

I was kindly featured  on Minimal Exposition.  David posted about some of my recent works.

Here is a close up of what may turn into a whole series of "Dayglo Fat". As you can see I am really enjoying pushing the "fat series".

Whole Lotta PINK!

Whole Lotta is a new soon to be frequent post giving homage to the LOVE of colorI aim to feature works that bring these rich colors to the forefront. Pink has been in my studio lately more than ever. It's like an old friend I should have never forgotten about. As a young girl this color meant something very different. I am now drawn to it's lush boldness and quirky power it can possess. Please click on the artist's name for more information.
