art tour of my paintings

September 20, 2016


In my last post, I mentioned I finally began organizing
my studio, which I put off doing for a year since
the renovation left me with no time to paint.

I now have a handful of commissions for paintings
and am happy to be on the floor with a brush again!

If you are an interior designer or desire to collect
my work, I hope to post a small inventory soon.

Join me for a cyber gallery walk?
Here is a little art tour with examples of work sold
to private individuals, boutique owners, and designers.

Acrylic on canvas - lives with me


Abstract seascapes on canvas - SOLD/Splendid Avenue in Seattle, WA

Beach and water  lovers will be able to understand
how I never tire of creating seascapes.

There is nothing quite as humbling or relaxing
as being near the waves, and I try to capture
the essence of their mysterious mix of power and calm
with a minimum of brushstrokes and a
restrained palette of blues, greige, and white.

I went through a nightscape phase too.

my panel at home of photographer/artist Melissa James

In 2010, before the market was saturated with sign-age
and quote-art, I created typography and
edgy urban panels for our home.

My friends loved them so I began
creating them to sell at my shop and a few
boutiques in Chicagoland.



Typography panels on canvas - live with me


As the trend and the demand picked up for typography,
I received a ton of commissions for special song
lyrics and quotes and shipped these all
over the country as anniversary gifts, etc.

Thanks for joining me on the art tour.

I hope to list inventory in my shop
in the coming months along
with great vintage finds.

Next time, I will share mixed media
collages I create on vintage discarded
book covers which incorporate my
love of poetry and the written word.

I'm sharing this post with these
lovely bloggers.

Peace to you right where you are.

  8. Your work is beautiful! So soothing and peaceful. I also love your typography. One thing that is unusual that I love is how you carry some letters of a word down to another line. I would have thought it wouldn't look good, but it sure does! Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
    hugs,
