What's been happening recently?

Pulled some old photos from Paris to paint a homage to Notre Dame Cathedral, from before the April fire that demolished the spire and roof.  

Welcome to my studio.......

Summertime means adding some color, movement and fun to my work - taking a break from all of the violence in the city.....

Come visit with me in my studio to hear about my latest activism projects - working with Mothers In Charge to help stop local violence.  This work has inspired the Balloon Series/works on paper about the emotional side of losing a loved one to violence, inspired by the tradition of letting balloons go in remembrance of a lost relative.  The "Anger" piece was recently chosen to be in the permanent collection at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.  


Reflections of Hope: Armistice 1918 was featured in Forbes Magazine, Parade Magazine, the KC Star Newspaper, The Star Tribune paper from Minneapolis, KC Studio Magazine, and on five news stations.  Hope you got a chance to see it in person!!  The poppy Installation at National World War I Museum & Memorial has now been removed.  To buy a poppy, contact the Museum at give@theworldwar.org.
