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.  

We are all affected by this Covid-19 mess.  This has been

a great time for me to put some art lessons for kids on-line.  You can see some at the Nelson-Atkins blog.  

Also, check out the website for 3DHQ on the Plaza in KC.  They are making reusable plastic masks and I have hand painted 25, so you can be safe and still make your own unique statement.  Go to

Welcome to my studio.......
