The dawning of spring was bitterly cold the year we visited Alaska. Of course, the Alaskan peoples were all overjoyed for the warmth of 0-20 degrees Fahrenheit! One of the most amazing things to me was the whiteness of the land. Being a Southern Californian (fifth generation, I’ll have you know) I’m acquainted, but not familiar with snow. The experience north was something I’d never seen before. The simplicity of the palate but rich texture of shade and light was dominant in the landscape.

I’m pleased to announce that I am one of eight artists that were chosen to create partner works for The Alzheimer’s Association, Orange County’s 2016 Open House & Art Auction as part of the Memories in the Making program.
Draw or paint along with veteran school teacher and award winning artist, K Ryan Henisey. As Ryan draws and paints an illustration of Medusa, he inspires with messages of creativity and achievement. Parents, teachers and kids alike will delight at this introduction to creativity.

On the Third Night of Halloween my mom-ster scared me with three grunting goblins…
two black cats and a skull for our skeleton tree.
