2017 Art & Nature at the Arboretum – Save the Date!

Hope everyone can stop by this year’s Art & Nature at the May Arboretum event on July 30th.  It’s a wonderful opportunity to stroll through the lovely gardens and groves, support the May Arboretum by purchasing artwork in the silent auction, visit with artists, poets, and musicians, and to stop and say hi while I’m creating and selling art in this inspiring setting.  Click here for details.

Sketch From Chattering Birds Garden

I created my series Chattering Birds Garden as a way to have a place to feel peaceful and restful during a time I was experiencing sadness.  It’s a fanciful garden that continues to evolve with stories about the whimsical birds who live there.  On my website,, I share updates through my art and sell notecards, prints, and orginal art in my online store, the Garden Gift Shop so you can bring a piece of the garden to your home. I would love for you to visit.  When you do I hope you too will feel refreshed and excited to share peace with the world.
