I am honored and grateful that both Ken Lovell and I are a part of this upcoming exhibition, Care: The Arts at Yale Health. Below is their Instagram feed. I am showing my Quarantine Collage series and Ken is showing Franconia Notch. A very big round of thanks to Meredith Miller and Peter Steere and the Arts at Yale Health Committee.
These original collages, were made during winter 2020-2021 in response to feelings of hibernation, isolation, and loneliness of quarantine during the COVID19 pandemic. They are made of book pages stained with India ink, and they are now available at my shop.
I am starting a Portrait class at Creative Arts Workshop this May. So herewith are some portraits that I am thinking about, in no particular order.
Here are some links to artists we talked about in Journaling last week.

I am sending these small paintings off for The Celebration of American Crafts Sale at Creative Arts Workshop this year. I love seeing them all together but I think I will be selling them individually. They are an illustration puzzle based on Jane Hirshfield’s poem, Three Foxes by the Edge of the Field at Twilight.
