this is a site to share new works as I finish them including paintings, illustrations, hand formed and shaped necklaces. ...and maybe I'll share a story or two about how they came about.
Life is slowing down and visions of layers, hats, coffee, soup, and blankets are dancing in my head. A cozy young woman with an afternoon to sip coffee and wander about town sounded lovely to paint - so ....here she is!

Red Accessories was inspired by a woman - wearing a big hat - that I saw sitting on a bench in SoHo, NY. This started out as a simple graphite sketch on natural paper. Recently, I decided to revisit the sketch and add a lake scene and a touch of color - hence the red accessories! I thought she had a classic calm feel to her like summer is ending and she has a chance to breathe!
