"When Birds Begin to Pair"

For Valentines Day I was asked by the local paper to create a piece of artwork having to do with the holiday. I created a linoleum print of two little birds facing one another sitting on a teacup.

A few days after the article ran and women e-mailed me and asked if she could purchase the piece to give to her daughter as a wedding gift. She said it would be perfect and she kept the article to give to her as well. I love that! The wedding gifts I most remember were the sentimental ones...thank you to her for purchasing a local art piece for such an occasion.

A night for the Arts

Last night was the opening of "ConTextual" and also our student exhibit at BHS, "Observation". Both shows were a great success! Thank you for your support of the arts in our community.

I based my work for "ConTextual" on this gorgeous ficus tree in Hawaii I saw last November.

"Building Strength" stands 15" and is for sale for $325 with a portion of the proceeds going to First Book Bakersfield. It can be purchased through the Arts Council of Kern.
Below you can see it in progress last month at my house.
