Cecil Byrne Gallery



  My work is now represented by Cecil Byrne Gallery located at  7 Broad Street in historic Charleston, South Carolina.  I am very honored to be in this particular gallery.  The owner, Cecilia Murray is an artist and my work hangs beside hers and many accomplished artists :)  It was a wonderful first trip to Charleston last weekend to drop off 4 paintings from my DUNES series.  We enjoyed every moment of our trip to this city famous for art, history and food!

Figure Drawing 7/1/2015



I went to my first figure session at South Arts Pittsburgh  where I will teach a palette knife painting class on August 22.  I haven't drawn live figures since college.  It takes practice to do these 15 min. poses.  The evening flies by!
