Kindness Takes Root Found A Home

I am so excited to say that one of my 2016 paintings, Kindness Takes Root, found a home with the Sykes family.  I hope it warms their hearts and guides their steps.  Thank you for supporting local artists!

Spirit Animal Painting

I recently completed this commissioned piece based on the spider as a spirit animal.

Gearing Up for the First 4th Friday

Around ACoT {Art Center on Tusc} we are gearing up for Barberton's 4th Friday Art Walk.  You will see lots of lovely art from all of the artists.

Here are a couple of things I've been preparing:

I hope you will come out Friday, February 26, 5 - 9 p.m.   Stop by to chat and enjoy the art!

Newspaper Transformation: Roses of Repurposed Hope

Do you remember the painted newspaper from earlier this week?

They were transformed via paint, cutting and folding.

And then they were added to a painted canvas. Voila!

Wisdom Cards

I've made some miniature piece of art that combine both affirmations and inspiring quotes on these little hand painted gems.

These cards are made of durable chip board.  Each one is
uniquely painted and embellished with paint and ribbon.  Wisdom cards are a lovely tool.

Cuppa Joy

When I was invited to create a piece of coffee cup art for a show I had no idea what I was going to do.  Eventually I decided to bring some of my handmade paper and love of book arts into the project.

As a little play on "cuppa joe,"  I created a Cuppa Joy--a book of quotes on handmade paper in a coffee cup covered in handmade paper.

The show opening is Friday, February 26, at Nine Muses Gallery in Barberton.  The show opening coincides with George Kurka's solo show, Alchemy, and Barberton's new 4th Friday Art Walks.
