On Friday April 15, I had the opportunity to display my paintings at the opening of my solo show, “Lights”, at ROBOT Inside.  I’ve worked with artist Tara Heilman, the owner of ROBOT Inside, on a variety of artistic endeavors before, and I feel honored to have the chance to display my works solo for the first time at such an amazing art and sewing lab.

The works depict twinkling lights in a vast, yet comforting darkness, capturing the mystical, playful nature of their glow.  A touch of spring is evident throughout these works.  Scenes of vast skies, blossoming trees, cozy cottages, and warm lights are cast with melodic hues of rose, indigo, and lavender – singing of starry eyed wanderlust.

“Lights” will be on display at ROBOT Inside until May 12.

Painting With Pattern: painting series at Robot INSIDE


This past weekend I taught my first Painting with Pattern class at ROBOT Inside – a newly opened artistic learning center and art boutique located in downtown Sharonville, Ohio, led by artist Tara Heilman.  (Check out ROBOT Inside’s website to learn more!)  This Painting with Pattern class was the start of a series of monthly group painting classes I will be teaching there.  Let me show you all the fun my students and I had during the kickoff of my most recent artistic venture!
