make art. transform life.

thoughts about creativity and  art:   live your life as your work of art.

Art & books, discover two of my favorite things!

Come see my art inspired by spring at Dolphin Bookshop in PortWashington. It is a rare opportunity to see refreshing work while enjoying a  cup of green tea or a latté. You also have a diverse selection of books and toys at your fingertips in case you need to purchase either. You are right near the park that borders on Manhasset Bay, and you can walk outside by the seawater!   Imagine, ALL of this in one short trip! The exhibit will be up until the end of March.

Perhaps I will even be there at one of those sunlit tables. If not, I will be in my studio beginning my next project and reviewing my 120 journals which I have created over the years!  But more about those two things in my next post.

I am beginning to get work ready for my Open Studio in June. The date will be announced and listed on the Events page. Or you can sign up for my once a month newsletter, right at the bottom of the page!

I do love to hear your thoughts about my work, the exhibit or a specific piece here in comments or on my contact page. Looking so forward to hearing from you! Oh yes, and to keep up with what I am making and showing, please, subscribe, below!

The Dolphin Bookshop Café

299 Main St.,  Port Washington, NY 11050

opening reception is Sunday, March 6th from 2 - 4 pm

on exhibit from March 1  thru March 31, 2016

 I  look so forward to you coming by to the reception. If you can't make it then, absolutely stop by anytime the bookshop is open ,  by the end of March.

The work reflects the kind of intimate and expansive views of the natural surroundings you see on Long Island's North Shore. A lot of my observations are from Oyster Bay , sometimes even in my backyard!  I hope it inspires you to see the beauty right in your own backyard! here to see some of the work on display....
