The Holiday Glow Art Sale & Show & Charity Benefit was a huge success.  I earned over $3000 for our local homeless mission.  The work they do for our community is priceless and I am happy to give 1/2 of all my art sales to support their good work!

I plan to expand my glass fusing work - and do abstract birds, along with landscapes and fish.  And I loved making the "Little Behinds" monoprint series ( the backsides of cute little animals!) and user friendly string puppets...new items for me this year.

Happy New Year - I hope you are well-blessed!

Bismarck Art Show BAGA

Life is a whirlwind - and I love it! A trip to Budapest, Vienna and Prague, then to Puerto Rico and sandwiched-in visits to our daughters and grandkids. I don't put my suitcase away these days, just wash laundry when I get home and repack for the next trip!

My show at the Bismarck Art Gallery opens on Feb. 28. The reception is March 2 - everyone is invited, the more the merrier! My exhibit is called "Can You See the Forest for the Trees & Prairie Snapshots". I'm posting a few photos here.

Waiting patiently for spring in the north country...

About Me

My photo
North Dakota, United States
Born and raised in Williston, North Dakota. Degrees in Occupational Therapy (never chose to work in the field) and Visual Arts. Married for 33 years to a super wonderful guy, three daughters - all three are talented, educated, contributing, beautiful members of our great big world. I am so proud of them...they are my best accomplishment to date! I love to make art and teach about it, too. An etsy friend recently shared this quote with me from St. Francis of Assisi: "He who works with his hands is a laborer, he who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman, he who works with his hands, his head and his heart is an artist." I think it is a wonderful statement!
