Dear Friends
and Colleagues,
I'm excited to announce I will be exhibiting my work in a group show this October at the Blue Hills Art & Cultural Center in Pearl River, New York. And here in Mass, after getting inspired last month while Kayaking the Charles and Mystic rivers, I'm now working on sketches of Boston area rivers. I hope you enjoy this peek at my process—including my color sketches and photos that inspired them—and hearing about plans for my River Series!

Take a Peek at my River Sketches
Inspired by light and reflection guiding me, I'm in the process of creating color sketches of Boston area riverways. Kayaking on the Charles and Mystic Rivers with Paddle Boston gives me the chance to explore nature and wildlife during COVID. I'll be using these preliminary sketches for future work. Please enjoy this peek at my River Series!
