Mark your calendar for this great opportunity to view all kinds of art work and the studios where it was created.  

This is my  second time to participate in this great neighborhood event in Asheville, North Carolina. I join 14 other artists who will be opening up their homes or studios to display, sell and talk about their art. We are all part of the Kenilworth Artists Association.

Come and support your local artisans!


This year at my address – 17 Buckingham Court, two neighbors will join me.  There will be a yard full of art- jewelry, pottery and my own mixedmedia and paintings!

For more information on each artist check out  this link: Kenilworth Artist Associaton.

This was a piece from Alena Hennessy’s online class “a year of painting II” that I finished up this past year.

We shared collage pieces with other artists in the class using them to inspire a collabrative piece. My fox face, sun and leaves came from Alexis in Oregon I moved these pieces around till the fox image caught my attention and then had fun creating a space for him to play.

First time to do a collabrative piece – great fun!

With graduations lurking in the months ahead I was inspired to make a few cards from a sheet of mixed media art I produced from a Strathmore Workshop. I cut up the sheet and got out some transfers I thought might look good against the flowing backgrounds. Voila – inspiration hit and here they are.

Following a workshop from Strathmore I played along with “doodles unleashed” by Traci Bautista. It is a watercolor collage with some stencils mixed in then coming back in with doodles in markers. FUN FUN FUN! Thought I lost it when I did the painting but coming back in with the doodling made it come alive again.
