A simplistic study of nature in black and white.
Working on a small hand-made loom. Weaving in fabrics I have been saving and some I have used in recent design projects; along with bamboo and some jewelry that belonged to an old friend!
This is a recreation of a poster I found and knew that a friend would love; he is an avid biker. And was a challenge for me; sketching is not my strong suit!
This is an art piece I just finished with one of my erasure poems embedded into it. I am very excited about submitting this to Tiny Spoon Literary publication. It was accepted into their Spring 2019 Issue 2.
Another acrylic on canvas with erasure poetry.
Two acrylic on canvas; full of color and shape.
A compilation of six paintings and poems.

My First Solo is an art/erasure poetry piece based on the life of Beryl Markham, one of the first women of flight. This piece was accepted by Star 82 Review for their 5.4 December 2017 issue.
OK, perhaps a bit politically oriented, but certainly reflects the latter part of 2017, for me at least.
Painted for my young friend, Sam, for his graduation.
I know not everyone likes clowns, thanks to Stephen King, but I love them and have many fond memories of clowns at the circus.
This piece was a recreation from a neutral painting I was working on. An artist friend suggested I go back to my favorite color palette. She liked it so much she bought it from me.
This is an erasure art piece I plan to submit to Star 82 Review in the near future.
This is a recreation from a very large painting I did for my mom many years ago. She had seen the original painting at the art museum in Chicago and asked me if I could paint something similar for her. I gave the original painting to a very dear friend after my mom passed away.
This is an art/erasure piece based on a poem written for one of my writer's group assignments. I later did an "erasure" on my own poem and added it to my painting.

This is the second painting I have done with the watercolor background and photo/collage and drawing. It is a work in progress and so much fun.
Red Eye Flight
Flying to New York
This painting was originally an acrylic on canvas I did for a friend in Florida. I have recreated it as a watercolor and gave it to my dad.
These are two of my latest pieces that were done as submissions for the SoWeBo Arts Festival in Baltimore, Maryland.
This is a piece of wall hanging I put together last year for my Aunt Zelma. It was made entirely of my uncle's ties. Turned out awesome and a real tribute to his memory.
