Updates to Website

I have recently posted all of my work so far from my current ‘Folklore’ series under the “Current Work – Folktale Series (2013-2017)” section on the lefthand side of the home page, and under the “2010-2013 Paintings” subpage, found under “Previous Work” from the home page.  I still have images to post to the 2010-2013 section from the “Tapestry Series”, which was my first series of encaustic paintings, so check back soon!  More to come under “Previous Work” for prior years.

 

Summer class roundup!

My summer Evening Basic Drawing class at the St. Louis Artist’s Guild has recently wrapped up, so I thought I’d share some images of my amazing students’ work!

The first few drawings of teacups are from the first class, before instruction began, then pictures of a few of the classes, and finally, the drawings from the final project of the last class.  So proud of everyone’s progress!
