Coming this winter – a holiday art market in Northeast Kansas City!
It’s been an overwhelming month in studio. I saw a lot of art this month, worked on several tangential projects that eroded my time, and tried to keep pushing things forward. Here’s how the month went:

In response to the ongoing coronavirus crisis, I’m now offering my painting and drawing lessons as private Skype classes in lieu of in-person classes.
There’s nothing like moving to slow down your momentum…
