I am a part of the IMPACT Nebraska Artists organization and we have an ongoing exhibit that is inspired by the author Willa Cather. The exhibit debuted at the Willa Cather Foundation Art Gallery in Red Cloud Nebraska from May 29 - August 9, 2019. I am excited to say my piece sold along with several other artists. I needed to create a new painting since the show will be at another venue this fall. The one on the left is my first one "The Growth of an Artist". The second one, "HOME" is the current one. I created a photo transfers from a photograph from the family archives and these women are making a fun series.
I am so excited to announce that you can find my art among the beautiful offerings at Rustic & Red in Cozad, Nebraska.
Tammy Paulsen and Cathy Pflaster have encouraged my art journey for quite awhile. It goes back to when they were on the school board of District 13 and I was their art teacher.
Thank you Tammy and Cathy for this opportunity.
And yes all the art is for sale!

This piece has been selected for Silent Auction at the Mona Goes West Exhibit located at the Prairie Arts Center in North Platte, NE.
My painting, “Breaking Down Strongholds” is about digging deep and expressing more of myself, through a limited palette and materials. It is celebrating contrasts. The obvious ones are light and dark, smooth versus textural, pencil against the acrylic, but there is an obscure one that is essential to the creation of this piece. It is vulnerability. Most people see vulnerability as a negative, where fear, shame and a struggle for worthiness is at its core. However it is also the birthplace of creativity, joy, belonging and love. It is the latter I find the courage to be experiential and be authentic to my voice.
