My art was my secret for a long time before I began to show it to people including my friends and family. The next step in my evolution has begun with these shows. I love showing my work and talking with people about it and my experiences. Join me, see my art at these exhibits or contact me to arrange a private viewing.

Inspiration and Encouragement

The best thing about being an artist is the community and camaraderie. I’ve found so much encouragement from other artists, some personal, some educational, but most of my connections are both! Great thanks for the learning and encouragement from:

Martina Sestakova, Radost by Martina Sestakova

Clare Winslow, Creative Flow

Nicolas Wilton, Art2Life Creative Visionary Program

Pamela Caughey, Powerful Design and Personal Color

Jane Davies, Jane Davies Art

Nicola Newman, Flourish The Art of Creative Living

Lori Mirabelli, Lori Mirabelli Art

Most of all:

Mike Simon, my husband, the most supportive man in the world, who has made it possible for me to follow my heart since 1983.
