ARTFIELDS 2017: Jones Carter Gallery

Nature's Sanctuary is an installation of a collection of over 400 dried botanicals and foliages enveloped in clear film bags float from the wall allowing shadows to be cast reminding us of their past yet present beauty. The collection, which includes exquisite orchids to roadside weeds, creates a refuge for discarded foliage and allows the viewer to find beauty in the shapes, structure, colors, textures and the seasons of nature.

The collection encompasses herbs, blossoms and foliage that were gathered from gardens and backyards, along the roadside, in public parks, on the beach, pulled from floral arrangements and are both wild, garden and hothouse grown

Hope you'll visit Artfields in Lake City, SC and check out my botanical installation in the Jones Carter Gallery from April 21-29, 2017!

Envisioning O'Keeffe at Columbia Collage

I'm so excited to be included in this installation at Columbia College which celebrates the time that Georgia O'Keeffe was a professor there. Each artist was given a pair of shoes and total creative freedom. The solutions are very thought provoking and celebrate the life of the most well known female artist.

Artfields 2015, Lake City, SC

Just got news that my art installation of symbols on wool panels will be exhibited in R.O.B., the old tobacco barn, during Artfields at Lake City, SC. Hope you'll be able to see this upcoming  exhibition of Southeastern artists from April 24-May 2, 2015.

Have your cake and eat it too…

I was so excited to finally meet Caitlin Freeman, author of Modern Art Desserts, last night with friend Susan Livingston at the Columbia Museum of Art. I found her book on the shelves at the Irmo Branch Library and was blown away by her artful interpretations of great works of art. Got to see her create her Mondrian Cake with the help of pastry chef Leah Rosenberg and although I couldn't eat the chocolate cake, David sure devoured it when I brought my piece home to him. Check out Blue Bottle Coffee during your next visit to San Francisco and hopefully in it's new space when the SFMOMA reopens in 2016!
