2020 What a year!

So, with all the chaos of Covid-19 precautions, there have not been as many onsite classes as has been the case in other years. I have been doing select video consultations, individual classes both virtual and at outdoor sites. Some unique projects from the year include: Virtual Tulip Tour Workshop, Mike Rylke Nature Center, in Buffalo Grove, Illinois and the Perry Farm Gazebo on Coyne St, in Kankakee, Illinois.

Health and wellness have been on everyone’s mind as well. The year began with the death of my mother, after several years of illness. It was important to help my family deal with the loss and how much it has changed our lives. The recovery and all the miscellaneous details took much of the year to resolve. I am still dealing with nerve issues and was finally able to schedule a second cortisone treatment this fall. Due to reactions and healing requirements, I am only now beginning to resume my art making. I am hoping to resume video classes soon.

Now that we have reached flu season, and the uptick in cases of Covid-19 are shutting things down again, I am resolved to make the most of the time at home bringing you more virtual class options and getting my gallery here up to date with lots of lovely paintings and drawings, prints and more art options. So, watch for updates.

Let me know if you are interested in virtual classes, videos, pdf lessons and your suggestions or requests.

Happy Art Making!
