It’s that time of the year again! The 8th Annual Art Auction to benefit The Hirsch Wellness Network programs Saturday October 8, 6-8.30pm

The Gallery at Revolution Mill

1150 Revolution Mill Drive

Greensboro, NC 27405


The Hirsch Wellness Network provides free programs in art, yoga, meditation and gardening classes for cancer survivors and their caretakers.  It’s a great evening of fun, live music, wine and food! And the chance to bid on some really beautiful ceramics, fiber art, painting, jewelry, drawings, quilts.. oh, yeah. I have never left empty handed. Which can get expensive-but it’s all for  GOOD cause, right?!

Here are the  2 pieces I donated for the silent auction-all proceeds from the art auction sales go to pay for the programs.


Now showing at NC Craft Gallery in Carrboro, NC


AWOL-absent without leave



A small piece with a lot of turbulent emotions







Some of the stages in the development for my latest piece, which started as a painting of a woman beside a vase of flowers, with a bird on her shoulder. A hand has materialized from nowhere to hold the bird.


It’s actually very helpful to see the images side-by-side as it helps me see the lines, forms and negative spaces much clearer. This is a bigger piece where I am trying to incorporate more linear elements, with the solid forms. Hmmm. Lots of adjustments needed for everything to fit together smoothly.


Cotton baby jacket for baby Camille, due any day now

However, I am getting side tracked by the need to knit baby garments for friends daughters and sons and nephews and nieces whose babies are all due from November -February!
