The Survivors

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, my painting "The Survivors" Notice there are no women running in the distance. This is because either these women are so far ahead one can't see the other runners or, as I like to think about it, the women we see are the last of the women runners. But it doesn't matter that they're last because they're happy to be alive and running. They're the survivors.

We Must Act Now

Today is the first day of the Global Climate Strikes, one of the most important issues of our times. We need to act now before we reach the point of no return which many scientists say is 2030. To honor this movement, this crisis, is my painting, ”Heads Above Water”.


Heads Above Water


Hard Decision

In "Hard Decision" a broken woman stands before a wall of death with a bottle in her hand and a basket full of opioids. Time is running out for her but she has no trust in the system. The drug epidemic is heartbreaking. "Hard Decision" is being featured at the National Association of Women Artists 130th Annual Members' Exhibition at One Art Space, 23 Warren Street, NYC from Sept. 21 - Oct 2. For those in the area the reception is September 26, 6pm - 9pm.

Everything Is Art

A plus size mannequin in a regular store. Now if we could only put a head on her.

teamLab

On a recent trip to Philly I saw this incredible piece, “Continuous Life and Death at the Now of Eternity” by teamLab. I'm fascinated by the work they are doing. It was contanstly changing yet remaining true to itself. Wondering how I can apply this to my work and still show. They’re doing a fascinating combination of at and technology.  Hard to explain but there’s lots to see on their website.

Louis Rosemond

Louis Rosemond’s masterpiece Ms. Annacarona.  Henry Pellissier, another amazing Haitian artist, signature’s on the left side so even though the work is solely attributed to Mr. Rosemond, maybe it’s a collaboration or some kind of acknowledgement on Mr. Rosemond’s part. The work can be seen at the Little Haiti Cultural Center in Miami. It’s huge, 96 x 144 inches, and gorgeous. My photo doesn’t do it justice.
