New Book: A Childhood in Nature

Thank you to my family, friends, and supporters for encouraging me through a difficult season with my health. I’m happy to say that I’m feeling much better and have some exciting artwork news to share. My newest book is finished and the final proof arrived this weekend. Yay!

In October of 2019, I received an Artist Community Gathering Grant from the BeWildReWild Fund of Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation to complete this book. I’d like to say thank you to everyone there for this year of painting – working on this project about my childhood in rural Iowa. To see it all come together now in this lovely book is pretty amazing for me.

And I love the new size. It’s 12×12 inches square, and turned out to be so nicely printed. The colors really shine!

I’ve updated my whole website with new pictures, as well as a projects page featuring a bunch of previous art projects. Wow!! So many paintings! I’m looking forward to what the future brings and all the bright colors I’ll see. I hope you are, too.

Sending love and blessings,
