Wild Plums Book Series 2020

About the Series:

My new artwork series is a meditation on my childhood growing up off-the-grid in rural Iowa. My goal is to write a children’s book using this series of 20 paintings as the illustrations for the book. Thank you to the Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation – BeWildReWild – Community Artist Grant for your generous support of my project.

New Gallery & Artwork Shop


I have a new online gallery…hurray!

Creating it has been a true labor of love for some time now, so I’m delighted to see it this morning fully up and running. There are still several paintings and a few collections I need to add to it, but I’m excited with how it has turned out so far. I especially love how I can group the paintings into different collections, as well as have one collection showing all paintings together.


This gallery also serves as my new artwork shop. I’ve partnered with Fine Art America, the premiere artist support company online, to do all the printing. Because they have such a wide network, orders can be placed & shipped world-wide and products include professional artist prints in a range of paper (like watercolor, rag & velvet), prints on canvas, metal & acrylic, greeting cards and even artwork prints on iphone cases. (I’m especially excited about getting a new iphone case with my artwork on it!)IMG_2212

They also offer a wide range of framing & matting options in a variety of sizes, so you can customize the painting to fit where it will hang. The best thing is they have full customer service for buyers and a money back guarantee on all products. I’m so very grateful for their partnership with all of this amazing support and look forward to the places this new path will take me.

I’d love for you to visit the new gallery & post a comment below.

New Painting: Silver Sari with Pink & Green Wings


I’m up late tonight in the studio finishing a new dog painting. This one is of Sari, my black & silver mini-dog. In this design she is wearing green earrings and has matching pink & green wings.

Golden Mavi with Pink Wings

A fun painting to celebrate my five new paint colors including my new favorite – shimmery antique gold. Mavi is my real life mini-dog & sits next to me while I paint – my sweet loyal companion.

New Colors!

Post July 21

Excitement today in the studio with the appearance of the FedEx truck delivering my new art boards & paints. I now have five new colors, including a beautiful gold shimmery paint that I just love. I made a painting of my dog, Mavi, using these five colors to celebrate the new set. Days like today remind me how much fun art can be and why I love it so much.
