Alcohol Ink Workshop - 3 fabulous days at Visual Arts Center

This 3-day alcohol ink workshop will cover a variety of techniques using my favorite medium, alcohol ink. You will have a plethora of finished work and ideas flowing for months (if not years). My students have commented, “you have changed my life!” (seriously!!!), “you unleashed my passion,” “awesome,” “inspiring,” “mind blowing.” All true!!! You will love the magic of the ink, whether you’re new to art, new to inks, want to loosen up, or just have fun, this workshop is for you. Come and see what everyone is talking about. Go to visualartcenter.org for more information.

Mangrove Gallery at Englewood Art Center Art Reception

I will be displaying my newest work at the lovely Mangrove Gallery at Englewood Art Center from Tuesday Novermber 13 through Saturday, December 15, 2018.

I’m looking forward to showing off my latest series, “Birds with Shoes.” There will also be several smaller abstract paintings on tile. All created with my favorite medium, alcohol ink. If the birds with shoes doesn’t ruffle your feathers, the Florida Suncoast Watercolor Society will also be on display at the same time.

I hope you get a chance to stop by. There will be an artists reception on November 17th from 2-4:00 for both the Mangrove and Suncoast Watercolor show.

Fun Art Festival Finale Gala

The Battle of the Brushes has begun! I have been paired up with local celebrity, Carlton Hughes. Carlton has no art background, but a strong desire to create a masterpiece and was brave enough to participate in the inaugural event to raise money for the Visual Art Center in Punta Gorda.

Carlton is busy working on the artwork using alcohol inks. I am coaching him along, but keeping my hands off the canvas. The unveiling, silent auction and gala will be fun for all. Come see what Carlton has created and support this wonderful art center.
