New Paintings: Biking on the Willard Munger State Trail

On display at the AZ Gallery 308 Prince Street Saint Paul, MN 55101 (651) 224-3757

It was an incredible journey from Saint Paul to Duluth on our Cannondale bikes that we cherish. It was 35 degrees most mornings, but warmed up quickly throughout the day. We were met with such warmth and genuine interest about our trip from the people that live in the towns along the trail, so fun to meet such great people! We also met bikers of all ages who tackle this challenge every year, so inspiring.

We hope to be cycling and exploring together forever!

New Work and Revisions at The AZ through October 11th

These works capture my fascination with light and color. Nature is a kaleidoscope of colors that appear when one really looks closely and sees the reflections in the light. During the summer, I am on my bike traveling to new places every weekend. We just got back from Duluth – traveling on the Willard Munger Trail, a gorgeous trail that leads travelers to Jay Cooke State Park. I am excited to get back into my studio and jump into my pots of paints and find those hidden colors in the wild.

I’m Home!

I had a great time at the Saint Paul Art Crawl and at the Northrup King Building’s Art Attack, but I am also just fine with my paintings coming home where they were born and where they look beautiful! My great friend Mary E told me once, “Always paint what u love, cuz if it doesn’t sell make sure u would be pleased to have it hanging on your wall. I love these paintings, so I am okay with that. I also love the ones that sold and am happy about that, don’t get me wrong! But I welcome these with loving arms. Now to get ready for the holiday show and Winter Carnival……

NKB Art Attack – Day 2



Here hanging out on the third floor of the Northrup King Building outside Studio Pintura’s North Light Studio #350. It is day 2 and there has been a lot of traffic. We are open today until 8pm and Sunday 5-10. On Day 1, great friends came and crossed the mighty Mississippi River to support me and my art. Thanks to Gia, Sally, Amy, Tammy, Jenni, Anna, and of course my constant love, Greg. The rain, sleet, and cold was a tough Friday night sell, but people came out to feast on some creativity. I have to say that I love the artists who inhabit the studios and  am inspired by their works.  It is always fun to be surrounded by those who share your passion and love of the creative life.IMG-4781
