I will be teaching a workshop "Creating a Still Life with Colored Pencils" June 18 and 19 with Ann Arbor Rec and Ed. This two day workshop teaches you to develop beautiful colors using layering techniques as you learn how to make colored pencil art look like an oil painting.

This Fall Still Life is one of three pieces I am exhibition at Livonia City hall with the Michigan Chapter of the Colored Pencil Society of America. The show is up through April 30.
I used colored pencil and solvent.
This is a poster for the March 10th book launch of "Year of Resistance 2017: Artists Moved to Action". I have a page in the this book. It was created in collaboration between three women's artist organizations in southeastern Michigan.
Here are two new pieces. Twilight Interior is a painting done in acrylic. I enjoy working with brushes and paint very much. I wanted to show the way light illuminated the whole interior and the still life.
Red Boat in a Lake was created as a lesson about drawing water for my students. I was happy with the way it turned out and may exhibit this one in the future. I applied many of layers of colors in order to render the water. The colors were blended with solvents, then I added more color and burnished with white pencils.
