Solo exhibit: September, 2017 at Well Street Art Company
My next solo is at my home gallery, Well Street Art Company in Fairbanks, Alaska. For this show, I'm shifting gears entirely with some VERY bright colors. Oil bars and some vivid ink drawings will comprise the exhibit.
Dates set for Anchorage Museum Solo Exhibit
Just received word that my solo show at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center is scheduled for October 5, 2018 through January 13, 2019. A long exhibit and a good amount of time to prepare.
May 4, 2016: Exciting news!
I've been awarded a solo exhibition at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center. Show date TBA, (2017 or 2018) as scheduling still needs to be worked out. I'm very excited---as well as anticipating a lot of work and focus in the studio to make this the best collection of work that I can. A great honor---and a prize I've been reaching towards for years!
Inclusion in the All Alaska Biennial 2016
Two paintings accepted in the biggest statewide, juried, traveling exhibit hosted by the Anchorage Museum. "In the Endless Journey of All" (2014) and "Keepers" (2013) will tour with the exhibit to various galleries within the state.

I've added a poster for sale under "Illustration." This is a 14" x 11" visual list called Stuff for Kitties which depicts everything you should have to make your kitty happy. Proceeds from the sale of this poster will be donated in full to Pet Pride, a no-kill feline rescue shelter in Fairbanks, Alaska.
This just in, April 8, 2014
This morning I received notification that I've been accepted for the 2014 Meg Hunt artist residency at the Wrangell Mountains Center in McCarthy, Alaska. This is in the heart of the Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve, the nation's largest unit of the national park system---over 13 million acres. I'll be there for 2 weeks in August painting, drawing, and giving lectures about art and Alaska to visitors and residents.
The abandoned mining towns of McCarthy and Kennicott will be incredibly inspiring, not to mention the ice-capped mountains, the raw terminus of the Kennicott glacier, and the roaring river that emerges from it.
What an honor! I am so excited and thrilled to be there this autumn---the paintings will be EPIC!
A Positive Rejection
Although I wasn't selected to be one of this year's Chilkoot Trail Artist in Residence (www.yukonartscentre.com), I received one of the best rejection emails in memory.
Usually rejection letters let you down kindly but succinctly. This email included the information that I was shortlisted in the final round of selection. They also detailed exactly what they found lacking in my application (which was the same thing I thought I could have done better), and gave me suggestions for my application next year---with big encouragement that they'd really like to see an application from me in 2015.
A rejection, but love the communication. If only more organizations were this forthcoming!
