What’s Coming in 2019


52 Card Pick Up Art

This year I’ll be doing 52 mini paintings on playing cards. 

Valentine’s Day Pet Portrait Commissions

I’ll be opening up the first of only 3 commission opportunities for 2019  in just a few weeks.

More info coming soon. 

Tech Training for Artists
Webinar Series

The largest project I’ll be launching this year is my Webinar series for artists who want to learn how to get their art online.  Details will be coming in February. 

Poetry & Art Collaboration

I have recently began a collaboration with a writer I met through a poetry website. Her name is Lesley Patterson and she wrote a poem for children to teach them about love and respect for animals. Her poem “Always Love Your Pet, No Matter How Old They Get”  will be our first poetry & art project. If you are interested in reading the poem now, you can visit https://familyfriendpoems.com/poem/118452.

I will be publishing the Poetry & Art Project in our next community update!

Oh yeah, I paint too…

Painting Projects

For 2019, I’m going to continue my “Urban Scenes with Animals” series by completing four new paintings this year. 

Other painting projects include pastel painting classes with Lydia Pottoff in January, Urban Sketching with the Boulder Urban Sketchers (and my pal Lisa Larsen), daily doodling, and painting my way through my huge folder of photographs titled “Art Projects.”

Longmont Artists’ Guild Member
Art Show & Gift Show Sale
June 7-9th

Every year, my art guild does an art show & gift shop sale in June at the Boulder County Fairgrounds. You might recall, this is the same show my husband Richard won “Best of Show” last year with his photograph titled “Workbench.” I also received 3rd place with my very first pastel painting entry. We hope to repeat our successes this time around! 

My online shop is now OPEN! Whoot! And some FAQ’s

Oh happy dance! I’m really excited to announce to you that my online shop is open! In my shop you’ll find the 2019 calendar, original oil paintings, canvas prints of some of my popular artwork and photography canvas prints as well!

Here’s the thing about my shop….

Many of the items in my shop are only available for a limited time. For example, due to limited supplies, the 2019 calendar is only available through next Monday, November 26th! The canvas prints and photography will be available through December 15th. 

But don’t worry, I’ll keep adding great things to the shop all the time. Like note cards!

Over the last 24 hours, I’ve received a few questions from our art community about my new shop and specifically about the calendar (only available until Monday, November 26th!)


I thought I’d take a moment to answer to most common questions I’ve received right here in one place:

What size is the calendar?
It’s BIG! Calendar dimensions 14.5″ wide by 23″ tall when open.

If I didn’t get a chance to buy the calendar on Sunday, about how much is shipping?
Shipping costs are around $7. I always ship priority mail.

I’d like to give this as a gift, can you ship it somewhere else?
Yes! Just reply to your order confirmation to let me know you’d like your order shipped to another address. Please note this is only for calendars and original art. All prints are fulfilled by CGProPrints and you will have to complete your order through their process. 

CLICK HERE to get yours now before they’re all gone!

When will I receive my purchase?
For calendars and original artwork, I typically ship between 3-7 days after your order. I always ship USPS Priority Mail. You will receive a shipping conformation when your purchase ships! When you order a print through CGProPrints, they will notify you of the projected delivery date at check out. 

Who is CGProPrints?
CGProPrints is a local Longmont company. They specialize in canvas prints, metal prints and more! They manufacture the print right here in Colorado and can ship worldwide.

Yes! I always want my customers to be happy with their purchase. Just send me a note and I will do what I can to make things right for you. P.S. If you ordered a canvas print, there will be instructions in your shipment about returns. Because this type of order is not fulfilled by me, I have little control over the process.
