This new year brings many good things including progress on my two original artworks commissioned by and in the public art collection of the Metropolitan Airports Commission, Minneapolis, MN. These mosaics were translated from two of my paintings and fabricated in Italy near Venice by Travisanutto and Miotto Mosaic Art Studios. I’m excited for the upcoming installation and completion of these works which is scheduled for late February!
I’m sad I wasn’t able to visit the Italian Studio to connect with my colleagues and witness the progress firsthand, but I look forward to the next opportunity to do so! Know any public buildings that need a brightly colored mosaic? Send me a message!
Painting featured in Savannah Magazine Airport
One of my artworks recently appeared in Savannah Magazine . The work entitled “Lake Superior II” was created in 2012 for a private collector. I enjoy seeing that it has found its place in the kitchen of this beautiful home! You can read the full article entitled “Sweet Harmony” here.
Redleaf Center Commission
This is a work in progress created for the Redleaf Center for Family Healing, which offers mental health and parenting support for families. Nash Frame is dividing my paintings into 500 smaller 6″ x 6″ works and attaching grommets in them so that clients and families can share messages of kindness in this piece called Gratitude. The work will be 8′ x 4′ when completed and assembled.
Gratitude for the Walker staff
As an artist and board member of the Walker Art Center, I wanted to express gratitude to those who are working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure the Walker remains open and safe for visitors and patrons. I distributed these markers and notebooks to 50 staff members as a token of my appreciation and to acknowledge the importance of the work they are doing.
