It's that time again... bring out the little old spinning tree. This little tree is one of the only things that makes me truly enjoy the Christmas season. When I was little I used to stare at this tree in my Grandmother's den and felt like it was a little bit magical.

Merry everything to all of you!

On a side note, the Hearts in the Dark black cat charity has been going great! If you've been eyeing some prints, now is the time!

Visit the shop to get some.

Hearts in the Dark: A Black Cat Initiative

I'm so happy and proud to announce that starting today you can buy prints in my shop OR in Julia Denos' shop that will benefit local animal shelters. We are calling this effort "Hearts in the Dark", in reference to the plight of the black cat in shelters. Black cats are almost 50% less likely to be adopted than other cats!


Partially because they don't photograph well, because people don't see them as well in a cage, and believe or not, because of superstition. This is in spite of the fact that (I believe) black cats are especially loving, doting and affectionate animals. Anyone who has ever owned a black cat I'm sure would agree.

Julia's prints

Many of you may already know that this subject is dear to my heart... and I have posted about it on numerous occasions.

My prints

I have owned and loved many cats, but one black cat in particular was a special presence in my life.

I've always coveted the curtains in my Grandmother's den, and decided to paint one of her windows. It was fun to just paint, and to not worry about line AT ALL. Line is my constant obsession, and so a little break was nice, even just as an exercise.

I have always been fascinated by windows. I have a collection of photos of every window of every room or studio I've had since I was 18. I will share just a few of my favorites.

the world is wild

Finally ready to share this commission for a bride who wanted a pair of etchings for her groom as a gift. I came up with these etchings that sit next to one another to create one pond scene.

Also just finished up one of my many foxes. There's been a little theme going on over here (along with more goats as well!) This guy is leaping through the brush.

I enjoyed some time this weekend to literally just PAINT. Something I haven't done in a long time. I'll have a little sneak of that as soon as it's ready.

Happy summer rain...

summer news

I'm proud to say that "The Gift"

and The Brave Men Press Coin Library

are now on display in the "Flourish: Alumni Works on Paper" show at MassArt in the Bakalar Gallery until July 9th. It's really a beautiful collection of work, I'm honored to have my work amongst the bounty.

This is also the second exhibition that the Coin Library has been a part of. It was on display at Pace University back in February and March. I'm hoping to get some of these into the hands of rare book libraries coming this fall!

Here is more info

The Gift

I write now from a new little apartment of my own in Somerville, MA. I'm proud that I possibly might have the biggest tree in Somerville right outside my window:

And all my messy little things have found their way home in my new little studio:

I've recently finished a new etching entitled, "The Gift"

This was inspired by the gifts of dead mice my little Mexican kitty brought to me in the fall. Here is a poor little mousie detail:

I hope to have more prints to share soon. Brave Men work has been keeping me busy beyond belief, so I'm working my way up to a little hiatus in order to work more on personal work.
