Studio move

I am of mixed emotions to share that at the turn of the new year 2021, I will be packing up my Hartford studio of 6 years and heading south to set up a home studio in a small village along the Connecticut River. Please look forward to updates from the new studio coming soon in 2021. I am confident that new environs will spark ideas for new paintings, although I am already nostalgic thinking upon all of the great inspiration I found living in the capital city. 
 

Artists Respond Grant Recipient

I am so happy to announce that my submission to the Connecticut Office of the Arts/New England Foundation for the Arts call for artists has been accepted. My proposal "Art in Your Backyard" is a project that I will complete this summer in partnership with my father, a lifelong hobbyist painter. Our goal is to encourage the general public of all ages that painting can be a meaningful activity for calming the mind and raising our spirit in these difficult times of the COVID19 crises. We will each create a painting in my parents backyard, and create a small instructional video to discuss our artistic choices and the impact of them. Our goal is to share this video with the general public as well as partners at a local senior center and Veterans Affairs office.

PROPOSAL: The Connecticut Office of the Arts recognizes that artists help us through challenging times and is committed to investing in artists' ability to provide respite through inspiration, connection and education.  The Connecticut Artists Respond Grant Program provides funding to artists and teaching artists to support the creation and presentation of free and accessible on-line arts-based experiences, learning opportunities and services to audiences across Connecticut - and beyond - using the World Wide Web
