Today June 1, 2015 marks the 750th anniversary since the birth of poet Dante Alighieri in Florence, Italy!
Dante's The Inferno (and particulary the John Ciardi translation above) has been a source of inspiration in my work.

Excited to share that I am now featured on the Spanish site Minimae! Their mission is to bring quality art from around the world to buyers, along with a little knowledge about the artists' homes and backgrounds.
Please check out their beautiful site and read about their other artists as well! Thanks to Pepe Gomez Larraz for including me in Minimae's mission!
I stopped by Fairmont State University recently to give a Drawing from Life Demonstration. At the instructor's request, we worked on loosening up and drawing expressively. The students were great, and I had a blast working with them!
Thanks to the drawing instructor Jennifer Boggess for the invitation!
