Silver Linings:

Now available for purchase from the Our State Store

Released in October 2019, this book is a collection of 35 essays written by Our State Magazine's Editor in Chief, Elizabeth Hudson, and is illustrated with 37 of my original watercolor paintings. Elizabeth's stories are touching, amusing, and reflect both the large and small moments that make up a life. It is my pleasure to help bring her stories to life with my artwork.

Note to my long-term followers-
If you follow my art and show schedule, then you have probably noticed that I have drastically cut back on art and craft festivals. I love doing festivals, but as I get into more juried exhibitions, and since I have started teaching, I have to select where to put my time and energies carefully. Art and craft festivals are an area that I have decided to put less work into; these decisions are tough, but after having 2 shows bust due to weather conditions last year, and other such unpredictable issues with outdoor shows, this decision makes sense for me and my family. I hope to continue seeing you at other events, which I will always post here! Thanks as always for your continued support.
