Entering juried exhibits is one of many ways I like to expose new audiences to my artwork! Entering a themed exhibit is uncommon for me so when Live an Artful Life Gallery of The Plains, VA put out the call for entries for their “Scale” exhibit, I was tickled to have pieces underway that met… Read more »

This painting is one of the largest Acrylic Layers… Read more »
“In the Shadows” is a monochromatic Acrylic Layers and Collage painting I did of the deer I see outside of my window. They are so well camouflaged that I depend on my peripheral vision to detect their movement before I can actually see them among the trees.

2013 was a very exciting year for me and my art! Last year, 2012, saw the re-establishment of my art business, Ballyryan Studios, as an LLC which laid the foundation.
