Portfolio

I am currently working on a portfolio of Unconventional Woman Portraits for the Winter Exhibitions at the Quinlan Center opening in December. This will be the first public showing of these narrative paintings as a group exhibit. Most paintings will be accompanied by sculptures or assemblages.
