Autumn Art & Fall Fests

Happy Autumn, everyone!  Even though summer is over, the weather (in the NJ area at least) has been gorgeous and perfect for outdoor arts and music fests as well as for venturing out to gallery exhibitions so here’s some October events I’m involved with…

August Art Update; events & new work

Summer is half over…

But that means there’s still half of summer left to enjoy!  And there are many artistic events going on through Autumn that I’m looking forward to participating in.  And, I haven’t been lazy during the hot weather either…I’ve been busy with new fine art commissions and design work and I’ve shared a few of them with you here…

If you’re in the NJ/PA area and love nature and history, then you’ll LOVE the historic D&R Canal Trails that run through both states!  Being a supporter of environmental protection I’m honored to have some of my photographs of these trails on the official D&R Canal website!  Take a look (I’ve also included 2 of the photos above):

I really enjoy doing commissioned work for collectors and have been creating work for people across the US & abroad!  Pen & ink, watercolors and digital collage are some of the mediums I work in and below are two of my newest, completed commissions that are off to their new homes!  Feel free to contact me for information about commissioned work!
