ArtWorks Now Exhibit

I'm excited to announce that I will be exhibiting a number of my works at the ArtWorks Now Gallery at 4800 Rhode Island Ave, Suite 1, in Hyattsville.

ArtWorks Now's beautiful new building will open on July 15, 2017, and the gallery will open alongside it. You're welcome to join me at the opening of the new building as we celebrate the space. After that, my exhibit, "Chapter Three," will hang through August 28. Please join me on that day to celebrate the show with a closing reception!

The title of my show “Chapter Three” is a direct reference to the three roles I have undertaken during my adult life: housewife, corporate executive and now, artist. As a teen, I always harbored dreams of being an artist, but my interest lay dormant for many years as I spent 13 years running a home, and then transitioned into a career in corporate America. My passion resurfaced in 2003, when I took a sketching class, and since early 2012, I have painted regularly. My story, and my third chapter, shows that if you have a passion percolating in the back of your mind, you should never give up on your dream.

I hope to see you there!
