I am pleased to announce I will be participating at Annmarie Garden’s annual 2015 Artsfest from Sept. 19-20. A beautiful arts venue in Solomons, Md., Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center hosts year-round galleries and programming to bolster art and artists. Annmarie Gardens has hosted Artsfest since 1993. Now in its 22nd year, the two-day juried fine arts festival serves as a one-of-a-kind celebration of art and the creative process in the Southern Maryland region.
Artsfest has something fun for everyone of all ages, including “some of the country’s most accomplished artists for a weekend of terrific shopping, great music, and delicious food and drinks. … more than 25 bands and entertainment acts performing on two stages, as well as family activities and programs under the Discovery Tent and in the Zany Zone.” Not to mention, lots of art of all kinds.
I will be in the Murray Art Building with my 3D paper sculpture illustrations and more, so come check out the whole festival and visit me at my booth! Hope to see you soon!

In May, three of my paintings were featured in the Seaside Art Gallery’s 24th International Miniature Art Show. Just this past week, I discovered a video by the Outerbanks Voice featuring reporter Kay Barefoot and Seaside Art Gallery owner, Melanie Smith. A nice focus on the miniature art show, Barefoot and Smith provide an overview of the miniature art show. They even discuss my Junk Drawer paper sculpture and the camera shows detail of my elephant’s ears and Juno the Peacock’s feathers.
Even though it may be a little late, the Outerbanks Voice video gives an overview of the show and the different kinds of art featured, the history of the wonderful Seaside Art Gallery and a great discussion about what miniature art is. For example, did you know the 1/6 rule means a human head in miniature art can’t be larger than a quarter? Check out the video below, and see if you can spot my elephant, peacock and junk drawer!
Here’s the latest on my cone flowers with a little bee. The center of the flowers and the bee are three-dimensional. They are made out of paper and painted in watercolor and gouache.
Here’s my latest project, paper sculpture roses. Notice the third bee in the upper left hand corner!
