The 14th Annual Roslindale Open Studios will be Saturday & Sunday, October 20th & 21st, 2018 from 11:00am to 5:00pm. This will be my 7th year participating in my home studio, which is listed as site #17 on this year’s map.
This has been a year of transition for me. It seems I’ve focused more on the healing arts than the visual arts. Most recently, I’ve dabbled in the art of craft and home improvement and explored the art of teaching art. I created a course called “Art Without Anxiety” to teach at an LGBT summer camp for adults, and realized that just about everyone has some sort of “artistic wounding” from childhood, some so damaging that they’ve completely abandoned their innate artistic selves. It was quite rewarding to watch people explore the fun of art and experience the process of creating rather than focusing on a particular end product……sort of like life, it’s about the journey, not the destination. I discovered that not only can I teach, but that I’m good at it and I loved it.
I look forward to welcoming my family, friends, and my fellow Roslindalians into my studio again this year. Don’t forget to stop by my neighbors studio a few doors down from me. Be well and have a happy fall.
The 13th Annual Roslindale Open Studios will be Saturday & Sunday, October 21st & 22nd, 2017 from 11:00am to 5:00pm. This will be my 6th year participating in my home studio, which is listed as site #15 on this year’s map.
Once again, I need to remember how to update my website with photos of my new work. I’m still exploring my “Looking Into Darkness” series, as well as seascapes, but I found myself pulled more towards etching and printmaking this year.
Every fall I look forward to welcoming folks into my studio, showing my art, talking about process, and sharing a cup of hot cider with family, friends, and my fellow Roslindalians.
The 12th Annual Roslindale Open Studios is in October this year. The dates are Saturday & Sunday, October 22nd & 23rd, 2016 from 11:00am to 5:00pm. This will be my 5th year participating in my home studio listed as S10 on this year’s map.
In addition to experimenting with wood block prints, seascapes, and the occasional self-portrait, I’ve continued my abstract exploration into emotion, energy, and empty space – “Looking Into Darkness.” I’ll be posting photos of my new body of work for this year as soon as I remember how to create a new page and upload it. Stay tuned.
I look forward to seeing everyone again this year!
The 11th Annual Roslindale Open Studios will be held on Saturday & Sunday, November 7th & 8th, 2015 from 11:00am to 5:00pm and I will be participating again this year in my home studio.

The 10TH Annual Roslindale Open Studios will be held on Saturday & Sunday, November 1st & 2nd, 2014 from 11:00am to 5:00pm and I will be participating again this year in my home studio. On view this year will be new paintings and prints including landscapes, waterscapes, and abstracts.

The 9th Annual Roslindale Open Studios will be held on Saturday & Sunday, November 2nd & 3rd, 2013 from 11:00am to 5:00pm and I will be participating again this year in my home studio. In addition to new paintings and prints on exhibit, for sale will be greeting cards of select paintings, as well as hand-printed woodblock greeting cards. New to the Roslindale Open Studios this year is the introduction of a shuttle to take visitors throughout the neighborhoods for easier access to all the home studio sites. The shuttle will run every 20 minutes and the route passes within a block of all home studios. Be sure to pick up a booklet with a map of the studios/sites or download one on the Roslindale Open Studio website.
Greetings & Happy Spring!
I’m overjoyed to announce SPRING! SPRANG! SPRUNG!, an exhibit of paintings from my continuing floral series are currently on view at Fornax Bakery in Roslindale Village. There are many new works from the last several months that I’m really excited about and thrilled to be exhibiting this spring. If you find yourself in the area, please stop by the bakery and see how awesome everything looks hung on Fornax’s marvelous red wall. The exhibit will be up from April 1st until the end of May.
Iris – 2013

Fornax Bakery is located at 27 Corinth Street in the heart of Roslindale Village. Their hours are Monday through Friday 7am to 7pm, and Saturday & Sunday from 8am to 6pm. Their website address is: www.fornaxbread.com
When you stop by, consider staying for lunch or coffee & a snack. If you’ve never had the opportunity to experience Fornax before, you absolutely must try their bread! My favorites are the multigrain boule, sourdough boule, rye boule, and the seeded boule. They also have a ton of other popular bread options and delicious baked goods, sandwiches, soups & salads. If you like oatmeal cookies, Fornax’s are wonderful and not to be missed.
Best wishes to all for a happy & peaceful 2013!
