In the Community
Before COVID, you could often find me "out & about," doing classes, art fairs and festivals. My work with the community also included grant-funded programs and public art as shown here. L: Aislinn Lewis, Rutland, Mass. Children's Librarian, holds one of my laser-cut painted shapes; R: How they look on the wall.
Due to COVID and its restrictions, my public activity has for the most part gone away. After being fully vaccinated and boosted, I made plans to resume COVID-safe classes where I can, as well as events. However, with the booster's waning effectiveness against the Omicron variant, I may postpone classes listed here. As always, I am continuing to do pet portraits and other custom work. Check back soon for further updates.
