Birdtober 2022


Well, it’s been an exciting time since I returned from MA this past summer dog and house sitting. I hit the ground running on my return and jumped straight into joining the NOTO Arts Center team as their Administrative Assistant. And I love it! I’m also working to assist a local professional chef with his meal based business a few days a week, so to say I’m busy is a bit of an understatement.

As far as art is concerned, I’m currently participating in Birdtober 2022. I’m posting these works as they are completed on my Instagram account (click the Social Media tab above) so you can see them over there. It’s definitely been an education for me despite working at the Omaha Zoo for several years, I’ve had to research some of the birds to figure them out. Campo Flicker anyone?

I’m working on the last of my private commissions for the year, and then I will be taking quite a long break from commissions for a while (about 6 months) to work on some other goals, priorities and education I would like to complete. I will begin working on my wait list for commissions again in May/June 2023 (I’m already booked through summer of next year!).

I’m excited to tell you that I have thrown my hat in the ring again to participate in Roar and Pour 2023. So stay tuned to find out if I’m selected to be paired up with an animal to create art!

I’ve just submitted two artworks to the Morris Gallery in the NOTO Arts Center for their Holiday Traditions show in November 2022. Both artworks will be available for sale.

Wishing you all a happy and healthy holiday season! Best wishes, stay safe, and joyful celebrations to you all. Shine on!
