My First Video Interview

Ok, it’s not really my first video interview, but it is the first one I’m posting here on my website. My friend Juliana Matias picked me for her film making debut. She and her instructor came to my studio and started filming its contents. It is so interesting seeing a familiar environment through someone else’s […]

In the New Year….

Hi all! Happy New Year! (I can still say that, right?) I want to begin by saying thank you to everyone who came to my show on January 10th, the turnout was awesome and the support was incredible. As always, I am grateful you allow me to share my passion for learning and for painting […]

Merry Christmas!

Amid all the commercialism and craziness of the season, don’t forget to give thanks to and for those you love and those who love you back.

Toni Morrison – Women Behaving Badly – Part 1

You know what I love most about this series? I love delving into the lives of the women I get to paint. Many of them, I had heard of, but didn’t really know what they were famous for. Take Toni Morrison, for example. Growing up, I knew that she was ¬†a famous African American Author. […]

Putting the Story Back in History

When I was in school, I did not do well in history class. I mean, I did well enough to pass, but I didn’t get why we needed the course. It was all names and dates of people and places that seemed to have no relevance to my life. Now that I’m older, I see […]

A Response to Bigotry

There has been a lot of horribleness in the news lately. There have been shootings, bombs, vehicular homicides…. The amount of violence, especially in places long considered safe has been overwhelming. The thing that hits us the hardest, though, is the undercurrent of racism and bigotry that has risen to the surface. Many people are […]
