Hi everyone! It has been AGES since I’ve written to you here. I will admit that I had a bit of a writing slump this past year. I had a hard time putting words together. But I am back now and I have some things I am excited to tell you about! For now, I […]
The capoeira painting “Race Brasileira” is no longer available. If you have been coveting other pieces from that series, I suggest you make some moves. Folks are starting to stake their claims. There are ten paintings left. You can find them here on the website.
Join us on First Friday for Helikon Gallery and Studio’s open house. The artist studios will be open to the public, so you can see where the magic happens. Here’s a sampling of what you will find.
Good morning all! I thought I’d share with you some pieces I no longer have because I sold them last night. If your favorite is not on this list, come see me at Mini Comic Con at the Sam Gary Branch Library. I will be there today from 10am to 4pm.

Katherine Johnson was a computer for NASA, back when it was a job description, not a machine. She and a number of other […]
I may or may not be done with this painting, but I’ve been sitting on it for two weeks now, so I’m showing it to you. If you have any suggestions for how I could make it better, I’m all ears. Who was she? Shirley Chisholm was an American politician, educator and author who […]
Who was she? Hedy Lamarr was an Austrian actress who became an Hollywood film star from the 1930s to 1950s. What did she do? Often cast at the sexy starlet with very few lines, Lamarr became bored with her acting roles, so she turned to invention to keep her mind occupied. She began with an […]
Hey all. I want to let you in on a little secret. For the past year I have been brainstorming and researching for a project that, I believe, will be the most meaningful body of work I have created to date. The show will be called “Women Behaving Badly – Because Well Behaved Women Seldom […]
