I was fortunate to receive a second two-week artist residence at the Cill Rialaig Project in County Kerry, Ireland. Working in a pre-famine cottage perched along the Atlantic in the middle of rolling green pastures full of sheep is hard to describe. It provides a space to reconnect with nature and disconnect from the world and I started work on two new projects. I'm grateful to have a second stay and hope to return again.

I''m honored to have two of my older figure paintings, Humps and Repose, included in this awesome anthology, Bared from Les Femmes Folles Books. Edited by Laura Madeline Wiseman and Sally Deskins, it celebrates female artists and writers who explore themes and imagery involving breasts and bras.
Another body of work I've been creating on the side is a portrait series of women. It’s an extension of my research, and documents some of the female writers, artists, and creative types of all stripes, who were part of the modernist avant-garde in the first few decades of the twentieth century. The series sheds light on their later years, and I’ve painted them in old age. The exhibition is on view in the campus gallery of University of Cincinnati Clermont College, through March 28, to coincide with Women's History Month. View the portraits here
I have an older painting included in Bared, a group exhibition at the Diamond Gallery in Morgantown, WV.
