My huge triptych…which, for now I will create a web of intrigue by letting remain a secret…
is thrilled to be showing as part of this luscious exhibition of contemporary figurative realism via diptychs and triptychs.
My painting, #me(dusa)too will be part of this historic exhibit of contemporary figurative realism at the one of a kind Wausau Museum of Contemporary Art…where the focus is on figurative realism.
Curated by Museum Director, David Hummer, sponsored by Poets/Artists magazine, I'm thrilled to share wall space with figurative art legends such as Alexandra Tyng, Bo Bartlett, Melinda Borysevicz, and Vincent Desidario and so many more… PTFN 2019 will be a stunner.

Order this beautiful book of some of the finest figurative work being produced today…thrilled to be part of it.
She was featured in the September 2018 issue with a two page spread.
This painting has a lovely history of awards, in 2017 she was awarded Second Place at the Mandel J Show in Beachwood, Ohio, and, in June, she was awarded Best In Show at the 73rd Ohio Annual at the Zanesville Museum of Art!
My portrait of Cleveland's own iconic figurative painter, Shirley Campbell, entitled, "When I grow up I want to be Shirley Campbell,” has entered the permanent collection of the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve. Also archived are my portraits of Marsha Sweet, Lee Heinen, Kathleen McKenna and the late Marilyn Szalay. All were created in 2015 for the Majority Rising Show which I curated for the AAWR with the works of these masters.
I blog about each painting. Shirley, Marsha, Kathleen and Lee.
Thrilled to announce that my painting, Titkos Tesvér (The secret sister who was sent away) was awarded the Ridgewood Art Institute Award at the Catharine Lorillard Wolf 122nd Juried Exhibition at the legendary National Arts Club in NYC in January 2019.
Titkos Tesvér (The secret sister who was sent away) is also among the paintings selected to appear on the
American Women Artists Spring Online Juried Exhibition for the next year.

This is so special because I basically grew up in art hearing about the Salmagundi Club in New York from my Portrait Teacher at the Cleveland Institute of Art, José Cintron. He spoke of it with a reverence for the artistic giants of portraiture who have also been members since it began in 1871. William Merrit Chase, Norman Rockwell, Childe Hassam, N.C. Wyeth, Howard Pyle…even Louis Comfort Tiffany. The Salmagundi Club positioned itself at that lovely crossroads between narrative, representational art and illustration, at a time when that was going out of favor, they carried the torch.
Catharine Lorillard Wolf was a major collector and patron of the arts at the turn of the last century. The CLWAC was established to honor her legacy. Thrilled to announce that I am the newest elected member of this prestigious and selective 122 year old Organization.
After taking First Place in 2017 and then Second Place in 2018, I was excited be asked to jury this fabulous National Show in the historic Bryn Du Mansion in Granville Ohio in 2019.
A resounding success with a jam-packed opening reception,
I had the enormously difficult task of whittling
569 entries down to 100 pieces in the show.
The show is down now, but the whole experience was a pleasure and an honor.
Get on the email list for the Call for Entry next year!
