I’m honored to be in a group art show at one of my favorite places in Portland—Powell’s Books. The show, entitled “Edges,” includes work from seven Portland artists working in a variety of mediums, from found object assemblage to collage to painting. The show will be up till the end of November. Check it out while you’re there loading up on holiday gifts. The four collages on the right are mine. Enjoy!
Join me for the 3rd Annual Studio Holiday Pop-Up. Each year I include other makers for a unique shopping experience. All local, all handmade goods. Shop jewelry, paintings and organic chocolate candy.
Meet artist Consu Tolosa whose tiny personita paintings on reclaimed wood make for a joyful gift.
Oregon Bark‘s Anne Smith makes all-organic peanut butter flake candy bars and Hazel Jones, candied hazelnut butter and rosemary candy bars. She’ll have gift packs and samples on hand.
Avoid the crowds, enjoy some refreshments and give the gift of handmade.
Saturday, December 2 from 11 am–5 pm.

Portland is the city of roses, and so each June these flowers (and more) are celebrated via a number of activities, one of which is the Dragon Boat Race.
Portland artist Alea Bone created an art exhibition called “Fire on the Water” as a celebration of the dragon boat races. I’m honored to be one of the 75 invited artists to show a piece (a perk of being in the same art club). This art exhibition is an official Rose Festival event. You can get a sampling of the work on the Fire on the Water Facebook page.
This is my submission. I wanted to capture in an abstract way what I imagine dragon boat racing to feel like. This is acrylic and pencil on wood.
The opening reception is June 4 and the show will be up for one month.
Date: June 4 | Time: 5–8 pm | Location: Portland’5 Center for the Arts, 1111 SW Broadway, Hatfield Hall.
Update: I was happy to arrive to the opening reception and find that my painting sold. Thank you whoever you are!
