I am pleased to announce that Allen and I will once again welcome visitors to our studio during the 9th Annual HWY 62 ART TOURS. We are the first weekend October 23 and 24 from 9-5. I have begun work on several new series and am excited about where they are leading me. If you can’t wait until the tours, I have art at True World Gallery in Joshua Tree, CA, Woods in the Desert Art Gallery in Joshua Tree, CA, 29 Palms Creative Center in Twentynine Palms, CA and the Glass Outhouse Gallery in Wonder Valley, CA. If you are local you can pick up a program at any SunRunner distribution point, and/or the Morongo Basin Cultural Arts Council Office in Joshua Tree and if you are from out of the area you can order one online or our Limited Edition Collector Portfolio which includes a CD with tracks from all the favorite Hwy 62 Musicians at www.hwy62arttours.com

Back from a road trip and trying to get the creative juices flowing again. I have two northern california shops/galleries that would like to show my work and I need start “making stuff”. Picked up lots of lovely objects along the way that are just begging to be reborn. Old photographs without a story. Discarded books without a final chapter. Castoffs without purpose. I am inspired to find what once was lost and give it a home in my art. And so it begins……………….
Found a set of discarded Walter Scott volumes on the side of the road in Los Osos, California while walking with Courtney and Don Carlos. The covers were beginning to disintegrate in the ocean air and the pages were brittle with age. The soft muted colors whispered to me, “take us all”, I took two.
