In November 2022 my paintings “Green on Gold” and “Purple on Gold” are on exhibit at Touchstone Gallery. Touchstone is located at 901 New York Ave., NW, Washington, DC 20001. The gallery is open Wednesday through Sunday from 12 to 5 pm.


In November and December 2022 five of my small works—four paintings and one original print—are also on exhibit at Touchstone.











From October 6, 2022 to January 4, 2023 my hand-pulled prints will be in an exhibit with work by Caitlin Gill, and Rick Ruggles at the Takoma Park Community Center, located at 7500 Maple Ave., Takoma Park, MD 20912.






Solo Exhibits in 2021, 2019 and 2017


Exhibit at The Arts Club of Washington, DC

in May 2021


My solo exhibit “Trees: Etchings and Lithographs” at The Arts Club of Washington in the District of Columbia featured hand-pulled prints that celebrate natural arboreal beauty. “Olive Tree, Portugal” was in this exhibit.





“Branching Out: Original Prints” at Touchstone Gallery in May 2019


In 2019 my solo show at Touchstone Gallery included etchings, lithographs, and other types of original prints with an arboreal theme.  “Branching Out: Original Prints” gives a virtual tour through the exhibit. “New England Scene II” was in this exhibit.






“Metallics: Paintings and Prints”

at Touchstone Gallery in 2017


My solo show in February 2017 at Touchstone Gallery featured artwork with copper, silver and gold elements. The prints are etchings, some of which include screenprinting. The paintings were created using embroidery yarn to act as a fine brush. An example is “Purple on Gold.” To see the artwork in this exhibit, go to my artist page on the Touchstone Gallery website.
