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 paintings were created using embroidery yarn to act as a fine brush. The prints are etchings, some of which include screenprinting. An example is “Grass Bouquet VI.” To see the artwork in this exhibit, go to my artist page on the Touchstone Gallery website.
