My work and availability of paintings has not changed as a result of Covid-19.

Some of the events I was scheduled to do have been cancelled, but some are still slated to happen.

I will be showing/selling paintings at every opportunity that is allowed.

In the meantime, I will continue to make my paintings available online.

I'm now offering free shipping of any original painting, or three or more prints.

Curbside pick up for all purchases.

My Minneapolis gallery will also be open as soon at the stay at home order is lifted.

Collectors will have the choice of contact-free or guided tours through the gallery.

I am also still taking commissions and would love to work with you to make a special

painting just for you.


Contact me via email to schedule an appointment for a studio visit or to discuss a commission.
