Pond Farm, Polaroid Transfer with Pastel


Hello! Thanks for visiting my site.  I hope you are well and safe at this challenging time.

Unfortunately due to the pandemic, Open Studio will not be happening in 2020. 

It is fortunate that we live in an age in which we can view art online!

I am sketching every day in my garden, and I wish I could share the peacefulness of my garden and studio

with others. I look forward to a time when this is possible.

Please stay well and safe, enjoy the art on the site, and contact me if you wish using the button at top right.
