These new paintings are ready to go. I’m ready to release these three happy works. Three cheerful paintings on matte black canvas in square format spring right off the wall.
The summer is winding to a close and I’m looking forward to getting back to regular working hours so I can finish this new series of bold and luminous paintings.
Get notified when the series is complete. Join the list here.

Small works of art are an original gift for bridal attendants. Commission a unique piece for each attendant - choose a palette that features her favorite hues or your wedding colors.
I’ve been busy in the studio making new abstract paintings to bring cheer to your home.
New festive, candy-colored abstract paintings hang on the studio wall. Next I will varnish them with a glossy UV-protective coating.

It’s been quiet around here - too quiet.
Well, I’ve been quiet but I’ve been working up a storm.
I recently got a bottle of Stuart Semple’s Black 2.0. It is one of the blackest blacks and is super duper matte. It looks fantastic against vivid colors and glossy surfaces. I’ve been using it to create designs that remind me of looking through a fence or lattice work.
Look for the next series which will focus on protection and safety.
Social Media is eating my soul. The heartbreaking news releases and selfish squabbling in the comments section is making me ill.
The best way to deal with this is to simply stay away from social media that gets me into trouble - I’m talking to you, Mr. Book and you, Bitchy Blue Birdie.
If you’re looking for me in a social app, you will find me on Instagram where I show you behind the scenes shots of my studio as well as works in progress and finished paintings - THAT is where the online fun is right now.
Please stop by and say “hello”!
Here is a hot-off-the-easel painting.
It’s one of those things that I figured would never work out. But I kept at it and even tried to ruin it - and then after I tried to wreck it, it told me it was done. Oh, such fickle paintings!
Still seeking a title for this abstract piece!
Here’s a peek at my easel. But I also paint on a table, the wall and the floor. I like to have a variety of surfaces at work at once. I’m currently working on six different paintings. This is a smaller painting is 12” x 12” and is on panel. The background is a smooth metallic silver. It will be coated with a shiny varnish when I’m done. Make sure you get on the list to see the finishes pieces first!
I’m very excited to be working on a new series.
Here is a sneak peek of the newest painting I am working on. You can get a sneaky peek of some of the finished pieces I have hanging on the wall of my studio. Get a closer look at those here.
I can give you a tip and let you know that this painting has already changed a bit. Want to see it when it is done? Make sure you get on my list and I’ll let you know! Sign up here.
I love the contrast of the pink and yellow against the bold black areas in this painting.
I’m still working out a name for it, but I’m feeling very attached to a name related to beach umbrellas. Add this to your collection. Buy it here.
I’ve been indulging in vibrant candy colors in celebration of the coming spring.
The newest paintings I am working on feature vibrant oranges, lighthearted greens and sweet links and yellow.

It was a happy homecoming as I returned my paintings from Darker Joys back into the studio. I’m especially fond of a newer piece, “Head of Honey”. This is an 18” x 24” painting that packs a lot of power in it’s mid-sized canvas.
It took so long to finish this one. I had almost given up on it but worked the many layers until it came to life.
Everyone has been going absolutely bananas for gallery wall layouts. Some people like to put tiny pops of color on the wall. I have a swarm of itty bitty paintings that will give you one little pop or grouped together to make a fairly decent sized BANG.
Who doesn’t love candy and kittens?
Who doesn't love candy or kittens? This is painting about some of my favorite things - puppies will be up next, I'm sure.
Candy and Kittens is a playful abstract painting of "candyful" colors peeking through a maze of white. This abstract painting features a range of springtime colors such as light green, pink, gentle orange and sweet pinks. Playful kittenish elements add to the fun of this painting. The sides are painted black and I’ve already wired it so you pop this one right one the wall as soon as you get it home.
What are your favorite things?
Have you got a large space to fill right away? Did you know that you can rent art? Renting art is a fantastic option when you have large walls to fill or if you are just kind of fickle.
The Cambridge Art Association offers an art rental program to corporations. My artwork is in their library of available works for rent. Parades and Popsicles is going off to spend the next six months in a local business. It will be back at the end of the year. If you want to know when it will be back, sign up for my list so you can be the first to know when it is back in the studio.
Join us Thursday, March 21, 7-8:30pm for our Darker Joys workshop to spend the afternoon decorating a large triple layer “cake” with acrylic paint and glitter using traditional cake decorating tools. Katie Lane will demonstrate her mad mixed media skills (she uses cake decorating equipment in her daily practice, along with glitter and fluorescent paints). Guests will participate in the decorating process and will be encouraged to release their inhibitions and let their inner children out. This event will be a fun and hedonistic escape from our daily stressful lives.
