Award at WHMA Members Exhibition

I am so thrilled that my colored pencil drawing Elise was announced the Winner of the Edith Burger Award for Artistic Excellence at last night's reception for the Whistler House Museum of Art Members Exhibition! Above is a photo of me by the piece, as well as my wonderful model, my sister, Elise.

I also had an oil painting accepted into the exhibit, Father and Son, pictured above with my other two wonderful models, my husband and son. 

The show is full of amazing artwork in a variety of media, and well worth the visit. I also recommend checking out the rest of the museum. For more information, see
