Mixed Media Artist


I'm so honored to be a part of the Bayou City Art Festival Downtown in Houston this fall. The Art Colony Association has done an outstanding job promoting me as the Featured Artist and engaging the city of Houston with information about the upcoming show and its many, many talented artists. The education and promotion provided by the Bayou City Art Festival team to the general public is vital to the success of the show, and this team is at the top of their game, which is a win, win for everyone!
