After painting for almost 20 years and working in clay for 10, I was ready to take the plunge into joining a somewhat ‘local’ gallery cooperative in Westerly. For the past 2 years, I have been an artist member of the Artists’ Cooperative Gallery of Westerly. Initially juried into the co-op as a ceramic sculptor, ceramics were my focus for the past 2 years. This year I have decided to dedicate my energies to painting, working to be loose and free in my technique. This is certainly an ongoing journey.
