My exhibition, Water Dance, was scheduled to run from March 2 – April 30 at Sacandaga Valley Arts Network’s gallery in Northville, NY. However, it ended after only two weeks due to the Covid-19 pandemic – just prior to when the Meet the Artist Reception would have taken place.

So welcome to my virtual Water Dance exhibition! All works are digital photographs printed on professional, archival papers in limited editions of 25. I painted some of the frames by hand with some lovely, metallic catch-lights. All pieces are for sale. If you are interested in purchasing any, please email me. I hope you will enjoy viewing this virtual exhibition.
