Artist’s Statement
Hello! Thank you so much for your interest in my work. I love that I’m able to help out TMA in such a unique way that benefits everyone involved!

If you’ve seen my work, you know that I work small. This is my passion, and at this point, what I’m known for. For this project, I would work in four sizes – a 1.5”x2” print in a 2.5×3.5” frame ($55), a 2”x3” print in a 4×6” frame ($75), a 3”x3” print in a 5”x5” frame ($95), or a 4”x4” print in a 9”x9” frame ($125). I

created six pieces for the Made to Order exhibit in 2020, and it was such a joy. Not only did I have a great time creating the artwork, but to know it meant so much to the consignees – well, that means everything to me. There is nothing like making art that is personal and one-of-a-kind for special people.

Thank you again for your interest. I can’t wait to create a piece just for you!
