It’s heartbreaking but, due to coronavirus, I’m officially canceling all of my art shows that are scheduled for the remainder of 2020. I’m also permanently closing my gallery at Towne West Mall in Wichita. I am at high risk, and I just don’t see how I can safely attend large events or be exposed to large numbers of the general public. I’ve been staying at home and isolating since the beginning of March.

When facing adversity, I always like to look for the silver lining. Mine is that by not doing shows or my gallery, I'm able to spend more time in my studio painting. And that's really awesome! Plus, my art is still available for sale online.

If you are one of the people who usually purchases from me at shows and are hesitant to purchase online, please know that every artwork I ship is insured and backed by Etsy’s buyer protection policy. I stand behind every package I send out, and I promise that yours will arrive safely. If it does not, I will replace it. And most of my inventory that is available at shows is available online. If you have trouble finding something on my website, please reach out via email or social media. I usually reply to everyone within a few hours.

And thank you all so much for supporting me and my small art business. It means a lot 💕
