New Book Coming in May 2021!

New Book Coming in May 2021!

I'm so excited to announce a very special project I’ve been dreaming of for years and have been furiously working on for the past few months. A book! There is so much to tell, and I will share all of the details in the coming weeks, but I just can’t contain my excitement any longer. My book will be a 32-page full-color hardcover book featuring the paintings created for my solo show ‘Abecedarian’ @larkandkey this past fall.



I received the first proof earlier this week and I am over the moon with the color and quality. The book will be available in May 2021. I will be launching a kickstarter in March (I think) to help with the balance of the production costs. In addition to the book itself, there will be a variety of incentives including a new collection of original oil paintings.


The challenge of choosing a proper title. I perused all of the ABC books I could find, in my own collection, on Iris' shelves, in cyber space, hoping they would lead me in the right direction. I liked the idea of using one of the letters and its corresponding text from the book, but which one? The origin of my Joie de Vivre series was the birth of my daughter, after struggling with infertility for five years. The rainbow is where it all began. The light and beauty following a dark and scary storm.

Thank you all for following along in my journey. Your kind words and support mean the world to me. ❤️
