A New Studio
Like many businesses, we remained closed over the last couple of years, and I needed to think of new ways to share my art and stories. Much has changed, and I have made the difficult decision not to reopen the gallery. But I am excited to share my new artist’s path with you below.
During the winter of 2020, I was hibernating in the gallery studio working on a large painting that now hangs in the new Bath Township Library. The painting is full of many whimsical creatures I have painted over the years, plus a few new ones. The process of creating that painting inspired me to continue drawing and writing about these characters and their lives in my backyard pond. I call this fictional world Pinky’s Pond, as it is told in the voice of pinky the frog.
I have always intended to write these characters into children’s books, and I am thrilled to tell you that my dream is starting to take shape!
I now work from my home studio, surrounded by the woods, pond, and creatures that inspire me. I am very excited about this new project and eager to get feedback from the art-loving community about the stories and images I’ve been dreaming up these last two and half years.
Hear it straight from Pinky
So, this fall, I will be turning the newsletter into a “digital storybook.” You will receive stories and artwork from Pinky’s Pond as we develop them into story books. There may even occasionally be free downloads to share featuring the characters, like coloring pages, bookmarks, or games. We will be sharing on social media and we are working on a new website featuring the characters! If you are not already on Pinky’s friends list please hop on over to our contact page.
Thank you again for your support. We had so much fun with the gallery and will always cherish our memories of sharing art and community with you.
I wish you all good health and joy.
