Then I had my first Solo show at http://osteriarossa.com/. I created 11paintings all involving scenes of Grand Rapids. From those paintings, I was selected by Betten Honda to paint a car during ArtPrize.
Wendy Foy was a huge help.

My ArtPrize entry this year is at Women's City Club. http://www.artprize.org/7-hungry-artists/2015/feast I was amazed at how this collaboration turned out. So Proud to be a part of this entry.
I love talking to my students about my experiences as a practicing artist, I hope it inspires them to follow their dreams. I dreamed of being an artist and an art teacher as a child. I am so thankful I get to live out my childhood dream every day.
