This Piece Hosted By Village Toy Shoppe


Hamster Funeral (36″x48″, 2017), is a mixed-media work on plaster panel. This piece is indicative of textures and themes explored in my work. I am currently experimenting with ways to develop texture in acrylic paint for the “Outside the White Cube” exhibition!

Shad’Toberfest Canceled

As you may have heard, Lambertville was devastated by flooding from Ida.
We decided to cancel Shad’Tober. The decision was not reached lightly. However, we could not burden the already stressed infrastructure of the City. The festival brings thousands of visitors to Lambertville and that burden would not help our City right now. The need in Lambertville is great with over half the homes in the City affected by Hurricane Ida’s unprecedented flooding. There are some people that will spend a year getting their house back to a livable condition and some who will never return to their beloved homes because of the severe damage they sustained. In light of this tragedy, we are working on a fundraiser to benefit those flood victims hit hardest by
Hurricane Ida. Stay tuned for details.
