Do something inspiring! The tools and utensil series urges just that. Leverage everyday objects in new ways. The metaphors are abundant. Kindness to one’s self greatly benefits others

"Wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness."
~Lucius Annaeus Seneca

Life is hard enough. Here are some practical applications or “tools” to make it a little better. You can find these in almost any home, so put them to use. I have a B.A. in Fine Arts from University at Albany (State University of New York at Albany, SUNYA) and did undergraduate work at U.C. Santa Barbara, Cleveland State University and Berkshire Community College. I also took one year of non-degree graduate work in painting and photography at SUNYA. I continue to take classes and workshops

For the past three and a half years I have been showing my work with the Richmond-West Stockbridge Artist Guild, the Housatonic Valley Art League and at Bagels Too Gallery, Good Purpose Gallery, Adams Community Bank in North Adams, The Kinderhook Group Gallery, Berkshire Humane Society Gallery, Shaker Mill Inn, the Stockbridge Library, Gallery 35 at Stone House Properties, the Welles Gallery, TD Bank in Great Barrington, The Spencertown Academy, Dottie’s Coffee Lounge, Becket Arts Center, JWS Art Store, The Lichtenstein Center, Berkshire Art Association Berkshire Regional Art Guild and the Guild of Berkshire Artists.
