“Art is when you hear a knocking from your soul — and you answer.” ~Terri Guillemets
Fall in Ohio is here and I’m enjoying the skies and waiting for the full colors of autumn. This morning I took a morning walk and caught the sunrise and its reflection in my neighbor’s pond.
What’s new in my world? My year plus of treatments and appointments is over for breast cancer! I’m feeling strong and have energy and an abundance of curly dark hair which is a switch for me. I’m still eating clean and exercising and working on art again-although I never really stopped, I did slow down quite a bit.
Exciting news! I’m a guest artist at Gallery Plus in the West 78th Street Studios (http://www.78thstreetstudios.com/) on the West Side of Cleveland. Come see me and my artwork on the Third Fridays of October (20th) and November (17th). There are many galleries open and so much to see! It’s an honor for me to have a guest wall of art!
Where else can you see my art? I am in a “Cleveland Show” with several other artists at the Avon Lake Public Library through November 2nd. The address is 32649 Electric Blvd Avon Lake OH. Their website is http://alpl.org/ to check on the hours they are open. The library is amazing, the lake is nearby and there are many areas to stop and enjoy the view. Check out the show!
You can always view my art at Stella’s Art Gallery in the Match Works Building in Mentor Ohio. It’s a wonderful location to visit and there is a new restaurant in the same building. We have over 30 local artists with a variety of styles and many different mediums. If you haven’t yet seen the spot of New Day Cleveland you can still view it at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkChAlMOokI&feature=youtu.be
Keep Stella’s Art Gallery on your list of things to see in the Cleveland area. http://www.stellasartgallery.com/ There are new events all the time and new artwork to see.
Also, Moonstruck CLE in Little Italy, Valley Art Center in Chagrin Falls, BAYarts in Bay Village and Gravel Pit in Fairport Harbor carry some of my work.

I’ll leave you with this quote, every one of us can do some good, can be kind to another person, can help someone in need, can offer a smile to one who is discouraged. Even small gestures can make a change. Try it, it might become contagious!
