Welcome to Pelham Art Festival Online 2021! I invite you to take a moment and visit our show and my virtual booth. I have a number of new paintings posted as well as a feature piece "Harvesting Hope" for our curated part of the show called The Our Planet, Our Future - it will be opening soon. I have included a descriptive piece for each painting because one of the most common questions I get is "what motivated you to paint this image"? If you have any questions please contact me via email/phone or or the using the Contact Artist button on the festival website.

























Most of my art shows have been cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Hopefully the world will heal in the next year and I will be able to see all of you again next spring. My fellow artists and I are playing it month by month. Hopefully by the fall we will be hosting our MYSTERY IN THE PARK  at  the Algonquin Park Visitor`s Centre  Art Show

Hwy 60, Marker 43, Algonquin Park. 

Part of the proceeds of each art sale will go to the FRIENDS OF ALGONQUIN PARK for conservation efforts within the park.
