Two new images added to the my collection of framed ceramic art tiles. These two tiles were created with paintings that I made about 2 years ago. I had a special request for prints of these paintings and I thought they were make great tiles. The bright red and orange landscape coupled with the dark purple and turquoise highlights look great in the stained cherrywood frame.
These small format artworks would look great in a small space needing a burst of color. They are ideal for the wall, or even as a desk or tabletop (with included dowel-rod for easel display). The tile is heat and waterproof if you should like to use the artwork as a trivet or hot pad.

Thank you to Dan Gross for the mention in his "Yo! Features" column of the Philly Daily News today. Dan was kind enough to let his readers know about my artwork being used on FOX's "Past Life" as well as to promote the contest : Spot the Art, Win the Print.
Looking forward to Thursday's episode on FOX! So far, two prints have been spotted! (Congrats Lydia and Christina!)

Just a quick note to remind folks that the artist opening reception at Kol Ami was canceled due to the snow. They may try to schedule a closing reception, but I do not know any details yet. The paintings are on display and will remain on display until the end of February.
I apologize to those who may have made the trip out to Elkins Park for the reception. The event organizers decided to cancel all weekend events given the snow and icy roads.

In October 2009, The Eye Institute hosted its Third Annual Looking Out for Kids Fundraiser at Hafter Student Center on the campus of Salus University. I was honored to be one of a handful of local artisans selected to participate in the event. In addition to the silent auction, local artisans sold items to help provide eyecare services and glasses to uninsured, and under-insured, children in the Philadelphia area. It was a great event with wonderful food, music and auction items all benefitting a great cause. I look forward to participating again if invited.
Here is an updated page with pictures and more information about the night's event. If you view the slideshow, you'll see a couple of pictures where my artwork is visible in the background.
