This post was originally posted in January of 2008 and I feel it needs an update: I was recently contacted by a person who claimed to have a client interested in purchasing one of my paintings. He implied that he was an art broker. We negotiated price and at first I was excited that someone [...]
This time last year my dream came true. I was accepted as an Artist in Residence at BaCA in Pompano Beach. The art center was a city project I was following very closely. For years, North Broward had very little in the way of art or culture. I was very excited to hear that Pompano [...]
BaCa, Bailey Contemporary Arts is located in Pompano Beach and in addition to galleries on the first floor, they offer artist studio spaces on the second floor. As a resident of Pompano Beach I had hoped to someday have a studio there. As of August 1st, I do! I am now an Artist in Residence [...]
I recently received an email from Pinterest with pins I might like and noticed that an old friend's photography was among the pins. I knew that in the last ten years his art photography has received critical acclaim. So I googled him and was shocked to learn of his passing in 2013. Saul Leiter was [...]
Before moving to South Florida I lived in New York City for 16 years. I was an art director in the advertising business and my mentor was Jane Trahey, the ad maven that paved the way for all women in the ad biz. She first hired me to work at her ad agency, Trahey Advertising. [...]
The Pompano Beach CRA is having a Grand Re-Opening of the East Village & Beach and I have been invited to exhibit my Heart & Soul series during this event. The art portion of this event is called Art Hall at the Beach. The art tents will be located in the parking spaces in the [...]
This past weekend I participated in "Nude Nite", an annual event in Tampa, Florida. They transformed a 26,000 sq ft warehouse into an exotic art event. My painting "Joyful Dancer" was selected by a jury and was among 100 works of art from artists nationwide. The event was spectacular...not just an art event but a [...]
UPDATE: The painting event last weekend at the Miami Home Design and Remodeling Show was very successful. I sold a few prints as well as a few "Art in Hand" decks. But the best part was talking with the art lovers that stopped by to ask questions about my process. I did so much talking [...]
A lot has happened this summer. The Art in Hand cards shipped and that has brought a lot of attention. Most recently I was in the Sun Sentinel for my part in those cards. I was very pleased that not only the Sun Sentinel found it an interesting project but that a few web sites [...]
A unique deck of playing cards showcasing the wide range of extraordinary artistic talent found throughout the USA. Art in Hand produced a deck called the United States Project and I was selected to represent Florida. Along with 53 other artists we produced a deck that celebrates and showcases the collective talents found within our [...]
A Complete Deck of Playing Cards, Designed by American Artists Not your average deck of cards....each card in this unique deck (Art in Hand, The U.S.A. Project) is designed by an artist from each state as well as D.C., Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. The U.S.A. deck is printed in the U.S.A. [...]
I'm a little late getting this post written. Art Wynwood was over a week ago but it's still on my mind. For the most part I was not impressed. Much of the art was recycled from Art Miami which was not that long ago. So two things excited me. First I saw Andy Warhol's Judy [...]

Graduates of the Broward Cultural Division's "Artists as Entrepreneurs Insitute" program had their work on display at Gallery 6 located in the downtown Fort Lauderdale branch of the Broward County Library. Exhibition runs through February 23rd.
You don't have to be Rockefeller to collect art. He was a postal clerk and she was a librarian. Of modest means but they managed to build a vast collection of contemporary art. Their story is incredible. They lived on Dorothy's salary and used Herb's salary to buy art.
Last year I participated in the Artist as Entrepreneur Institute that is generously presented by Broward County Cultural Division. I highly recommend this program for all local artists. The next session starts next Saturday, June 6th. Click here for more information.
