Latest news, each day in 2019 January 2019 I am participating in “Fun a day Pittsburgh”. To see what Pittsburgh artists are doing check out  #funadaypittsburgh on Instagram.

Here is my art so far focused on a series of goat paintings for January 2019.  The idea…Resolve to exercise your art muscle this New Year.
Fun a Day challenges participants to create every day of January.

I created two bicycle themed artworks for Pittsburgh’s MS Society fundraiser, 6PM- PM Friday December 7, 2018 at Wigle Wiskey Distillery in Pittsburgh’s Strip District, 2401 Smallman St, Pittsburgh, PA 15222. Cycling-themed cocktails, Blue Sparrow Food Truck and an auction of cycling-themed artwork by Pittsburgh artists.  They  unveiled and auctioning the first-ever Wigle Whiskey cycling jersey, produced locally by Aero Tech Designs. Proceeds benefit the National MS Society, PA Keystone

My most recent solo show ended March 2018 of approximately 40 artworks at Cooper Siegel Community Library. Publicity with images in four articles in  Pittsburgh Post Gazette, City Paper, Fox Chapel Living and the Herald brought many new visitors to the library, and sales were been strong. In Community- Fox Chapel and Shady Ave listed it. When a painting or print sold, the buyer took it home immediately and  new work was hung. I can say that even as art galleries vanish there appears to be very good support within the community for art! I greatly appreciate the publicity and so did Cooper Siegel Community Library.

In 2015 I received a really nice award at Three Rivers Arts Festival for a series of paintings titled “Unscenic?” of mobile homes and trailers from Freyda Spira, Associate Curator of Drawings and Prints at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Read more.

In Spring 2016 the Duquesne Club purchased an archival print of my  drawing “Sixth Avenue Pittsburgh”. Read More.

Art is awesome but income too must come in and to that end Carol takes commissions for Custom House Portraits which you can see examples of here and learn about pricing. One interesting product i sell is an Historic Pictorial Map of Schenley Park in two sizes which I found a black and white drawing of in the 1980s  and added color and text to.  Some other themes in my art work are bicycles, river , and more bicycle with 3 sizes prints available.
