I am delighted & honored to have been invited to participate in Duane Reed Gallery's 2022 Small Works Invitational: a new exhibition inspired by the wealth of talent working in the St. Louis regional area. The show welcomes over 60 artists each interpreting one simple prompt: work fitting within a 14” x 14” square. Invited artists range from up-and-coming talent to well-established experts deep into their career. En masse, the group represents works in hundreds of public and private collections worldwide. 

Among this stellar lineup of artists, you'll find the latest small works from my "Refuvescence" mixed media series. Watch my video to get an up close preview of work from this show.
