The Greene Atelier
at·el·ier /ˌadlˈyā/ noun a workshop or studio, especially one used by an artist or designer
On display now at the Lopez Community Center. And I’ll have another piece in the next show, opening June 9th.
I mounted this on wood because I didn’t like the frame and painted it a little more. It will pair with the box, which still isn’t complete, there are some changes I wanted to make.
I’ve been really busy doing volunteer work with the Lopez Artist Guild, getting ready for the studio tour!! That will be labor day weekend. I’ll update with more information when the brochure releases.
I was commissioned to do the standing signs for the farmers market. They are ~2×4′ with latex paint. That will be Saturdays starting this weekend! I think I might skip markets this year to focus on my work and the tour.
A very busy spring, here are a few things. More coming and I think my website will need a makeover soon.

2023 Almost Spring
An update with the final painting for “Memories From Life”.
I have some new small works at the Lopez Artist Guild spring show. It opens this Friday at the Lopez Community Center 5:00-6:30 PM.
I did not have time to get photos before drop off, but I will get some soon.
2023 Deep Winter Update
I joined the Lopez Artist Guild and we have a group show up at the Lopez Community Center right now. Themed, “For the Love of Life”
The next opening will be March 17th, at the Lopez Community Center 5:00-6:30 PM. Themed, “Spring is Coming”
I’ve also joined the San Juan Islands Art Museum Artist Registery. I’m looking forward to the group show at the end of the year.
And I’ve been working on this commission for a bit (and some other projects), it’s very large.
It’s a little warped in the photo due to the size, when it’s finished I’ll be taking it to a bigger, brighter space for better shots before I send it off.
Autumn 2022 Update
Adjusting back to real life! I have a lot of projects coming up and a long winter!
I am teaching some upcoming local classes at the Lopez Island Library and San Juan Islands Art Museum.
I’ll also be participating in the Lopez Holiday Bazaar. I have new prints of “In Silence” available for sale, lino prints and cards, a few painted boxes are still available and I made Lopez sea glass lockets inspired by my time in Hawaii. My booth will be affordable works (under 100USD) and proceeds will help our community.

End of Summer Update
I finished my first larger summer work and then the winds took me elsewhere.
I participated in a juried art, maker and music festival on Lopez Island. I taught color theory and lino printmaking workshops at the Lopez library. I started teaching paint nights at the San Juan Museum. Then, I was getting ready for Full Bloom, a juried maker exhibit at Pelindaba lavender farm on San Juan Island.
I decided to run new prints, second editions, cards and small works for the rest of my summer in preparation. All between wedding planning!! However, an incident resulted in me not making it to the festival. The Lopez Island Studio Tours are September 5th and 6th. I was waiting until next year to participate but now I’m trying to hop on or do a pop up event to salvage my time. I hope to see you then!
I’m going to be working on three large paintings this summer and teaching local art classes. I also have a stack of unfinished lino work I hope to attend to. I have exciting life events coming up, making for a very busy summer!
