Quite Still...

be quite still and solitary...

I am excited to share that artist and coach Lesley Riley has just released a new book called Quotes Illustrated: 100 Works of Art Inspired by Words.


More than 90 artists were inspired to create a new artwork based on a quote provided by Lesley. The pairing of words and art are lovingly presented on the pages of this book. The contributors are a mix of familiar faces and artists to discover. 

I am happy to say that I am a contributing artist to this book along with many of my friends including Chris Cozen, Lynne Hoppe, Ingrid Dijkers, Marcia Beckett, Darlene Campbell, Patti Edmon, Gina Rossi Armfield, Serena Barton, Patti Monroe-Mohrenweiser, Jill K. Berry, Pam Carriker, Holly Dean, Stacey Merrill, Deborah Guthrie, Theresa Martin, Pat Patingolo, Theresa Wells Stifel, and too many more to name.

My Quote...

Be quite still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you unmasked. It has no choice. It will roll in ecstasy at your feet. Franz Kafka

...inspired my art
