Access Hollywood

I was a guest on Access Hollywood today! Here’s picture of host Mario Lopez showing off the dryer lint piece I did for him. You should see his expression when it was uncovered!

Art of the State

The State Museum of Pennsylvania has an annual show where the highlight artists in the state. This was my first year applying. Out of over 2000 entries, they chose 100 and my piece “Winter” was one of them! Today was the opening, and I was there to meet the other artists and art fans! It will be there through the end of the year, so if you get out to Harrisburg, it’s the big museum right next to the capitol building!

Here’s a link to a gallery of all the artwork.

Here’s the link to all the artists with their resume and statements.

Here are some pictures of me at the gallery, talking to people about my artwork, and relaxing with some brunch across the street from the museum!


Here’s the video of me receiving the Courage Award from the American Cancer Society during a local telethon recently. (My husband Michael A. Ventrella is with me!)

Interview on local television

This weekend, I’ll be receiving a “Courage Award” from the American Cancer Society during their annual local telethon for my work in inspiring other cancer patients to move on with their lives after treatment. Here I am being interviewed on local channel 13!

New Museum Showing

I just received notice that my piece “Winter” has been accepted for a show at the State Museum in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.  According to my acceptance letter, 2,200 works were considered and 104 were chosen.

The show’s reception will be on September 26 and will run through January.  I’ll announce more on my Facebook page as the date gets closer!

Thank you for the lint!
