The Amicable Studios website was created to share my personal work and engage with my local art community. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, I have been teaching virtually and working remotely. It seems more necessary than ever to be open to new, purposeful ways of collaborating. I have recently updated Amicable Studios to include my work in art education and virtual art classes.

If you are interested in my artwork or classes, I hope to hear from you via my contact page on Amicable Studios. If you are an advertising client or photographer hoping to reach me for photo/content consulting, please stop by www.motherimage.com. Please see my bio below. I look forward to hearing from you either way.

Thanks so much!
