Drain Painting 

This fall I  was part of a Paint the Drain pilot project for the St. Louis Park Friends of the Arts. Working in tandem with another local artist,  Melanie and I painted drains near Aquilla Elementary in St Louis Park, MN to raise awareness of the importance of keeping storm drains free of debris. Enjoy this short (3 minute) video by Gary Bingner. Hold Tight Video.

Pianos On Parade

Pianos on Parade & Keys for Kids

 I was delighted to be invited by St Louis Park, Friends of the Arts: Fota to paint this beautiful old piano. Once complete, the piano toured the community for others to enjoy. This was a fun project. If you get the chance, say yes! This wonderful video, like all of the videos on my site are created by Gary Bingner Hold Tight Video.

Book Bench 

I remain grateful to be chosen as one of the artists who participated in the public book bench art project for Artify Sauk Centre.


This project was a wonderful opportunity to honor one of my favorite MN poets, Connie Wanek. After sharing my painting plans with Connie. She replied with a bit of perfection.

My husband was willing to spend a long day watching paint dry with me at the 510 Art Lab, a very cool place in down town Sauk Centre, MN. Enjoy the making of video by Gary Bingner,
