About the Series 

The Orquevaux mini studies collection contains 44 watercolor paintings on 100% recycled handmade paper with a natural deckled edge. These explorations of color and technique capture the sense of place I experienced during my two weeks as an artist-in-residence at Chateau Orquevaux in the Champagne-Ardenne region of France - lush green land; trees as far as the eye can see; the river running through the property; waterfalls rushing into calm lakes with a roar that reminded me of ocean waves crashing; the Northern lights and stars dancing over head.


The series ranges in size from 2.5x3.5” to 8.5x10”. These mini studies are perfect for displaying alone in a statement frame, or collecting several for your own gallery wall. 

Orquevaux no. 23

  • It is important to me that my work is aligned to a greater good, and I am making a difference in the world around me.  As a vegetarian and nature-lover, I am mindful of the impact that my art has on the planet and work to keep my studio free of animal products (vegan) and be environmentally conscious in my practices and materials.


    A portion of sales supports causes that are most meaningful to me, such as advocating for brain injury survivors and those with invisible disabilities as well as the rights of women, children and the LGBTQIA+ community.​ The specific organizations I donate to varies depending on what is happening in the world at the time of my collection releases. Examples of organizations your purchase supports include Sandy Hook Promise, UNICEF, The Loveland FoundationThe Boston Alliance of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Youth (BAGLY), and the Brain Injury Association of Massachusetts
