Artwork / 2020
2020 was scary on a global scale. Though some days the weight of all the suffering caused by COVID-19 and by 45’s mishandling of the virus left me unable to function, I still made art.
In this gallery, you’re seeing commissioned pieces as well as small affordable artworks—pieces whose sales allowed me to keep making a living even as the economy fell apart. I made a collection of images in direct response to the pandemic and published my animal alphabet book, Baby Sees ABCs.
Full of first names, fun art, and unusual fauna, this ABC book is all about verbal and artistic literacy!Baby Sees ABCs is available for $20. This price does not include shipping or tax, which will be calculated by Lulu, the service that will print and ship the book.
My work was also featured as part of NJ Transit’s TRANSITional Art Project, a public art exhibit. This eagle image and this sea turtle painting were blown up, printed out, and put on display at the railway station in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
When I quit Facebook at the end of 2020, I was a bit nervous: glad to distance myself from a company whose main priority seems to be quantity over quality in all things, but still worried about the impact on my career. It turned out that the repercussions were overwhelmingly positive, like being invited onto The Inspiration Place! Other interviews I did this year include this ArtC video and a Phoenix 15 Studios one.
