Welcome to My Website
Since a career change in 1994 afforded me the opportunity to devote more time to fine art I've been able to immerse myself in what I love so much, being an artist. Since my first solo art show in 1998 at Masterpiece Gallery in Cincinnati, Ohio, my artwork has been on display at galleries throughout Indiana and in Ohio and Illinois, including the Hoosier Salon annual exhibition at the Indiana State Museum and at the Eugene and Marilytn Glick History Center in Indianapolis.
I've included a sampling of my artwork throughout my website where I hope to share the beauty that compells me to paint. So many things beg to be painted. Art is its own language and there is so much to be said!
Keep checking back on my website. We will be updating it often with new artwork!
I will be giving a 2 day workshop this coming May on Friday the 20th and Saturday 21st, 2016 from 9:00am to 4:00pm at the Southeastern Indiana Art Guild Building in Aurora, Indiana 47025. This will be a still life workshop. I will be teaching using oil paints and it is the reccomended medium. Students will learn to focus on the relationships of light and dark values, warm and cool contrasts and using hard and soft edges. This will help create stronger design and more impact in their paintings. The cost is $250.00. Contact Joan Abdon at (812) 537-3878 to purchase your reservation.
I'm currently working on a series of paintings titled "VINTAGE". These new paintings are inspired by my collections of antiques. I want to present images that evoke a sense of the past as rich,rustic and time worn. There is such a feeling I get of the lives that were a part of these antiqes. I hope to convey this respect and love I have for these parts of our past.

I have always loved to draw and paint. My mother, who was very artistic, taught me the basics of sketching while I was still in grade school. Find out about my career and artistic accomplishments.

This past year has been very busy and fun! I have recently completed an exciting comission for Seven Hills Womens Health Centers in Cincinnati. It is a colorful triptych that presents three phases of womanhood. I loved creating this piece for their beautiful new office.
