Thank you for stopping by to learn more about my fund raiser AKA 'Fun Raiser' since we support children and art. I am so honored you are here. I am gearing up for my 3rd Annual Daily Painting Challenge for Charity! This is how it all works, I challenge myself to paint everyday during the month of February and each painting completed during this time will have a hidden heart somewhere in it. All the paintings will go up for sale upon completion and all the proceeds go to charity. It's a fun way to pay it forward and support our community. This year the money raised will go to help students from Agape attend classes are the Memorial Art Gallery.

The 2nd Annual "Have a Heart, Hidden Heart 28 Day Painting Challenge for Charity" ran from February 1st - March 15th, 2022. This year Joan helped raise over $3,000.00 for the Memorial Art Gallery's (MAG) Extended Learning Program (ELP) collaboration with the Rochester City School District (RCSD). To learn more contact Joan or the MAG. All paintings are original acrylic paint on watercolor paper, under glass or matted and unframed. Image area measurements and price vary depending on painting. Feel free to contact me at email@example.com.
During our 1st Annual "Have a Heart, Hidden Heart 28 Day Painting Challenge for Charity" we raised $1,100.00 which was slit 50/50 between The Center For Youth and the YMCA's Invest in Youth.
Paintings above are titled "Claira's Bouquet" 1 and 2.

I have been expanding where my collectors can purchase my products made from my fine art. Initially I only sold through my website. Today I have expanded my reach and am now featured in a select group of NYS galleries and museums, I do the occasional pop up markets and soon you will be able to purchase select merchandise from different boutiques nation wide. Details to follow.
Meanwhile sit back with a cup of tea and shop on line or stop in at The Store @ MAG in Rochester NY for a beautiful selection of products and original art for sale!
Collectors on my email list are the first to learn about everything from classes being offered to pop up shop tart openings and oh so much more. Join here and stay in the loop!
As an avid hiker and landscape artist, I try very hard to do my part for our environment. One way I do this is by reusing packaging material whenever possible to send packages from my studio. Please help by reusing it for your own needs. Together we can help reduce negative impact to our earth. Small changes can have big impacts! Thank you!
Last year on Instagram I spoke about my philosophy as it related to my studio practices. To learn more click the link below New Information will be recorded and shared soon.
