Please put it in your calendar - the Ithaca Artist Market takes place Friday August 11, 2017 (2 PM to 8 PM) at the Ithaca Farmers Market Pavilion! Over 85 artists will showcase their work. Music, drink, food. What could be better.

After 44 years of making my carved and painted pictures, artwork keeps flowing out of me. There's never a problem in coming up with ideas. Instead there's just not enough time.

Consider a gift to you or someone else - anniversary, wedding, Christmas, birthday or other special event. Discounts apply to some older pieces, please enquire. Buy on time, I do payment plans. And yes, I ship.
