CARTE BLANCHE @ Adah Rose Gallery Summer Exhibition

I have been invited to show two of my newest works at Adaha Rose Gallery’s summer exhibition entitled CARTE BLANCHE.   One piece, entitled “Desire Mapping” 2017, mixed media on canvas and a small work from a new series of “Confetti” abstract works is currently on view as part of the show through August 25, 2017.
