As October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I’m a breast cancer survivor, I’ve decided to celebrate being five years cancer free since my diagnosis in October, 2008.  And because I realized I had a passion for painting during therapeutic art sessions that helped me through my treatment, I thought it made sense to celebrate by having an art reception featuring the very art work that helped me to heal, sooooo

I’m having an art reception on Friday, October 11th from 7-9pm at Wellsview Cottage in West Annapolis (510 Pafel Road, Annapolis, MD), complete with food and live music!  Come check out my art work while enjoying some light refreshments and amazing music performed live by MAJI’!  All of my work, both originals and prints, will be available for sale, just in time for some early holiday shopping!  Also, I have a special running through the end of October;  for all art purchases between $100 and $200, I’m offering a 60-minute Reiki session with me for $40 (regular price, $60 for 60 minute session) and for all art purchases over $200, I’m offering a 60-minute Reiki session with me for just $20!  So take advantage of this offer and let me help you get a fresh, relaxing start to the holiday season!
