Neighborhood Craft Fair
Written by Alicia Martwick

This was a fun project with Alicia! Together we teamed up to create a children's book filled with creativity, love, and friendship.
You can purchase the book here:
The Souper Bowl
Held at The Valley Art Gallery, Forest Grove, Oregon. Held the week before the Super Bowl. This was an artist “competition” where the artists were required to complete a piece within a 5 hour time limit. The piece will then be donated to the Galley for sale.
Courage to Grow Show
I demonstrated some of my painting techniques during this 1 day event. The event was a conference of health care professionals. My part of this event was to emphasize the aspect of having a health concern (brain tumors & treatment thereof) it is quite possible to grow beyond the limitations that life puts upon us.
The Corn Roast Festival
This one day festival was a celebration of the harvest in Forest Grove on the campus of Pacific University.
Little River Cafe Show

This exhibit was located in downtown Portland on the Riverwalk. I’m a paddler and often ate in this cafe. My pieces were well received here.
