 I will be selling all 7 of my books during the Historic Ellicott City Midnight Madness event this Friday evening, December 3rd. Look for me in a heated tent (yea!) at the Ellicott City B&O Station Museum.


Historic Ellicott City Inc. will be next to me during the Midnight Madness event this Friday evening, December 3rd. They will be bringing all nine puzzles to sell. Stock on a few is limited, so if you need them for gifts, now is your chance. More are in production, but may not arrive before the end of the year.

The B&O station and the Enchanted Forest are available in two sizes. Then Tongue Row, Clark’s Hardware, the Howard House, Patapsco Female Institute, and the former Phoenix building. ALL of the profits go to local preservation and restoration projects.

The Ellicott Theater has been converted to a brand new gallery space. The work of over twenty artists is being displayed. There is a large amount of my work also on display. And most of it is from my own collection of my favorite paintings that have never been shown. I’ve decided to purge my own collection to make room for new work, so this is a rare opportunity to view and perhaps purchase some of my more unique works.



I’ve just delivered a third group of paintings to replace ones that have sold. So there are now about forty items to choose from, the largest showing of my work since 2016.

The Gallery is at the intersection of Main Street and Columbia Pike in Historic Ellicott City, Md.

Hours: 

Monday, closed Tuesday to Friday 3 to 6pm Saturday 11 - 6pm Sunday 11 - 5pm
