It is June, 2023, and we embark upon the midpoint time of the year. I invited artist members to share their proudest moment they have experienced this year. We are delighted to share their achievements with you.
Artists are arranged in the order in which we received their submissions. Please visit the artists’ pages to see more of their artwork and read about their many achievements and inspiration. Visit their websites and contact them directly to purchase their art.
My greatest achievement this year has been receiving a Special Recognition Art Award for bringing positive change to the world! To be an Artist member of The Healing Power of ART & ARTISTS has been incredibly rewarding and humbling. I’m very grateful to be showcased amongst exceptionally gifted artists on an international platform, and I am inspired to continue pushing my paintings further. It has been a wonderful opportunity that has opened doors to a global audience.
I was pleased to be awarded on January 21, 2023, in Florence Italy, the International Prize Donatello for Artistic merit and the inclusion in magazine “Contemporary Celebrity Masters” published in Italy.
Having my photographs juried into “The Healing Power of Color” and “HerStory 2023” exhibitions have been two of my proudest moments in 2023. It is always a thrill to see my work promoted on The Healing Power of ART & ARTISTS and Manhattan Arts International websites.
I teach watercolor painting to students. I had beginning students never trying 1/2 sheet of watercolor painting before. We worked on vertical hollyhocks and I think both paintings turned out so well.
I am giddy to share news about this creative achievement – my new studio! I moved in at the beginning of this year. 2022 was filled with planning, renovating, moving, organizing, but it all paid off. Relocating more than quadrupled my available workspace! Now in the basement of my home, I have all that I dreamed of – a devoted art sink, expansive wall space, natural light, a separate studio entrance, a writing nook. It’s a pleasure to work here.
Since I arrived in Singapore in the Fall, 2019, I have been working with a local curator to schedule this show. Pandemic years put everything on hold. I’m delighted to announce news about my first solo show in Singapore and that I am showing 30 works of art from June 1 – August 31, 2023 at the German Centre of Industry and Trade, located at 25 International Business Park.
My artistic achievements so far for 2023 have been to be included in “The Healing Power of Color” and Manhattan Arts International “Her Story” exhibitions. My art also has also been selected for 22 Awards/Finalist status in various International Competitions, ranging from Abstracts to Art for Children. I am always humbled and thrilled to be alongside so many talented artists. This fuels my passion and inspires me as I touch more people globally.
