Thank you Brian Joiner for inviting to be apart of your league of creative visionaries in the Chocolate Exhibition at Prairie Gallery. Once again you challenged me to not only think outside the box but to pull from the sensuality that the subject matter(chocolate) already evokes to the senses. Along with the work of Gustav Klimpt and Alphonse Mucha you have once again inspired me. A portion of proceeds from the exhibition’s sales benefit the Taft Museum of Art’s Duncanson Society.

December 4th of 2010, I was apart of the Holiday Extravaganza event at the Cincinnati Art Museum called Magical Music. I engaged Museumgoers about my work and its relation to music. For one day I can say that I was in the Cincinnati Wing of the Cincinnati Art Museum.
On November 9th of 2010, Arts Wave invited me as a guest artist to be apart of their Board Member Training Class. It was a pleasure to meet and talk with potential board members who were graduating in to Cincinnati’s premier art organizations. In addition to sharing with the group my experience in art education and its services to diverse communities, I engaged the class with the interactive magnetic quilt project, which originated from one of my lessons from Contemporary Connection at the Contemporary Arts Center. Thank you Arts Wave for inviting me and my magnets.
