I am excited to learn that my pastel "Light Celebration" was juried into the 2019 Great Lakes Pastel Society Members Exhibit  at Carnegie Center for the Arts, Three Rivers, MI. 

This pastel also received the First place award in the 2018 Saginaw Plein Air "Quick Draw" juried competition,

I'm thrilled to announce that my pastel, "Basking in the Light", was accepted into the Great Lakes Pastel Society National Exhibit,  May 18-July 17, 2018 at the Holland Area Arts Council in Holland, MI.  Competition was fierce, out of 213 entries, Nancy King Mertz (Nationally acclaimed Chicago artist) Juried in 57 entries.

I was also honored at the State of the Arts Exhibition 2017, Saginaw, MI 

My pastel: "Reflection" received the Purchase Award from Brown & Brown, Inc. Out of 156 entries 87 were accepted into the exhibit. It's a pleasure to have your work juried into an exhibit and then to receive an award is an added bonus.
