THEN and NOW​​
In 1997, I created Love Paintings, artworks as gifts of love available for purchase. 

Grants and angel funding first provided me with start-up money to expand. Love Paintings took off. For four years I shared the project with galleries, hospitals, charities, vendors, gift-givers, art collectors, and celebrities. By 2001 I felt that the goals of the project were met. Love Paintings were put on hiatus.

Now, some 20 years later, we welcome the return of the Love Paintings Project ignited by a world pandemic.
