I was honored to be included in this event – a storytelling variety show. Among the other storytellers were a comedian; a singer; a Guerilla Girl; a flutist. This is a picture of me telling the story of Hurricane Katrina from the eyes of a native New Orleanian, and sharing my paintings, The Katrina Trilogy
This event, on Sunday October 16 at 7:30 pm, will be its second annual occurrence. This unique event will take place at Theater on the Square, 627 Massachusetts Ave., downtown Indianapolis. I will be showing my Katrina Trilogy and telling the story of Katrina from my perspective as a native New Orleanian and a clinical social worker living and working with chronically mentally ill adults at the time of Hurricane Katrina, August 29, 2005. I will talk about how the tragedy still affected me 10 years later, and led to the first step in my career as a professional artist.

The premiere event for the Women of Indianapolis Arts took place last night, October 8, 2016, with art exhibitions by yours truly, as well as other talented female-identifying artists in the Indianapolis area. It was a huge success with a great turnout of all ages. Our website is now public and will be a source of information about what this dynamic group is doing, and provides individual bios for female artists in the area. http://womenofindyarts.com/artists-1/
