   Join me at the Juried Invitational Exhibition…

I am very excited to have my art selected, from over 74000 works of art, to exhibit in SoJie 23. SoJie 23 takes its name from the first letters of Solo’s Juried Invitational Exhibition. This month is only the 23rd one, ever, and 62 other artists, besides myself, are represented.
