This exhibit is dedicated to all of my friends and family who’ve been a faithful audience
to my sunrise series on Instagram & Facebook. For almost 3 years now
you’ve peered at those tiny thumbnails trying to get a closer look without
much success. So now, with great delight, I invite you to view my backyard series #jointhemorning without squinting!

Platypus & Gnome, one of Wilmington’s newest fine dining restaurants carries on the tradition of Cafe Phoenix by supporting local artists. I’m thrilled to have this opportunity to exhibit my work in this iconic downtown building!

I hope you can join me Thursday, September 15th for opening night. I realize for some that won’t be possible but if your in Wilmington between 9/14 – 11/21, please stop by, step in and enjoy the view. Take your time browsing. No purchase is necessary but perhaps you’ll have time to relax and enjoy a morsel or a drink at their cozy bar while surrounded by my Carolina sunrise :-)

I want to thank all of you for your encouraging comments, thumbs up and likes – many mornings you were the spark to my fire for this series.
Many thanks to Platypus & Gnome owners Matt and Mary Danylec & Terry Espy and John Sharky. I’m forever grateful for my husband Kent for his unending support of my photo endeavors. Last but not least I’m infinitely beholden to my niece Elisabeth Woo – she had vision for me even before I picked up my camera for this series.

Wishing you all the best & I hope to see you there!
