Join me for a tour of my new solo exhibit at A.P.E. Gallery in Northampton MA. Through New Year’s Eve, December 31, 2018.
Without much fanfare, I launched my patreon.com/dawnsiebel page at the beginning of this year. Patreon.com is a very exciting crowd-funded way to rally behind artists we love and for those artists (me!) to share and interact in return. It nurtures community between artist and audience. To that end, I’ve been making videos, fiddling with sound […]

Here are five of seven, new matriarch Stephanie […]
