I am also a gardener. My garden is filled variety: a rock garden; lilac garden, a ever changing perennial garden. My husband and I have done extensive landscaping with almost 20 shrubs blossoming in Spring. The white dogwood offers shade to the fish pond. We also continue to experiment with raised bed gardening. Hummingbirds and butterflies are attracted to ever-changing Spring to Autumn flower display.

Pastel and Acrylic Painting
I have a beautiful 24x 24' gallery and loft studio filled with paintings depicting realism to abstraction. I love color and painting flowers and landscapes. My landscapes reflect my traveling. Abstraction offers me freedom to use texture and layering to paint. My work is very unique to me.

Gourd Sculpture, Wood Burning, Birch Paintings
Unique Sculptural Gourds (cut and painted; each an original piece of art): some functional (holders for pencils, eyeglasses, etc.), some decorative. I’ll also be showing Birch paintings on textured paper, and Pyrography (wood-burning).

Painting: oil, pastel, acrylic, watercolor – Cement sculpture and Garden Art
My garden is my playground, a space to fill with peonies, iris, and all manor of perennials that are in their full glory during the Art and Garden Tour. Even more, I have space to create cement sculptures in my “fort,” enclosed by a variety of willows. Within that space I can mold and cast colorful cement leaves and even flowers, beautiful in their natural form; enhanced by bright color, and better still, weather-proof in all seasons. After eight years of creating the Lobby Entry Display for the CT Flower and Garden Show in the Convention Center in Hartford, my studio has profited from those same sculptures brought home and planted to be permanent fixtures in my garden. In addition to planted “garden ladies,” a large and small planted peacock, giant illuminated mushrooms and a lighted “hobbit abode,” there are sheep, chickens, a giant tortoise, and a seven-foot lion standing alert beside a boat filled with a fountain and a fairie house display. You will find many, many succulents in hypertufa containers, planted globes, and spheres on small columns that can define an entry or hide an unsightly post in your yard.
FentonRiver Studio is my studio and gallery located within a colorful cottage garden.Entering the grounds past the planted Garden Lady you might want to wander through the willow archway. To your left is my Koi Pond and illuminated ‘Hobbit Abode,’ where a small artist just left – her painting still on the easel. Turn right to a seven-foot lion and a planted peacock standing guard near a fairie landscape in a boat, highlighting the whimsy visitors have delighted in while exploring this artistic space.Walking through walls of colorful cast cement leaves, decorated fairie houses and succulents galore in unique lava containers, you will find a moss chair blooming with primrose. Take the path sparklingwith mother-of-pearl, and enter my home and studio, featuring more than 150 oil, pastel and watercolor paintings. And there’s more…My life is dedicated to the expression of beauty in a space created for the enjoyment of others.Welcome!

My gardens consist of a perennial flora garden with a water feature interspersed with numerous architectural elements. I also have installation sculpture space consisting of recycled agricultural, industrial and architectural metal works (some pieces by me, some by others).
My work is light to the touch and dazzling to the eye: lathe turned vessels sculpted from local, found hardwoods. I extend the boundaries of the wood medium with thin wall piercing, dyes, airbrushing and a dramatic, color saturated, high gloss finish. A perfect marriage of the natural properties of wood with my modern, irreverent artistic vision

My wife, Ellie, and I have created a backyard that we enjoy working and relaxing in. Ellie's gardening and my studio work are enhanced with landscaping ideas that we work on together.
