  • I hope you saw my work at Louette’s BYO in Phoenixville!

As you know my work has been on display at Majolica restaurant in Phoenixville for many years, thanks to chef/owner Andrew Deery. On December 7, 2019 he closed the restaurant on the anniversary of its opening, after 15 years – that’s quite a run!

I moved my artwork up Bridge Street in Phoenixville to Louette’s BYO in February. In March the Covid pandemic closed everything down. By August owner/chef Steve Howells decided to close the restaurant…. to be continued
