EPCOT and WonderGround Gallery Schedule

Here’s the schedule for my upcoming appearances at the EPCOT International Festival of The Arts and WonderGround Gallery in Orlando, FL. I’ll be there February 9th – 13th.

For the EPCOT festival, you can find me at the WonderGround Gallery tent located in World Showcase between Morocco and France. You will be able to purchase art at the booth and have me sign it when I’m there.The art is already available at the booth.

In addition to the festival, I will also be doing two appearances at WonderGround Gallery located in the Marketplace Co-Op at Disney Springs. They recently moved into a new space and I can’t wait to check it out.

So, if you’re in the area next week, come say hello. This is the one time of year I make it out to Orlando so I like to see as many of you as I can.

Another EPCOT Adventure








I am thrilled to be heading back to Orlando for the second annual EPCOT International Festival of The Arts. I will have three pieces making their debut at the festival – A Wonderland of Cute, A Life of Adventure and A Prototype of Cute. I will be there February 9th – the 13th with appearances at both the festival booth and WonderGround Gallery in Disney Springs.

Follow the two links below for dates and times. WonderGround Gallery dates and times will be posted soon. Please be aware that this schedule could change. It is best to follow my social media. I will do my best to post any updates to the schedule there.

I don’t have any information on specific availability of merchandise during the festival. If you need specific information, it would be best to direct your questions to Disney.

As of now, this is my only scheduled appearance at the Walt Disney World Resort so I hope to see lots of you there.
