Giving It the Boot


I visited my friend Clare Willson today at her home on Humbert Avenue in DeWitt, New York – I delivered two paintings for a silent auction fund-raiser planned for June 17, 2017 from noon – 4:00 pm (200 Humbert).  There will be food, live music, the silent auction and a 50/50 raffle.  Tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for children (free for children under three years old).  All proceeds benefit Clare’s journey to Mexico to undergo a dynamic treatment.  It promises to reboot her immune system ultimately reversing symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis, with which she has lived for thirty years.

For tickets to the event, call (315) 439-7844.


Clare hails from England.  She is a vivacious spirit, an artist who creates whimsical mixed-media artwork using found objects, old jewelry and paint.  Here are some pictures of Clare in her home studio.




Clare is represented by Edgewood Gallery.  Here is the blog post from her most recent exhibition there.


If you wish to donate to assist Clare in her recovery and cannot make the event, you can do so via or send a check by mail to Clare Willson, P.O. Box 175, Syracuse, New York 13214.

  1. Wow!!! Clare is so inspiring. She makes her art even though she has limited access to her dominant left hand! 😱What’s holding you back? Are you grateful for your mobility? I know I am!
