Studio Silence

I decided to shoot a bit of footage as I pack up my studio for the move to the new apartment.  This is a very bittersweet time as I am excited about our new place however, I will miss my lovely studio space.

I hope that you will enjoy the video.  I'll see you soon in my new studio!


Have a great week!


Soul Searching

Hello everyone!  It's been a rough week creatively for me.  I haven't been motivated and, I feel a bit stuck.  I think that it has everything to do with the fact that we are moving soon.  I'm surrounded by lots of chaos and boxes at the moment.  I was able to push through and complete this art journal spread.  I felt so good to get something finished.

Earth Song - Mixed Media Painting

Happy Wednesday! I have a new Youtube video for you today.  I painted this one rather quickly this morning.  The last few weeks have been pretty busy for me.  This painting was a great way for me to relax, unwind and just enjoy creating.   


Have a great day,

 Hello everyone! I mentioned in my last post that I was preparing for my first art exhibition.  The exhibition opening was on last Saturday and it was great! I even sold a painting, how cool is that!

The exhibition is at the Art Lounge.  The gallery is not far from my home, as a matter of fact, I walked to the opening.  You probably didn't know but, here are many Art Lounges around the world.    It all started in New York City.  The concept is that artist rent wall space at a reasonable price to display their work.  As a new or even experienced artist, it is very difficult to get your work shown in a gallery.  Many established galleries only want to show artist who they are familiar with.  The Art Lounge concept is a great way to get your work out there and, it is also a great way to connect with other artist.

The opening was well attended by some very nice people who love art.  The mayor showed up and, I was even photographed by the press.  My work will be on display at the gallery along with the works of seven other artist until June 10th. Since you guys won't be able to attend in person, here are a few photos so that you can share in the experience.

I met some wonderful people. The gentleman and his wife pictured below bought my painting.
