Commissions

This year I’ve been fortunate to work on commissions for several people.  Each has been a pleasure to work on and I really can take the time to personalize and tailor an artwork for the people who receive it.  As an emerging artist I welcome commissions. It gives me a chance to take on someoneContinue reading “Commissions”

A good time was had by all

This Saturday was “Second Saturday” at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA.  I decided to be more of a facilitator this time around and provide a free make and take workshop for anyone.  It was great! I had about 50 participants come in and hang out, while creating really beautiful pieces of art, allContinue reading “A good time was had by all”

For your viewing pleasure: Artist at Work

I finally found my tripod.  So I decided to film a time-lapse video of me working in my studio.  I’m actually completely done with the collage portion of this GIGANTIC mixed media painting.  I can’t wait to work on the other parts of it. This video is about half hour of work collapsed into aboutContinue reading “For your viewing pleasure: Artist at Work”

An over due update

The wall has been going through some changes these last few weeks.  There’s been some problem solving, much needed breaks, and some breakthroughs.  I’m really having fun with this project and the idea has taken on a different kind of significance and study.  I feel like it’s moving forward. So with the much needed breaksContinue reading “An over due update”

The Wall part 2

It really has been interesting to see what people say about my wall these days.  New people coming through the studio building immediately ask: What? Why?  The regulars (mostly artists), come through and give moral support, like:  Go for it!  This is awesome! and I get it! So what am I actually doing?  Why?  WhatContinue reading “The Wall part 2”

Creating my own virtual world

Are you tired of the Pokemon phenomenon yet?  It takes me back to when I started teaching and had to take away all the Pokemon pongs during class because the sixth graders were out of control with their virtual games.  It seems like Pokemon is a good distraction for some, but what about art?  ArtContinue reading “Creating my own virtual world”

New ideas

I’ve been playing around with some new ideas, and I think I’m liking it.  One of the benefits of having this studio and time out in the community at P22 is that I get to practice art.  Right?  I mean if you want to be good at something, you have to keep practicing, exploring andContinue reading “New ideas”

This piece has been accepted into the Third Biennial Maryland Regional Juried Exhibition!  I just dropped it off today and can’t wait to view the entire show in September.  Artists from the surrounding areas will be featured in the BMRE from September 18- December 31, 2016.  I hope to see you there at the openingContinue reading “Accepted!”

Summer time in the Studio

It’s my first week in my studio since I don’t know when.  It’s allowed me to work on a lot of projects that have been pushed to the side or stuck in my head.  This week I’ve already made some movement on some large paintings that should have been completed months ago, but I guessContinue reading “Summer time in the Studio”

Summer Schedule

So, it is summer! I know I’m a few days late, but I’ve finally been able to create a time when you can come see me in my studio!  I’m really excited about working there regularly throughout the season hope you’ll stop by. Workhouse Arts Center, Building 6: July 6 – July 22:  Wednesdays, Thursdays,Continue reading “Summer Schedule”
