As Seen On Slingshots and Arrows

This is the second time I've had a painting featured in a collection on Slingshots and Arrows. Thanks for including me!

As seen on the blog:

group show – summer edition: freckles

I love freckles. Mine. My daughter’s. I love in the Spring, after the first real sunny day, that they begin appearing like stars leading the way to Summer. I love that my freckles linger like sexy dreams well after the flannel sheets and blankets have been placed on the bed.

In the News: I'm On A Billboard!


Hey babes-

Can you believe summer is almost over?!? I mean really, bummer bummer end of summer! I promise to you now that I plan to do my best to make up for summer days lost. My mantra: I will make it to the pool more than once. I will make it to the pool more than once. I will....

All that said, I've had some pretty awesome stuff happening in my working world. This summer has included a month of grant proposal writing (which may sound boring, but grant or not, it really helps to map out what exactly the heck I'm doing), the completion of a painting that is a personal turning point, my first show in Manhattan, shows in Connecticut and Louisiana, art directing on a film, publication of my work in Livingetc Magazine, booking a solo show for fall 2015, and I'M ON A BILLBOARD! And that's just the stuff I can remember! I'm not bragging. I work my butt off. Like every day. Like 12 hours a day. It's still working if I'm wearing something I slept in and baseball is on the radio. It totally is.


In other news, I'm on the panel for the next Creative Mornings talk on Friday August 22nd, 9am at the Walters Art Museum. We (and panels in 83 other cities across the world)will be discussing the topic of Failure. I'll post more info when the link is up. 

Other than that, the next few months hold the outcomes of grant applications, my submission to the 2016 Outwin Boochever Portrait Competition, a partnership with a clothing label (and hopefully more than one), and many, MANY portrait commissions. A lot of these items could be career tipping points, so I'm hoping momentum swings in the right direction.

Alright, I need to get some painting in, so I'm gonna split, but let me leave you with one final thought:


Bye. I love you.


A little info: LED Baltimore is a project that allows Maryland artists to submit work to be displayed larger-than-life on Baltimore's largest billboard, looming over 83 and seen by the masses traveling through Penn Station. I'm stoked to be included. It's so cool to look up and see my paintings at that scale! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what talent pops up next.

This photo is SICK. Kinda looks like a Hopper painting, non?

ALSO.... My general prices for full-sized commissions will be increasing on September 1st. This is your chance to commission a piece at my current rate. Email for details.
