Adventures in Art | Summer 2019

Summer has just begun but holy moly with a bang! At the end of June I wrapped up a huge custom painting, which was fun but also very challenging (it was a surprise gift, so very little communication was made during the process). I was  happy  to  hear  it  was  a hit! Then at theContinue reading “Adventures in Art | Summer 2019”

Everything Old is New Again

WELL. If you’ve been following my blogs, you will know I have had a really hard time focusing on work for my upcoming show with Jennifer Trefiak. I’ve been distracting myself with other projects (like my Ontario paintings for the July show, or personal projects like the Northern Lights, or film photography, or writing moreContinue reading “Everything Old is New Again”
