I've Been Published in Uppercase Magazine!


I'm so tickled to share that my work has been published in the amazing Uppercase Magazine!
This publication has long been my favorite of all time, so it was very special to have this moment!
Janine had a call for art under the theme, "revise and remix," and I knew I needed to share my half and half flower paintings. 

These actually came out of a moment of frustration with some drawings I created in my sketchbook. (original drawings shown in image above). I ended up tearing a couple of them in half, and then gluing them into other compositions, and that got me excited!  I created an entire series with this idea in mind, and they have become some of my favorite work.

Thank you, Uppercase for the shout out!  I appreciate it so much! Creative friends, if you are not yet subscribed to this beautiful publication, do visit their website and consider it.  You won't regret it.  
Cheers!  And happy April to you!

The Opening for Crazy Wonderful was a lot of fun!

Big, BIG thank you to everyone who came out for the opening of Crazy Wonderful!  It was such a happy, busy morning!  My heart was a burstin'! When you are working really hard on something for several weeks in solitude, it's easy to forget the wonderful feeling of releasing your creations into the world.  When they make others happy, that's just icing on the cake!  Here are a few pics from that day.  Photos by Louis Collins.
