It’s been awhile! I have quite a few updates to share! The cozy holiday spirit is among us! I hope everyone is making joyful memories with friends and family this December!

Here Comes Winter’s Chill!

 I have a few unfortunate life flurries to share… Recently I have surgery on my right hand to save two of my fingers! I had a nasty bloop with my blender… All is good though, I can hold a paintbrush without an issue! I thought I could stay in one piece for a while but just the other day I found myself in the emergency care unit… So how did I manage to do that? Well, I slipped down my wooden staircase and earned myself a fractured spine and a bucketloads of excruciating pain. Here we go again… I’m back on the healing journey to recovery! It feels quite similar to when I was recovering from broken ribs. I think it is safe to say I’m a bit accident prone…

Recently Completed Commission!

“Scooter” was a commissioned pet portrait of a fur baby who has made his passing… The lovely patron was surprising his longtime friend! The family had absolutely no idea! The gesture is so touching… 

Recent Exhibition!

“True Colors” (16×20, oil on canvas) was selected for the 2019 Art4Apes  Endangered Fine  Art and Photography Contest Exhibition! I am absolutely honored to be a part of such a positive event for the precious Apes that are in need of the healing touch of kindness. This piece is currently available for $3,070.00. 30% of the proceeds will be donated directly to the Center for Great Apes to contribute to providing a safe sanctuary for the apes that a desperately in need a home.

Currently in the Studio

I’ve been secretly working on my series “Spirits of Animalia”.🦋 Each piece will have a spirit animal that is endangered… This is a piece that has been an emotionally exhausting creation to make… This is quite an emotional piece for me. When working on the designing process and research, I had to take mental breaks due to being in tears over the horrendous and gruesome realities that are happening to these beautiful creatures. I knew I wanted to paint tigers, the design and ideas behind the piece stemmed directly after learning about pouching and pelting industry. I knew that it was that threat in particular that I wanted to address in the piece. I decided upon making a spirit mother tiger bidding farewell to her cub before parting worlds due to being slaughtered for a carpet. The mere idea of it makes me tearful. I am determined to bring awareness to this disgusting practice in hopes of inspiring change. I feel like there is a heavy burden on my shoulders that demands to be lifted. It is my absolute duty to make a difference for suffering animals, I am determined to discover how I can use my artwork to do so.

That’s all for now, have a lovely Winter holiday! Stay warm and cozy with those you love! Thank you for being a part of my artistic journey!
