First Visit...

So I recently just had my first studio visit with the professors within the Grad program. I would say that overall it went quite well, I need more work, but positive feedback. On other notes I am taking a new turn in my artwork, which has created some "hiccups" along the way! I'm working to merge traditional with digital. Which means that my painting are going to the computer! It's a new exciting way for me to work, and I'm loving the layers and just the fun of it. I'm hoping to show you guys some new work soon, but I don't want to post anything until it is finalized! Let me know if anyone is interested in a sneak preview!

Great Things to Come....

So the days were short and summer went by in a breeze! Now school has started and it's a new beginning...and boy will it be busy! Well to update everyone I've have been working like a crazy person and have sold a few paintings this summer as well. I worked on a commissioned piece for a couple and it turned out great, I have attached the image above.

On other good notes I sold Elefantino and Wallpaper Flower #3 and #4, all were great pieces and they found great homes! I hope everyone who bought pieces is enjoying them still! I will be posting new work hopefully often for the next few months.

An oldie, but a goodie...

I wanted to share a painting that I did two years ago of my beautiful baby cousin. He was so young in this picture. He's now 22 and still this cute!!!

So on and So Forth...

My undergraduate exhibition is now hanging in Porter Hall Student Gallery (second floor) of Pittsburg State University.  We are a group of six girls varying in mediums from painting, digital illustration, photography, and art education.  It's an awesome show, the reception will be held tomorrow night, May 1st, from 5-8 in Porter Hall.  Food and drinks will be provided and it is open to the public! I am displaying some of my new work that incorporates my flowers with the portraits.  Here is a sneak peak for what is to come.

I hope everyone can make it to the show.

Next Friday (April 17th) is the annual Pittsburg Spring Artwalk, I hope that everyone can make it. It's going to be starting around 5 running down the business area of Broadway and there will be people going around viewing the artwork until 7ish, then there will be a band and goodies at Immigrant Park. Come One Come All, it's open to the public and it's a great time. My artwork will be in the window of Sweet Designs right by 4th and Broadway, I'm showing some of my new digital work. I hope everyone enjoys it.

It's been awhile

I just attended the SPE conference for the year in Dallas, TX, you can google it if you're curious, and took a great photo of my friend Sarah. We were in the Dallas Art Museum and decided to make a little art ourselves! You can take a look at her blog, just clock the link to the left for Beautiful Isolation Photography! She takes amazing photographs, she took the one of Jason and me that is my icon!

I'm so sorry it's been so long since I've been online with you guys, school has been insane lately. I was accepted into the Masters program at Pitt for next year, and I'm totally stoked about that and I've been trying to get some artwork done for my senior show that is in May. Hope everyone can make it, the reception is May 1st second floor of Porter Hall at Pittsburg State University, from 5-8 p.m. Open to everyone who wants to see the artwork of six amazing women. I also just completed a painting of three of my closest friends, I'll give you guys a look see and you tell me if you like it.

Nothing new thus far. School is on the move and gaining in the homework area fast. I have had a few recent calls from people wanting to have portraits done after I graduate which is so awesome!! Keep them coming, and I hope that I will be fortunate enough to paint Stephs nursery at her house this summer also!! You can see her progress on how the baby is doing on her page, she is a follower of my blog! Still working on a few pieces, hoping to unvail them to you guys soon!

An almost done picture....

Florence, Italy, street artist: So the week is long and never ending! But to keep busy I am creating a photo album of the images I got in Italy. For those of you who love a good photo album, but hate the time that it takes to scrapbook them you need to check out http://www.mpix.com/ I order all my images from them and also my great new album, they're super nice and really inexpensive. I'm also working on a drawing for a co-worker of his little boy. I hope to have images up for everyone on Sunday of the drawing. On the engagement front, we aren't planning too much yet, we're going to wait until graduation for Jason next December and then get a start on things, although I am checking things out and finding great ideas!!!
