New Things!

So you guys I've been working on some new work and will hopefully have images of them on here soon! I also wanted to tell you guys about the 1st International Painting Annual, by the Manifest Gallery. They will be producing a catalog of work that will come out next Spring and Flying Machine was selected for the catalog! I'm so excited about this! There has been a lot of things going on in my life right now 4 jobs and trying to keep up on artwork and produce announcements and personalized invitations for people. So soon the new work. But for all of you who are interested in finding new photoshop techniques I recently came across a tutorial on making your photographs look vitage. It's quite easy and I think it's a good way to help add a little flare into your images. Here is a before:

and the after:

Not too bad of a start! Here is the link on where to find the tutorial and several others if this interests you:


I will be posting work soon and trying to keep up on the posting!

I'm a bad blogger....

In the great words of my friend Sarah Crawmer "I'm a bad blogger!" I don't necessarily believe that it isn't always on my mind to post on here, but finding the time to do it becomes the issue! So to get everyone up to date the Gallery talk I previously wrote about went great, it was a small audience with lots of questions. On the Friday April 23rd Deann and I had our reception for Environments. There was an amazing turn out, plus the undergraduates were having their reception at the same time upstairs so we had quite a few people going through our gallery space to view both shows. Many thanks to those who were able to attend, it meant a lot!

On to further news the show will be coming down Monday May 10th, :(, but my artwork will be moving on to new venues! I have a few shows lined up for the summer and the Bird Tie is making it's way to the Mulvane Art Museum at Washburn University in Topeka. I am also featuring a few pieces at Merlot and Mozart here in Pittsburg on June 11th as well as a show at Club 609 in Joplin, MO, in August. I will let you guys know more as each event is closer. I am promising to be a better blogger from here on out!

Last weekend I attended the reception for the Kansas Collegiate Aesthetics 2010 show where Coalesce is hanging. The work looked fantastic. They had quite a few entries for both the graduate and undergraduate levels. There were a total of 37 graduate students who entered and 8 awards were given. I received a Merit award for my piece, and felt totally satisfied with this! The girl who won best of show had amazing jewelry work, and she really deserved the award. After the reception dad and I visited Heath in Wichita, it had been a long time coming, so I was super excited to see her!

For all of you who are curious I will be graduating (applause)! It has been an amazing journey, but it is time to get a job! And I will be teaching here at Pittsburg State in the fall! So for anyone who is interested in artwork I won't be too far!

I hope that everyone will be able to attend and eager to ask question about my new work and how it has developed. It is open to the public so if anyone just wants to stop by and view the view please feel free! Hope you all enjoy the show as much as I have enjoyed creating the work!

Gallery News!

The Sunshine Lamp Gallery in Joplin called me yesterday on my home and said, "Can you bring us your image tomorrow?" I was so excited that I had to pull over on the side of the road!!

Coming soon....

Im working on a completely new body of work. So far it's become very inspirational for me, and I wanted to post the first piece from the series. Masquerade was the first piece started and it's been rearranged and cropped many times. I feel like it's "almost" complete! I will have more work posted soon, and everyone wish me goodluck...my graduate review is the week after spring break. It's coming fast! and then the exhibit!
