Reunion II Invitational Alumni Exhibition
Hello All!

9/16/14

I've had a busy summer, but it is finally winding down which means I will have more time to work on my artwork again! Until I have NEW work, I hope you can check out the work that I made during my residency in Vermont! I was fortunate to have two pieces accepted into the Youngstown State University's alumni exhibition called Reunion II. Alumni were nominated, juried, and invited into the exhibition. The show includes works from over 50 of YSU's artist alumni, and offers something for everyone to enjoy! The exhibit looks great, and it will be on display through November 7, 2014 at the McDonough Museum of Art.

If you're nearby, please check it out. And then head across the street to the Butler Institute of American Art! Two great museums in one trip! For more information, check out McDonough Museum of Art and Butler Institute of American Art

Thanks, and happy Fall!

Ohio State Fair's Fine Arts Exhibition
Hello All!

7/6/14

It's been a while since I updated my website so I hope to add some new works from the Vermont Residency as soon as possible. Meanwhile, I am delighted to share that I had a painting accepted into the Ohio State Fair's Fine Arts Exhibition. Roughly 1300 works were submitted by Ohioan artists and three judges accepted a just over 300 pieces all together. The exhibition hosts a variety of media and themes to attract all types of viewers! Admission to the exhibition is free and it is located in the Cox Fine Arts Building at the south end of the fairgrounds by Gate 8. The Fair runs July 23 through August 3.

I hope you have some time to come out to the Fair and check out a great show! And stop back soon to see new works!

Thanks!

Artist Residency!, Vermont Studio Center
Hello All!

5/11/14

I am elated to say that I am currently in Johnson, Vermont fulfilling a one month Artist Residency at the Vermont Studio Center! I was accepted last year, and it is finally here! With this being my first residency, I am both excited and intimidated. I am thrilled to have such a great location, facility, and community to engage with and fuel my new ideas! But, as I mentioned, it is intimidating having such freedom and time to do whatever my heART desires! Tonight I unpacked and set up my studio so that I can get right to work tomorrow!

For more information regarding my residency, check out the Vermont Studio Center

Anyway, I hope to add new work to my website by the end of June, so keep a look out!

Thanks for listening!

"DID YOU GET THE MEMO?", Kickstarter project!
Hey All!

2/14/14

Would you like a piece of my artwork? Take a look at my Kickstarter project called, "DID YOU GET THE MEMO?" The website, Kickstarter, offers a bulletin, so-to-speak, for people to gain funding for a project that they propose. "Backers" can donate to the project and are rewarded with gifts! In my instance, I'm rewarding backers with artwork! I hope you find something you might like and can help me out. I'm trying to gain funding for my artist residency coming up in May at the Vermont Studio Center.

If you, or you know of anyone who might be want to invest in my residency, then please check out my project at DID YOU GET THE MEMO?

Thanks for your support!
