I was thrilled to learn that ColorATL would be creating an installation for the Atlanta Beltline Trail. They called back many artists who contributed to the first volume edition coloring book to give us the opportunity to paint our designs on an enlarged wooden verson of the ColorATL logo.
Thank you to everyone who attended the opening at Genema Gallery in downtown Atlanta. What a wonderful evening seeing familiar faces well aware of my journey personally and artistically, while also having the opportunity to meet new ones. It was the first time for even myself, to see the culmination of years of work on display in the same space, a visual journey hanging on the wall.
It is the eve of an anticipated exhibition opening at Genema Gallery in Atlanta. Twenty-four hours before the curtain falls and all paintings are surprisingly dry, signed, varnished and framed. They lean against the wall eagerly waiting for careful transport and install later today.
Preparations are well underway for the upcoming solo exhibition hosted by Genema Gallery in Atlanta the first week of May.
I am currently challenging myself by increasing the size of my two dimensional pieces. While the canvases are gradually growing, I am also seeking to incorporate new or resurrected materials.
Here is a glimpse of what multi-tasking looks like for a visual artist, most specifically me.
This idea of incorporating a bit of hand sewing into my latest canvas creations was ruminating, but the right time, or maybe just the courage required, had not yet come…
I’m currently bouncing between several pieces, trying to create a variety of depictions to capture the magical and most mysterious act of ‘synapse’.
I am currently working on a new card to be added to the ever growing stationary collection… This is a flat one- sided 5×7 card with envelope that will soon show up for purchase in my online gallery.
Rather than succumb to the temptation of taking off in a completely new direction, I am challenging myself to continue on in my personal commitment to the Neuron Series.
My longtime rival, the blank canvas. It is admittedly a love/hate relationship.
It has been so encouraging to see the ColorATL project and its message of hope and community featured in various places, from local newspaper to far reaching blog.
The ColorATL launch party and exhibition was a huge success! Thanks to all of you who came out in support!
Come on out Thursday, Oct 27th from 6-10pm to help us commemorate the birth of the Color ATL coloring book project!
They seems like a true pair of enemies pitted against each other at the front lines of a cold war.
I am really excited about the invitation I received to partner with Color ATL, a new creative initiative bringing together 40 Atlanta-based artists in the effort to produce a most unique adult coloring book.
My current project is challenging myself to speak more clearly and concisely about my artwork. It was the thoughtful nomination of a fellow artist and friend that propelled me into this next opportunity, PechaKucha Atlanta.
I have some art supplies that I consider to be my tried and true go-to’s. They are my favorites, my trusties, my familiar friends in the creative process. I thought I would take a moment to share them with you.
