Part-time Nanny, full-time ninja.

Hi there!

It's been a while. I've been pretty busy and am finally relaxed enough to focus on my art again now that I have a part-time job to pay the bills. Thank goodness! I have some things for you:

I submitted a painting to the lovely Youngblood Gallery & Boutique in Atlanta (which I really, really miss going to) for a show in conjunction with a bike race called "Cycle Through." I sort of did this one on a whim with no planning, and it was fun. I am trying to push myself away from flat-colored backgrounds.

Also, I was invited to participate in the "Curiouser & Curiouser" Alice and Wonderland show at Gallery Nucleus. I am so happy that they keep having me back! The gallery has also released a print of my Where the Wild Things are piece "That Very Night..." available online here! I have to admit, it is super intimidating to be in shows with people I learned about/was in love with in college. That being said, thanks Gallery Nucleus for being awesome! I can't wait until I can actually go to a show... Now that I am done rambling, here are the pieces I did for the AiW show:

(this one is little)

(this one is not as little)

I just noticed that everyone is facing left (in my pieces). I notice these kinds of odd things. Check back in later for some right-facing arts. Or maybe up-facing, or MAYBE NOT EVEN A FACE AT ALL. WHO KNOWS!?

Thanks for readin' my blog. See you soon!

This Christmas, we stayed in Spain at my brother's apartment in Valencia for two weeks. He is living there now, working as the timpanist in the Valencian Orchestra at La Palau Del Artes. I kept a travel journal, and took a lot of pictures, which I'd like to share with you! I was tempted to leave out some scribbly pages, but I decided to leave in every single bit (except for one page, which is blank save from a taped on shell from the beach.) I have also mixed in some pictures, which correspond with the sketchbook pages.

It was a blast. Enjoy :)


Hey everyone,
I am excited to tell you that I will be in another Gallery Nucleus show this week!
