Great art is everywhere. In our tech-induced lives, we have Instagram, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, and the annoyingly adorable way Google periodically changes its homepage logo. There's the watercolor bumble bee illustration on the stationary I just us...

Giant paintings deserve dedicated wall space. This one had been wrapped up in my storage space far too long. When my girl Cori Kurker opened her own beauty business on Charles Street in Beacon Hill, Boston, I finally had the perfect space to showcase this oldie-but-goo...

We had such a wonderful time last night! Huge THANK YOU to Lana & Katie at December Thieves for having me and enduring my constant chatter for three whole hours. You are champions! And thanks to Damon of LeviZane Jewelry (pictured below!) for being a BA friend!

Alysa Browne reached out to me this year as a student at Massasoit College just outside of Boston looking for an artist to answer questions for one of her classes. I was happy to help-- I would have loved this project when I was in college at MassArt.

Join me on Sunday, June 5th in Beacon Hill for the annual Art Walk.

 

This day is always intriguing. Diverse local artists will be showcased. The historical Beacon Hill (where I loved for five years!)is both gorgeous and mysterious, a visual treat for all. You'll be able...

Here are some of my favorites from September-November:

 

I won't lie, embellishing for the purpose of appearance isn't my thing. I didn't finish the 100 Day Project. If all went as planned, I would have created my 100th piece of art in 100 days on December 6th, 2015. You...

I previously walked around with the close-at-hand excuse that it was important for me as an artist not to work when I didn't feel like working. I heard Dana Frankfort say it at a guest lecture she delivered at MassArt several years ago, and I immediately related. If D...

The 100 day project is on. Today I'm working on day 13 (September 1st felt like a solid start date).  I'm definitely in an abstract phase that's a little weird, a little crazy, but I'm enjoying it a lot. Some design elements have been carrying over each day and some ad...
