art show

Thanks for supporting my music & art!

Last Friday, during my Third Friday ArtWalk at my studio, I did something pretty scary. Well, to me. I recruited several talented friends to accompany me in a musical endeavor, providing live music for the event!

I have been singing all my life, did my share of high school choir, but never took myself more seriously until lately. I took the leap and enrolled in voice lessons at my community college at the start of this year and have made conscious efforts to increase my range and control. It has been really cathartic to have a creative release aside from visual art, and I finally was ready to share it with the world!

I want to say a HUGE thank you to my talented musician friends, Gabe De Vera, Justin Huang, Eric Wobbles, and my lovely handsome boyfriend James Koenig for being my band for the evening. We got a lot of compliments and even tip money!

Also, a huge thanks to my friends & all the beautiful community members who came out to look at the art & listen in!

For everyone who missed it, my dear friend Lesley took this video of our last song of the night. Enjoy!

Studio Tour Wrap-Up!

I am pleased to report that I had an absolutely fabulous Open Studio Tour both weekends!

I had many great conversations about art techniques, the local area, and some chatting about old technology.

Unexpectedly for me, my print "Floppy" was my biggest seller. I will definitely be expanding this illustration series!

I am looking forward to next year's. But next time, I am going to make sure I give myself time on one weekend to go out and see other people's open studios for myself! There were a lot of great shows I missed from manning the ship at Meheen Ruby Art.
