A lot has been going on in my art & life this summer!
Thank you to all who continually support my art journey, and new followers, thank you for joining me! I am grateful for the conversations I am able to generate and participate in.
This year has been full of art blessings and productivity. Although I lost my computer repair job due to my store closing in early June, and at the same time had to attend to my father who was injured in an accident, I am happy to report that I have a new artist-friendly day job and my dad is speeding down the road to recovery so well that even his doctors are impressed!
During this time of uncertainty I was able to focus on my family, and on my art practice, taking the exciting step to start producing a web series of live streams of my art, viewable on Twitch.tv!
Show Announcements & Show Notes
I also had a recent piece, Acid and Salt, accepted to the Sand City juried art show that will take place during the West End celebration in August!
I am also currently exhibiting at Youth Arts Collective for their Summer Show!
This is my 9th year exhibiting with Youth Arts Collective. I joined as a student and now am an alumni/resident. It is so rewarding to not only be able to continue receiving mentor advice from the fabulous founders & art mentors, Meg, Marcia, Andrew, and Germain, as well as the community of artists YAC brings together.
I was able to have a very fascinating conversation about perception, reality, synesthesia, and whether computers will be able to have near-human intelligence in the future! Art has a way of opening these avenues of discussion.
I debuted a new print that I am in the process of making into t-shirts, patches, and other merch!
This summer has passed in a flash and I am very regretful that I will not be attending Burning Man this year. However, I am laying a lot of good career and art groundwork right now in my hometown that I trust will lead me back to the playa in 2017. And, to have my art accepted to a juried exhibition the same week as Burning Man is a good consolation! As much as I love posting up in Center Camp and drawing people all week, I am thrilled for the other opportunities 2016 continues to throw my way.
Look forward to more content videos, more merchandise, and exciting collaborations as we roll quietly into Fall!
