#the100dayproject / My 100 Days of Color

For years I have painted in a monochromatic style, or with a limited palette. In the spirit of #the100dayproject, an Instagram challenge that encourages a creative project for 100 days, I am focusing my attention on color. For this special project, I am keeping each painting I make, and will display them as a collection at the end of 100 days. Follow my journey on Instagram!! 

I have received a lot of inquiries about these paintings, though, so I want to make them available to you! That is why I am offering you a limited time opportunity to purchase a painting like the ones from my series. Your painting will have all of the characteristics of the paintings listed, but each one will be handmade specifically for you. You will receive the painting ready to frame in a 5''x7'' mat. I also offer custom framing options.

I have been doing custom work for quite some time, but now it's formal. If you are interested in hiring me for something custom, please visit this page and let me know what you have in mind. Thank you!!

New Work, New Website, New Year!

So, this was sort of a fluke, but we have a new website! I couldn't be happier, because even though my other website was great, this one is better. And it has way more potential with sharing video (hint hint hint). It also will zoom into my images super close so you can see details. Please check it out, and let me know what you think! And if you haven't already, sign up for my newsletter to receive 20% off your first purchase.

I had a wonderful experience at the South Haven Art Fair on July 1st and 2nd! A lot of paintings went to new homes, and I met so many wonderful people and artists. I also won the Emerging Artist award, which was a huge surprise. I definitely plan on going back next year. 

Visit me at the Richland Art Fair on July 15th and the Saugatuck Fair on July 29th

Studio Snap Shots

A few months ago I painted and re-organized part of my studio space. This is my "Clean Space", where I do my painting. My work space is actually located in five parts of my home. I also have an office, where I do all of my digital work and business. A dark room / print room, where I do all my photography and printmaking work. I have a room dedicated as a warehouse, where I store all my finished work. And a wood shop a.k.a. garage, where we do the framing. One day I will build a dedicated structure that will house all aspects of the business, and it is my dream to offer an apprenticeship program for artists. 

May Update

It has been a while since I posted an update. I am pregnant and have been very ill. I am trying to get myself motivated to get back into the studio and make new work, something that has been a challenge on top of preparing for this summer's art fairs. This is the first time I am giving my all to the art fairs, so it is taking a lot of work to prepare. Brochures, labels, boxes, packaging, building walls and tables... the list of to-dos go on. I only have a month until my first fair, so it is time to get serious. 

Here are some snap shots of the state of my studio.
