Upcoming Events

It has been a little while since I last posted here. I did my fist table on Weekends on Main Street. It was very hot (over 100 degrees at 5pm) but lots of fun. I had the pleasure of meeting Tejal and see her beautiful resin artwork and paintings. You should check her out on Insta @color_ur_imagination. It was also wonderful to spend some time with Karen, another local artist. You can check out her prints/designs @karenbarry_art

Tejal, me and Karen braving the heat!

It was a delight to partner with Studio Seven Arts – a local gallery in Pleasanton and the Pleasanton Art League -PAL truly supports artists in the TriValley

I enjoyed meeting people who were strolling on Main Street. Lots of families, dogs and bicyclists! It is a vibrant community we have here! I will be out again on July 23rd and August 6th selling cards, prints, coasters, stickers and original artwork.

air plant

I had fun drawing this air plant. I love these plants and terrariums. I have been also enjoing working with black backgrounds, using chiaroscuro elements.

I am excited to be launching my new Pet Portrait digital service! I know so many dog and cat parents and how important our fur babies are to us. I love drawing pets. A pet portrait is a perfect keepsake to show off the love of you fur family member.

I have been doing the Making Art Everyday challenge with Bardot Brushes. Today is day 93 and I am very proud and a bit surprised that I have done 93 Procreate drawings based on the prompts!! I usually peter out of these things when I use my traditional media material. Maybe it is the ease (just a few swipes and you can undo something or that it just needs to be charged and it is ready to go). Whatever the reason, I am very happy that I am keeping up this practice.

This little planter is by my side in my work office – I stare at it often and imagine painting it. So, I knew that I would use this subject for today’s prompt “cactus”

Art work for sale!

I have 2 small canvases up for sale in the Livermore Art Association ‘New Dawn” art show. Both are 6×6 and painted on all sides. It can work on its own, on a small wall, or be part of an accent of multiple pieces, or it looks great on a shelf. It’s very versatile! Art will be picked up in Livermore. I’d be happy to ship it if you’re not local. (Separate fee)

You will find this piece here – if you have any questions, please feel free to ask me!
