“ART BAESL” and will be held on April 2nd, 2016. Thanks to the inspiration of Miami’s very own ‘Art Basel’,switched it so it reads “art baes-l” since we are all “art baes”. This show is to celebrate women and how amazing we are and to show our growth in the art community!  All the work included will be related to celebrating women or anything that symbolizes women in general.

 
DJ IVY will be bringing tunes to the show. She specializes in 90s and early 00s hip-hop and R&B.

Venice Art Crawl Photos

I was able to get a few pictures before all the the crawl got started but unfortunately too busy later on in the night to get the "people" pictures. I guess that's what happens when you get into the moment and have fun talking to everyone. It was definitely a great event!

Purple Cherry Blossoms - Sold

   I sold this piece to a wonderful man the other night. I had stopped by for a glass of wine with a friend and the lovely sommelier mentioned that there was someone that liked a few of my pieces and may be interested in purchasing one.    She introduced us and I was able to do a little bit of a walk through as well as describe the process a little.  I appreciated that he liked the variety I had in my work. I had to confess that yes, I am a little all over the place but that’s because I like to experiment.    You never really know where something may lead and a lot of the mediums that I thought I would hate, I ended up loving.      The cherry blossoms, I explained, are my relaxing paintings.    They are kind of like my doodles, along with a lot of the mountain pieces.    I generally choose to create black tree trunks and branches vs. brown because I like the contrast when I do the gradients in the background.    The blossoms / dots are so relaxing for me.    Have you ever done stipple art? Doodled by just doing a bunch of dots? Well, I love that and this way I can do it while creating a new work.    I’ll have to find a picture of a rose that I did once – pen and all dots.  I am so thankful for all of the wonderful feedback and am excited to continue this adventure.

The opening reception was a blast! Thank you to everyone that attended!

Thank you to all of those that made it to the reception! To those that couldn't make it - you can still see the work until the middle of May.

My night was made when on person told me that my paintings took her back to her childhood and that some touched her soul. I told her that she made my night and made my life. Yes, I cried but they were all happy tears.

Thank You

I have been blessed with a wonderful family, friends, colleagues and teachers that has supported me in in art endeavors. Of course my mom is my biggest fan and also the one who gave me projects when I didn't necessarily feel like doing anything. It always brought me back to what I love.  It's taken me a long time to get to this point and be able to share. Thank you again for those that pushed me and believed in me more than I ever could. 

"Speaking of Art is Useless if One Does Not Feel Anything" - Jean-Sebastien Monzani. I love this quote and I hope to do just that with each piece.  If I can also awe, inspire and bring happiness - I am doing my job right.

Sending love & light,
