Painting for a cause…

20130609-190340.jpg

One of the perfect combinations in life for me is being able to share my talents for a good cause. This past weekend, I was able to do just that. We spent the afternoon at a silent auction / happy hour with a childhood friend of mine who recently lost her mother to Ovarian Cancer. […]

Painting in Memory

20130223-140128.jpg

Recently I was commissioned by a family member to paint a sunset in honor of a lost loved one. I was nervous about this painting because I became a little too obsessed with making it look “perfect”. However, something magical happened while I worked on the sunset-inspired abstraction and it turned out ok! I feel […]

Selling art and taking names…

20130204-154826.jpg

I love painting. I could spend days on end painting (especially if these days were spent on the beach, but I digress). But selling my paintings is a whole different barrel of crazy monkeys.

Etsy’s Home for the Holidays!

I had the privilege of attending Etsy’s Home for the Holidays celebration tonight for the Baltimore sellers…and it was a blast!! What a great idea, Etsy. I got to mingle and meet some great artists and sellers in the Baltimore area. More impressive, Etsy even took time to send two of their fabulous employees all […]

Handling criticism as an artist…

"Canary Sunset"

The awkward part about selling artwork is that it is literally like selling a page out of your personal diary. Recently, I was reminded how sensitive it is for an artist to give up a painting (that truly means so much to them) to an absolute stranger. I remember my first official show in my […]

Art at Havana Road!

"Tierra 1"

If you are even in Towson, MD take a stroll over to Havana Road and check out my paintings on display!  They look lovely and it was super nice of Marta (the owner) to show my work in her delicious Cuban restaurant. These paintings are featured at Havana Road:
