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…

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 […]
