“Hope” – Mission Blue Painting Complete!

Ah, things go so fast! I meant to post this ages ago but this project and the show swept me up and away so I am a bit behind. As many of you know I was the curator of a show hosted by Haven Gallery which opened on October 29th 2016! This show was special as it supported the wonderful organization Mission Blue. Mission Blue creates “Hope Spots” in our oceans, which act like nature reserves, protecting and preserving the fragile ecosystems within. For over a year now I have been working on bringing this show to life and the opening was a success! Half the originals already have new...

“Into the Woods We Go” – Red Riding Hood Painting Complete!

Hello hello everyone! I am happy to finally share with you guys my Red Riding Hood piece, which I made for the Bad Apple Artist Collective show opening tonight in Portugal! Exciting 🙂 Fellow BA member June Leeloo will actually be there in person, so I am expecting some nice photos of the opening to start circulating the web tomorrow! The show is called “Perrault’s Fairy Tales” – Perrault being the French writer, living a century or so before the Brother Grimm’s time (I believe). Red Riding Hood was one of those stories and I used that as inspiration for my...

“Homebound” – Gypsy painting complete!

Posted by on Apr 2, 2016 in Gallery Shows | 0 comments

Hey friends 🙂 Wow officially in April, I can’t believe how fast the year has gone by. I have 2 shows opening this month, the first of which is at Aunia Kahn’s gallery Alexi Era! The theme for this show was “Gypsy” – which immediately brings to mind bold reds, golds, prints, flowers and an old world feeling.     I put together a big folder full of gypsy pics, including beautiful photos of the Romanian countryside (such a pretty place!) and decided I wanted this traveling woman to be in her homeland, back to her roots.     Biggest challenge of...

“I Move the Stars for No One” – Labyrinth Piece Complete!

Hey everyone – my latest painting opens at Gallery 1988 today for their new show “3o Years Later”. In true Gallery 1988 style – artists were asked to make a piece inspired by movies created 30 years ago in 1986. Considering I was born late 1987 – it kinda makes me feel a bit old lol! The movie Labyrinth however did in fact come out in 1986 and therefore was my inspiration for this show. It was a tough call between that and Highlander… but I think I made the right choice in the end 😉     I’ll tell you guys a secret though, I hadn’t...

Heart Chakra – Into the Woods Painting Complete!

Hey everyone – here at last is my painting for Haven Gallery‘s “Into the Woods” show, opening October 10th 2015. The forest has always been a source of inspiration for me, as any of you who have followed me for awhile will have seen that pattern time and again! I grew up next to the woods. As a child is was this endless world, foreign and full of magic – so removed from daily life. As a teenager it was a place of respite. So it is always easy for me to imagine worlds centering around the woods – when you enter anything can happen.     My...

“The Golden Key” – Grimm Painting Complete!

Hey guys! So the next gallery show I have coming up is something very season appropriate… “Grimm Fairy Tales”. This show is for The Dream Factory in Frankfurt, Germany. It is always nice doing a show on my side of the world 🙂 and everyone loves Grimm! Especially the dark, nitty gritty tales… however!! I decided to do something on the lighter side 😛       This is actually the 2nd Grimm painting I have done in my painting career, the first one was really dark with blood and missing body parts…all that good stuff. But for this painting I wanted to...
