I’m pleased to showcase a piece in Emulsion 2017, East City Art’s regional juried show. To quote the Pinkline Project: “An emulsion blends two seemingly incompatible substances to produce a third yet distinct substance. Oil + Egg Yolk = Mayonnaise | Air + Sugar = Meringue | Baltimore + Washington = Art Competition. In this spirit, East City Art’s EMULSION seeks to blend the culturally different yet geographically close regions of Washington and Baltimore by combining a wide array of art forms and mediums such as two-dimensional work, sculpture and performance pieces.” If that sounds up your alley, I hope to see you at the opening or artist talk:
@ Pepco Edison Place Gallery
702 8th St. NW
Opening Reception: Friday, March 3 from 6-8:30pm
Artist Talk: Thursday, March 9 beginning at 6pm
Closing Reception: Thursday, March 16
Exhibition on view March 3-16, 2017
When I began my master’s program at MICA this past summer, I had a newfound freedom to explore. I was on sabbatical from my job, had ample studio space, and the mandate to take artistic risks. It was awesome! And more than a little terrifying. Continue reading
This summer, I began something new. I’m attending the nearby Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland. I enrolled in the Masters of Fine Art in Studio Art (MFAST ), a small, interdisciplinary MFA program. “Interdisciplinary” means I work alongside all types of visual artists – from sculptors to performance artists. This was important to me, because I’m exploring new mediums and no longer consider myself strictly a 2-d artist. The program is low-residency. It includes part-time study during the regular Fall and Spring semesters, and in the Summer, an intensive 6-week on-campus session (the “residency” part). I’ve just completed my first summer session, and I’ll go back to Baltimore the next three summers. Continue reading

I’m excited to debut a series of new drawings on Friday, April 22 at 51st State in Washington, DC!
Inspired in part by patterns in nature, mystical imagery and pop iconography, this series of drawings incorporates subtle humor and repetitive detail to explore themes of boundaries between self and other.
March is Women’s History Month and I’ve been fortunate enough to participate in events supporting and celebrating female artists. On March 5, I had a great time exhibiting as part of Fiverr’s Celebration of Women: Artists & Entrepreneurs in New York City, which brought together “some of today’s most innovative artists and entrepreneurs who are working their creative powers and owning it!”

For 30 days, I’m going to produce a drawing a day. Some days this may be elaborate, some days simple. These could be collaborative or solo drawings, pen and ink, pencil, complex and shaded or simple doodles. The goal is to keep generating ideas without pressure…or work through a lack of ideas. I’ll post these to a Facebook album here.
