"Learning how to fly" finds her new home!

I just received this lovely photo from Laurie in California, I just had to share with you. It's so much fun to see a photo of my "baby" and see how she looks in real life, in her new home. "Learning how to fly" was bought from my "The Finnish Illusion" exhibition at Spruill Gallery in Atlanta. Thank you Laurie for sharing your photo with us!

The making of the Finnish Illusion 2018

About a year ago I had an idea that I wanted to do a group exhibition with my artist colleagues from Finland. I had a vision that it would be a small group of women artists who share the same pop cultural artistic vision as I do. I was so happy when I found two wonderful artists from Finland who wanted to go on the venture with me.

Katja Tukiainen and Maria Wolfram, are both from Helsinki and with a Master's in Fine Arts Degree. They both have amazing work, they are hard working gals with a positive attitude. I knew I had found the right group! I was even more thrilled when our exhibition proposal was accepted by Spruill Art Gallery, a beautiful exhibition space located in an incredible, historic 1867-1905 home made into an Art Gallery on Asford Dunwoody Rd, Atlanta.

So now for several months we have all been working on the new work we will be exhibiting. Our exhibition opens to the public on February 15th. One week prior to the opening Katja, Maria and I will begin working on a mural/installation in the gallery space. We are thrilled to be working together on this project!

Getting ready for my up coming group Show

I'm super excited about my up coming Show with Katja Tukiainen and Maria Wolfram. "The Finnish Ilusion" at Spruill Gallery in Atlanta.
