Name contest!

Enter the Name contest!

I'm thrilled to share this new painting I have just finished. She's the new addition to my "Most Endangered Species" collection...

She still doesn't have a name! Yikes! Can you help me name her?

I'm going to have a "name contest" here on my blog, my facebook or Instagram account. Best name wins a free Giclee print of her!

All you have to do is leave your name suggestion here in "comments" by this Sunday September 2nd by 11pm EST. I will choose the best 3 options and post them on the following Monday, then you all get to choose the best one of the three options. (Monday Sep 3rd - Wednesday 5th by 11pm EST).

Winner will be announced on Thursday September 6th in the morning!

The original painting is on sale now directly through me, if you like her please send me a message! Thanks

My work at the Contemporary Art Museum of Kerava in Finland!

I was so stoked to receive an invitation from the Contemporary Art Museum SINKKA of Kerava in Finland to exhibit 14 of my babies! It's an honor for an artist to be invited to exhibit in their Museum. The exhibition is called "Alice in Wonderland" and I am working on a new piece for the Show right now! Yay!

Painting for BELA International Contemporary Art Biennale

I was super thrilled to be invited to participate in the upcoming International Art Biennale BELA 2018, which this year happens to be exhibiting in Finland. AVA Gallery from Helsinki has decided to feature my work and so I got working right away on two new pieces for it. This is a little sneek peak of what will be on show. I'm very excited!

My new piece I am working on right now. This is such an inspiring subject, I can't wait to share it with you!

"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!
