West Seattle Art Walk

Art, Exhibition

Framed my first piece today, then dropped it off at the studio.  I’m excited to part of this student exhibit, showcasing a diverse array of work by artists who have taken classes at Northwest Encaustic Studio.  If you’re in West Seattle, I hope you’ll come by, and enjoy 3 floors of art as part of West Seattle’s Art Walk in July and August.

Transform –  (amphibious lungs)

I’m SO excited to announce my 11th show (in a year) — which also happens to be my first Featured Art Show!!!  I will be presenting the first 5 panels of my new series, My Life in 24 Frames.  These are my most recent pieces, all created within the past 4 months.

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve seen this body of work evolve.  But of course, it is impossible to capture these pieces in a still photograph.  They need to be seen, experienced, and (dare I say) felt, in person.  The self-portrait, for one, changes radically depending on your viewpoint…

Rainier Chamber of Commerce

Art, Print

Just got a call from the Rainier Chamber of Commerce asking if they could feature my artwork on the cover of their annual guide & map for the region.  🙂  For years, the Chamber has selected a work by a local artist to showcase on their cover.  They reached out to me because they saw a particular piece that caught their eye.

Look forward to seeing this Water Lily on guide books around town…

TEDxSeattle – Why the World Needs Your Story

Activism, Art, Film, Narrative, Speaking, Story

I’m excited to share that the video of my TEDxSeattle talk is FINALLY live!!!

When I started working on this talk in July, I couldn’t have imagined how vulnerable I would feel, delivering what now seems like a timely counter narrative to a packed McCaw Hall, just 2 weeks after the election.

So…if you like what you see, please consider giving the video a “thumbs up”.

And I encourage you to share this with any/all who might be interested.

Thank you kindly!
