Happy first day of fall!!! It's been a busy summer full of travel and send offs and it's all been wonderful!
I have a few Workshop related bits of news I wanted to share with you all:
It’s been a long winter and spring helping to prepare my daughter for her high school graduation and attending lacrosse games and tournaments with my son, who has completed his freshman year in high school.
I’ve been enjoying my summer so far and am looking forward to beach trips, more tournaments and sending my daughter off to college in August.
In the studio, I’ve been working on a new group of small works that are now available online. We’ve also been working on our fall schedule for workshops and have some exciting dates to announce!
Exploring Color: Charlotte: September 9 – 11
This will be a small class limited to six students and held in my studio
Still Life & Figure: Beaufort, NC: October 7 – 11
Held at Craving Art Studio
Exploring the Surface: Charlotte: October 22 – 25
Once again, we be at the Youth Hall at Myers Park Baptist Church
I look forward to seeing everyone soon and wish everyone a wonderful summer!
So excited to be teaching again in Charlotte this spring and even more excited to be teaching a Color Boot Camp Workshop! The workshop will be held May 2 - 4 at Myers Park Baptist Church in their Youth Hall. This isn't going to be another one of those boring old workshops, I promise to make these three days fun and filled with color exploration from several different approaches. We will be completing several smaller paintings as well as a some larger studies. To register and get more information, click here.
October is such a beautiful time of the year in Charlotte, which makes me excited to be hosting my next workshop October 25-27, 2017. Class is filling up fast though and we only have a few spots left. We would love to have you join us, to get more information and to register, click here.
In February I am looking forward to heading south and visiting one of my favorite cities! I will be traveling down to Atlanta for my first workshop of 2018 at Binders Art Supplies in Buckhead. My Atlanta workshop is running February 7-9, 2018 and space is limited, to get more information and to register click here.
Can't wait to see everyone!
I just finished up a new collection of small figures and florals and happy to say, we have added them to the online shop. They are all on 2" gallery wrapped canvases and are wired to be hung! I can be shipped anywhere in the US or if you live in Charlotte, they are available to be picked up from my studio. For studio pick up, enter promo code "queencity" and we will contact you to make arrangements. Enjoy!
This has been such a fun spring and summer here in the studio! I am beyond excited to share a quick peek at the collection that recently arrived in Atlanta at Huff Harrington! Even more excited to to say there are a few more paintings being loaded up on the van and heading down next week! Thank you Huff Harrington for your constant support! If you are in Atlanta, please stop by the gallery and say hi to the ladies and see the new collection.
Thursday May 18th from 6-8pm, you will be able to find me at ArtSource Fine Art located at 4421-123 Six Forks Road Raleigh NC! ArtSource will be hosting a show called "A Moment In Time" that will run from May 18 - June 16 and it will feature Sharon Bass and myself. Everyone at ArtSource have been such wonderful supporters of my work and I am excited to be spending an evening in Raleigh! Please come visit if you are in the area!
Such exciting news! I have scheduled my next Charlotte Workshop for October 2017 and I have scheduled an Atlanta Workshop for February 2018! "Exploring The Surface" will include topics like: Color Theory, Value Studies and Simplification, as well as other subjects. Space will be limited at both venues, so please register early and feel free to email me with any questions.
I have to say, I just got back from such a lovely trip to Beaufort NC and Craving Art Studio! My fantastic host Heather Sink was just as much of a pleasure to be with this year as she was last year! She is currently hosting a show of my works until the end of May and was so kind to host my three day "Exploring The Surface " workshop. I love doing workshops in Beaufort so much, we have agreed to do another one next year, once we have dates, we will update everyone! Beaufort is such a beautiful town, full of great people, food and amazing views! For those who don't know, it's actually the third-oldest town in North Carolina, it's a coastal town located in an area referred to as the "inner-banks" and it hosts several fun festivals through out the year. I just lucked out to be there for the 2017 Beaufort Wine and Food Festival this year!
Excited to share some news! I have secured the dates with Binders Art Supplies in Atlanta (the Buckhead locacation) for my "Exploring The Surface Workshop". The workshop will be February 7-9, 2018 and registration will begin here on my website in the next few weeks, so stay tuned! I am also planning on an October Workshop here in Charlotte, we will have those dates finalized by early May.
