If you have wondered why I have been strangely silent on this blog lately, I can tell you why. Friday my new show opens in the Harrison Center‘s City Gallery! I have been too busy to pop in here with regular inspiration and updates on the progress of my work. This show was a race to the finish (being my second solo show in four months!), but I am pleased with the outcome. I will be in the gallery all evening Friday for the opening, 6-9pm. I hope you will stop by and say hi, check out the work, and see Kyle Ragsdale’s show in main gallery as well.


Did you know I am offering encaustic classes through the new Lawrence Art Center? The first class is this weekend, October 16, 3-5pm. There are still a few spots open, and the classes are only $25 (that’s a steal!). You can register for the class here or click here to check out the rest of the classes on the schedule.

Tonight is the second annual FOOD CON exhibition at the Harrison Center. It also happens to be Open Studio Night, so all the artist studios will be open, including mine! The opening runs from 5-9pm. Last year this even was amazing, so I highly recommend coming out. There will be lots of food and lots of art! Hope to see you there.

P.S. If you missed my show at the Earth House last month, come see the new work hanging in my studio tonight!

I want to say a big “thank you” to everyone who came out see my show that opened at the Earth House on Friday.  It was so great to see many familiar faces, as well as some new ones. The show will be up until August 29, so you still have a chance to see the work if you weren’t able to come out Friday.

I received my first ever press review for the show (this is a big deal to me!). You can check out the NUVO review here, if you are interested. Next week I will share more images, including photos of the sculptural half of the show.

Above is a piece from my very first solo exhibition, which opens this Friday at the Earth House Collective in Indianapolis. I pushed to the last minute to complete the show, fourteen pieces in all.

In total the show consists of seven “paintings” (like those above) and seven sculptural works. All the artwork is framed in salvaged redwood frames (my dad saved it from a dumpster!) handmade by my two awesome parents.

The show opens Friday with a reception from 5-9pm. I would love to see you there! The Earth House is easy to find on the corner of New York and East Street downtown (look for the old church building.). I am nervous about the show and very excited.

I want to be an artist when I grow up. I quit my job to try it. I will chronicle the results here.
