New website, RAW art show, Denik journal cover

Alright! So I have an over-abundance of updates. First off, I have finally set up my new site. I may move blog posts strictly to the website so that I can keep everything in one spot, but we'll see. Please check it out - Feedback and FB artist page adds always make me a happy girl.

On another note, I'll be taking part in this upcoming RAW show for the second time. This is a great event filled with a variety of local artists and talent. There is certainly no other event quite like it, and the group that puts it together is fantastic. They work hard to make sure that everyone who is interested in the local art scene has their voice heard. Details and website to purchase tickets are linked via the image below. Tickets are $15 online (for every ticket purchased, I will add a friend or family member of yours to the guest list to attend for free!), $20 the night of the show. Online ticket sales end three days before the show, so be sure to get your tickets if you'd like to attend sooner rather than later.

I'll also be giving out free original art pieces for those who purchase tickets. Not only would I love the company, but this is a great experience. Come play with me!

And now for the third (and final) update. I just recently happened to stumble upon a great company called Denik. They take artwork from independent artists to publish on the covers of journals that they print and distribute to various companies. A portion of the proceeds of their sales go to help build schools around the world. My artwork has been accepted to their gallery - If it receives 500 likes, it will be published. Please help support me in getting this journal created, and help support this great company! Click the image below, and like away! Please spread the word ~

That's it for now - A few more updates on other art shows and film showings to come!
Keep on swimmin'.

Art on the Move ceremony

Today was the day! Many of us had our first experience "behind the ribbon" of a ribbon cutting ceremony. Six of the twelve buses were on display in downtown Raleigh at Artsplosure, and the majority of the talented artists chosen to have their artwork displayed on the CAT buses showed to talk about their work and see it up close. I'm so proud of my friends and other artists who I had the opportunity to meet and chat with - The buses look great in person. If you happen to see one, hunt it down and check it out at its next stop! Unfortunately, Artsplosure got rained on a bit, but that didn't run off the crowd. Thank you to everyone who showed up and for all your support!

Steampunk Revolution

So, I have secluded myself to the "art cave" to create numerous works of steampunk related art in light of the new show. Below is just a preview of one of the pieces created. More to come!
And here's just a sample of how my workspace looks during the process. It may not be pretty, but it gets the job done (and it's just downright comfortable to be surrounded by sharp metal pieces!)

New Scribbling for New Years

Happy New Year!
We just recently had a huge get-together of some of the most wonderful people you'd ever hope to me. Unfortunately, several couldn't attend due to previous obligations with family and/or friends (or they just downright hate us. We'll go with the former because I"m an optimist.) On that note of holidays winding down, when they really do no such thing, I've begun sketches for art pieces I hope to create on a large scale. In what medium and where, now there's a good question.
