Keweenaw Coffee Works – Artist in Residence

Super excited to be the first Artist in Residence for Keweenaw Coffee Works out of Calumet, MI.  As part of this AiR program I made an original artwork their label as well as a limited edition print to be cut and framed!  Once this coffee is gone, it’s gone!

New Work for 2015

Been a busy time around the studio, working intently on a new series of works on paper. I’m hitting heavy with my fascination for line and the interconnections between exactness and bold color. This is the first time I am delving into the world of gouache paint and i’m enjoying it so far!  It’s taken me a long time to find a paint that I actually like working with, I believe this is it.

Looking forward to the new year!

Bruxelles, Belgium

Yesterday I was in Bruxelles and had, yet again, a wonderful time. We visited the Magritte Museum and was completely blown away by these works up close. I find it amazing how much I don’t know of the masters, but feel my brain expanding as the knowledge is absorbed.  I feel so young in my exposure to art/artists, but know the experiences alter my state of thinking, concept and being. I am forever changed..for the better.
