Exhibition(s) Announcement

So, 2019 is already off to an exciting start! I got confirmation a few days ago that my art will be hanging at two locations in the next few months, and I’m so excited I literally cannot even. Here’s the general info …

April 2019: My acrylic paintings will be at Elliott Bay Brewing Company in Burien, WA. Something extra exciting about this exhibition is not only will I recreate my 4 x 4” pieces in larger scale but I also plan to do a piece specifically for the brewery.

June 2019: It is yet to be determined whether it’ll be the paintings, portraits or both on display, but during the month of June I will have my artwork hung at Third Culture Coffee in Old Bellevue.


Also, I plan to try and organize opening receptions for these exhibitions. I will post deets on them as they come in. In the meantime, stay tuned for lots of behind-the-scenes posts I’ll be sharing! :)

End of an Era ... Sort Of

As of tomorrow, my art will no longer be hung at the CoCA gallery or Freshy's Coffee. It's truly been a wonderful and surreal experience showcasing my work in these venues, and I am so grateful I that had those opportunities.

When it comes to trying to get your artwork hung in public places, I've found that it requires being super proactive and persistent. I've had so many cases where I contacted a venue several times (of course I would leave some breathing room in between messages because obviously I don't want to seem like a crazy person) and never heard back. But, it's one of those things where if you notice something isn't working out or going anywhere, you just have to move forward and look out for your next possible opportunity. 

I look forward to getting my art hung in more places hopefully soon! I will keep all you lovely artists and art lovers out there updated for the next time you can see my portraits on display. :)
