don't forget your art


i'm excited to share that i am participating in a celebration of creativity to benefit the parish house, a new performance space in newton, ma.

this fundraising event will feature music by boston blackthorne and art featured by danene elise!

i am launching a new series at called "a beautiful mess" which is about the endless conversations i have with myself before, during and after i start a canvas. the conversations are often about what i'm creating and where to begin, or why i don't spend enough time creating, or why the canvas looks ugly or too bright or too immature. . . and so on. . .

while i worked on this series, i decided to have those thoughts if they came and to just keep going. i started with minimalist collage elements and colors. i am thrilled with the outcome. the canvases turned out smudgy and rough and also very organic -- it was a freeing experience to hear these canvases call out their color choices and to respond without doubts or overthinking. this was an extremely rewarding experience and i hope that you feel the energy as well.

the event kicks off on friday, december 7 at 7:00 pm at the parish house which is located at 11 highland ave., newtonville, ma.

i look forward to seeing you there!

on any given day, you can find me in my studio dancing to loud 80s music, burning incense and building art full of texture, depth and layers.
