There is some construction on 35th street in front of the Zhou B. Art Center, so if you're driving, please come in the back via Morgan street. See maps below:

In the meantime, have a great week and I will see you Friday!

Void / Fill Preview

Only a few weeks until the opening reception! This week has been a whirlwind of productivity - putting the finishing touches on a few pieces, updating my mailing list, getting exhibition cards ready... It's going to be a great show. Be sure to check out Renee's website for more details!

The title of the exhibition, "Void / Fill", is twofold. Literally, "void/fill" is a term for packing materials - a reference to the cardboard and crumbled paper that litters my studio. However, "Void / Fill" also refers to the empty studio interiors. In this age of digital distraction, it is all too common for the trivial to drown out the important. I am still compelled by the duality of absence and presence; these new paintings play with distance (both literal and metaphorical) in different ways than my previous work.

I will be updating my website soon... some old work will disappear... and lots of new paintings will be available. Below are two new paintings - both of these will be on display in Renee's studio. Please come see them in person!

Exhibition Postcards

Exhibition postcards have arrived! I will be mailing these out in the next couple weeks. If you would like to receive a postcard, please contact me at Send me your preferred address and I will happily add you to my mailing list. 

The reception for the 3rd Annual Bridgeport Art Competition was last night. The show was beautifully curated. My painting "Pair" received an Honorable Mention award. There were some truly excellent paintings in the show; if you're not familiar with Jennifer Cronin's work, you should be. I absolutely love her paintings. 

In other news, Renee Laverne Rose has generously offered to make my show in her studio a solo show. I've been working on a few extra pieces; there have been some great late nights in the studio this week. Paint paint paint... Keep an eye on Instagram and Facebook for updates during the week, and check back here next week for a sneak peek at brand new paintings!
