Delighted to share that the piece below, "Sebbie and Oma's Teapot," has been juried into the American Women Artists 2016 National Juried Exhibition & Annual Members Show, hosted by the Bennington Center for the Arts in Bennington, Vermont, September 23 – November 13, 2016.

I spent last week at the IMC, or Illustration Master Class, in Amherst, MA. It was an amazing, encouraging, inspiring week I'd recommend to anyone looking to go into illustration or narrative visual art. There's a picture below of the piece I worked on there, not quite finished, but nearly. It's an exciting new direction in my work--exactly what I'd hoped the IMC would push me toward. This post is failing, magnificently, to encapsulate the experience, but it was a wonderful, overwhelming, over-saturated experience, and I'm still digesting it. But I wanted to post something before the moment past. So there it is. Perhaps more later.

These paintings are looking for the right home. Ideal homes include a bit of blank wall, ample smiles and laughter, and a roof to keep off the rain (while, unlike the Wicked Witch of the West, Sebbie won't melt in rain, the canvas he's painted on just doesn't like it). Paintings make great pets; they're super easy to clean up after. Plus, bonus: unlike other pets, paintings have minimal feeding and grooming requirements. These guys are all currently hanging out at Lotton Gallery in Chicago just waiting for the right adoptive parent to come along--adopt one today!
