Pictures from Love Show ’10

A closeup of my piece at the Love Show at Olympic Mills Gallery. It included a linkback to a page on this blog, so viewers could see how the piece was constructed.

An awesome voodoo shadowbox-dollhouse by one of the other Loveshow artists.

A friend points out things she admires about my art piece, using her psychic ghost hand…:)

Match, Set, and Love!

No First Friday for April

This is just an update that the art studio will be closed on First Friday in April for a private event.
Keep an eye out for upcoming announcements about the artist for First Friday in May!

Hawthorne Street Fair 08/16

This Sunday, SE Hawthorne will be having a street fair from 11AM to 5pm, all along the shopping district. There will be many different activities, sidewalk sales, and music all day.

our Studio hopes to have an open studio during this time, meaning you are welcome to come on down and see some of my work and meet me in person!
We also have a new upstairs neighbor, Dave, who is a filmmaker and may also be joining in with examples of his work.

Contact me if you would like to get the address:

Dreams show Oct. 3rd @ Launchpad Gallery


The above piece is not new, but it’s received a new context by my decision to enter it into the Dreams show, this coming month at Launchpad Gallery.

I felt it matched the show theme as the portrait depicts a young man I had originally dreamed about, but had not met, in a location I had never been to (England). Later that year, I did go to that place and I met him. The interaction that followed resulted in this piece. (And yes, he really did have that amazing hair!)

If you get a chance to come out to the opening, please do as the piece is in a spiffy new frame and looks awesome in person. The Web cannot do it justice.

“Dreams” opening night, First Friday, October 3, 6:00pm-???

Launchpad Gallery

534 SE Oak, Portland, OR
