Join me for my annual "Layers of the Forest" workshop at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. Three days of painting in the blissful setting of the Sitka Center, nestled into the confluence of the Pacific Ocean, the Salmon River, and the Cascade Head Nature preserve. Sitka Center is near and dear to my heart I began my career here immediately after graduating with my BFA in 2007. We always have a wonderful group of kindred spirits in this workshop, who love art and nature and making beautiful paintings with heart. Find out more and register via Sitka Center here.
I'm so excited to be a part of the 21 Secrets “The Great Outdoors” Summer Studio this year. 21 Secrets is an online art journaling class that features a different lesson each day from a different artist. When you sign up, you basically get 11 mini-workshops by 11 different artists.
“The Great Outdoors” Studio Session runs from July 30th - August 10th, but you can register anytime before July 29th. I’m really excited about the workshop I created for this course. My lesson for “The Great Outdoors” is called “Lush Foliage” and it takes you through a nature walk, where you learn to make a spread based on what you find.
You can sign up using this spiffy link . When you do, I’ll get a small portion of your registration fee. 21 Secrets also offers another Summer Studio class called "Just Add Water" which also looks amazing. The two classes can be purchased as a bundle.
I'm delighted to announce my new solo show opening Thursday, September 6th at Powell's Books in Portland. We'll have an official show opening that same day at 6:30 as part of First Thursday in the Basil Hallward Gallery on the top floor. The show will run for the entire month of September!
If you've never been to Powell's you are in for a treat. It's a must-see in Portland and is the area's largest used bookstore. And they also host art shows. Cool? Cool!
I'm so excited for you to see all the new pieces I've been working on and hope you can make it to the show. Maybe I'll see you at the opening Sept 6th!
Spend the weekend exploring the spectacular Oregon coast and visit me at the Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. I'll be painting and showing work at the Sitka Center as a part of the "Art on the Edge" central Oregon coast studio tour.
Three days in the wilderness to paint?! Yes, please! Join me for my most adventurous retreat, in the midst of Oregon's pristine Opal Creek Wilderness. All food & art supplies are provided, and you'll stay two nights in a cozy cabin in historic Jawbone Flats. What will time making art amongst thousand-year-old ancient trees inspire in you?
