Welcome November! I am a little late on my welcoming but better late than never. November will be a busy month for me, a lot going on as I had mentioned in my previous posts. I hope for a healthy rested month to get through it all.

I would like to thank everyone who has helped sponsor me in my RAW show so far.

This past weekend I went to the Gilbert Art Walk to scope it out for when I will be participating for the first time on November 15th. It was so fun because the farmers market was going on at the same time! Come check it out and support the locals.

It has finally gotten a bit cooler here in AZ. WOOHOO!

I ordered prints last week so excited for them.

Here is a little gem preview for the holiday season, enjoy 🙂

Hey Everyone! I took 3 days off to just chill in beautiful Prescott, AZ. Anyways, I wanted to share with you this custom portrait I did for a wonderful girl I met in college. It was a gift for her sister and what’s better than getting to play with paint and sequins?!

This was painted with watercolor, gouache, and an embellishment of sequins were added at the end!

Contact me if this sparks your fancy! I would love to make you one too 🙂

Home is where your story begins
