It has been a busy winter working and skiing everyday at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, teaching painting classes at the Art Association, and organizing fabric library. Living in Jackson, WY has presented more wonderful opportunities than I can juggle.
Spring and summer are shaping up to be just as busy. I will be teaching evening classes in watercolor and plein air painting, helping with art camps, working at the interior design company, and gardening! Whew! I will also be doing the occasional figure modeling and portrait sitting. Not to mention all the fun of mountain biking and whitewater kayaking. Its going to be awesome.
I am excited to be participating in the Jackson Hole Art Fair this summer! I am lucky enough to be one of the 150 artists picked out of over 800 applicants. This art fair draws over 11,000 visitors, and takes no commission! I will be selling my paintings, prints of my work, and handmade pillows and bags. I am really looking forward to talking with the other artists participating from all over the country. It’s going to be a blast!
After seeing my artwork in Studio Visit Magazine, I received an invitation to have my work featured in American Artwork Magazine. This juried book features 260 artists and is distributed to 3000 galleries and interior designers across the country. I’m happy to have this opportunity for my artwork to reach a wider audience of art patrons.
I have also been continuing my journey in my new body of work, Flow. This experiment in pouring and moving liquid oil paint has been intriguing, and I am still developing an artist statement as I continue to practice – talking about this new work warrants a separate blog post, but here are a few more paintings in the series. Hopefully I’ll add a new page on the website for these soon. The first painting in this series has already been sold and will be shipped in a week. Right now at the studio I have I have 3 finished paintings and three more in various stages of development.
