A Time to Grow

As you may be aware, I have been mostly away from the easel for the last 16 months. First I was wrapping up sales from my New York ArtExpo exhibition, then I moved to my beautiful new studio in Richmond Hill, Georgia, a stone throw from the Ogeechee River, fallowed by the birth of amazing son, Jude.

While I was still on maternity leave the owner of Sarah Jessica Fine Arts in contacted me and commissioned 7 new pieces and thereby putting me back to where I love being most… creating. (I am currently still working on these and below I include one of these completed pieces)

Today I’m at a place where I’m experiencing heights like never before in my life and I am inspired to let these echo into my work. So many people have asked me how becoming a mom changed my art. I have no idea. Though what I do know is that I have to be honest and sincere in what I put on the canvas and I certainly have changed considerably.

I believe no one should ever stop learning and to embrace my own continuing growth this week I have 1. signed up for a one-month photography course with Flying Photo School, 2. bought a History of European Art course from The Great Courses and 3. signed up for a weekend painting workshop with the Painting Experience in lovely Asheville, North Carolina. 

I am super excited about the next chapter in my work so let’s see where all this takes us…
