Incredibly excited to be showing these paintings along with others at the art hall in Aero, Denmark. It should be a wonderful show with a number of international artists including @sam_born_stein the opening is next Friday June 1 if you’re in that part of the world. Thanks to @gittejarsbo for putting the exhibition together.

My brain is all over the place today, thankfully painting’s the only thing that overrides that. Flowers still need some work but I’m feeling how this is turning out... #artistlife #art #painting #ink #gouache #liquidacrylic #watercolor #doitonyupo #nofilter #paintingoftheday #wip #braintornado

Day dreaming about beautiful places and beautiful people... can’t wait to get back to Bargemon. Thanks for the inspiration @suzannescott

Let me just make a quick painting...... then I choose a super detailed source photo and didn’t edit nearly enough out... have lost the ability to see the whole painting.... so I guess it’s lunch time

This piece is starting to come together, definitely fun trying to figure out define dark interior spaces...

Definitely still needs some work... but it was one of those strange images I needed to figure out in paint...

And thinking about matriarchies makes me think about this painting of my grandma with my dad as a baby...

Happy Mother’s Day to all the badass moms out there, but especially to mine.

Old work even older version of myself... .

Getting ready to send a bunch of work to Denmark for an exhibition, I’ve always really liked this painting and don’t think I’ve ever shown it before...

Exhausted but figured it would be better to try and squeeze in a painting before teaching than a nap.... still needs work but not a bad start after a couple weeks off...

So happy that all these paintings have found new homes. It was a wonderful weekend and a pleasure to meet so many new people and have the amazing support from the @theotherartfair team. Not to get too sentimental before the cocktail hour but it’s been an intense couple of weeks filled with both the good and bad and I wouldn’t be able to make it through without the support of all the amazing people in my life. It takes a village and I feel fortunate to have the very best village around me...
