Best sister ever cup story... I gave that cup to my sister for Christmas and she gave it back last weekend. I saw it in her cabinet at her house and I promptly used it for my coffee. I love watered down coffee. 20oz. Of water for 1 kcup. I forgot that my sister likes her coffee as thick and black as possible (just grounds, no water) so she never used the huge mug. She gave it back. Isn't she the best sister ever?

Hey, guys! This Saturday, I’ll be at Comicopolis (http://whiteoaklibrary.org/Comicopolis) in Lockport, IL! In previous years, I’ve had a table outside, but after the horrendous heat wave that hit the day of the con last year, I’ll have a table INSIDE this time! Come find my table and enjoy the air conditioning (and hopefully my art, too)!

Borders and broken systems. I ask myself why humans are made to be the way they are and whether we can change our destiny.

A simple wood-fired vase, made with about 9 pounds of white stoneware. The inclusion of salt towards the end of the firing drowned out some of the oranges and browns that might be expected on wood fired white clay, but left the facade with almost a crystalline shell with the faintest hint of blue

This piece was inspired by the pink bedroom I slept in when I stayed with my grandparents. My grandparents own a country home in Southern Illinois. Growing up we slept with the windows open in the summer time. My GrandMary had white curtains that hung over the windows and waking up to the ripple of the curtains from the open window is sheer bliss. The curtains diffuse the light in the room and with sleep filled eyes the room looks like cotton candy. This piece is named Nostalgia. #art #artist #chicagoartist #ridgwayil #summertimeart #upcomingartist #pinks #pinksaesthetic #theeisenhowereclectic #artoneisenhower #bliss

Proposal for Zhou Brothers sculpture for a Law firm in Los Angelos.

Quick sample / remix piece from yesterday. 🐭✂️ In the spirit of posting more fresh content, I’m gonna try to do these kind of design jams a little more often in between the usual posts of actual client work, etc.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 
They’re fun & folks seem to dig them more than reposts of the same projects that you’ve probably already seen 10x. 🤪
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 
Thanks for taking a look! 🏴‍☠️

A week from today I’ll be back in Vegas with my artist friends at #campminted! To say I’m excited is an understatement. 🙌🏻 Looking forward to hanging with my minted besties @velasquezstudio and @alisonjerrydesigns, upping my process video game with @laurabolter, taking a painting collage course with @jenniferdailyart, learning how to incorporate words into my art (and own my handwriting!) with @velasquezstudio and thanking @mnaficy in person for the incredible opportunities @minted has given my life!

Now I gotta go find something “Glamping” inspired to wear!

Our best fur-iend that started it all! Winston Churchill the Beagle. The first pet painting I did was of Winston as a gift for my mom. We all know he’s the favorite child 😉

Felt cute, not gonna delete l8er 💛 I’ve never had so much fun on a shoot. We climbed in jungle gyms and rolled around in the middle of streets. I left covered in dirt and it was great. Mark Miller @braveenoughproductions was a DREAM to work with. Can’t recommend him enough to my artist friends.

Felt cute, not gonna delete l8er 💛 I’ve never had so much fun on a shoot. We climbed in jungle gyms and rolled around in the middle of streets. I left covered in dirt and it was great. Mark Miller @braveenoughproductions was a DREAM to work with. Can’t recommend him enough to my artist friends.

I live right next to a jungle. 
That jungle started off by being a big dirt patch where over grown bushes had been ripped out. So I planted some bulbs and plants that looked amazing in the Spring, but have gone crazy with weeds this summer.

Yesterday I noticed my hydrangeas are starting to pop, but because the weeds were so tall, I could barely see them. This bloom had actually fallen over, and was touching the ground.

So I picked a few weeds, and a few more until you could see all the plants again. 
I’m trying to pull the weeds not just in my garden, but In my home, studio and classroom. Getting rid of the unnecessary in order to let the important things shine, is so necessary. Sometimes it can get away from us, but streamlining our lives is so important. 
I will continue on this journey probably for rest of the year, because I am in a roll. And this whole process is taking some time. But it feels great to get rid of the weeds, so that the real beauty can shine through. 
Funny how gardening can teach us so much 🌸 #weeding #gardenlove #hydrangeas #floralartist #artistsofig

22x30 inches 
2005
I have always worked in series to complete a stack of paper, a certain bound sketchbook, a stack of primed canvases, or bring a smoldering idea to fruition. Over 20+ years of narrative and figurative work, I shifted from Austin to Chicago, often working with newspaper imagery as well as sourced anonymous snapshots. For several years I worked in Acrylic on Paper, adding wallpapers and scraps of tickets, and many of the images came from looking for random contrasts in Kodachrome camera slides. This one was from two slides in the viewer, randomly: 1 from group of old schoolhouse slides, and the other from someone’s visit to a botanical garden.
.
These works have been in the flat files for many years and now am organizing for anticipated Fall move and am going to give these works some visibility. Open Studio in August for showing and selling the work and this majestic house.
DM if you see something that speaks to you.
