Ladies drawing night on this sunny evening- I feel lucky to have found so many wonderful humans to be surrounded by here in Seattle AND to be so creatively stimulated ✨
LET’S DANCE!!! 💚💛💙💖🖤
This is the outdoor piece of my installation at the Roger Smith Hotel! Stay tuned for more images of the indoor walls, but the installation is open and will be up for a few months! And this wall is located on 47th / Lexington so stop by if you’re near! And if you want to dance with me, leave a 🕺🏻💃🏼 below!!! 👇🏻
BIG THANKS!!! To @rshotel for having me and @nicolemgordon for curating!!! 🙏🏻😍⚡️This wall was painted with @montana_colors @montanacans spray paint.
Everything starts out blank. I love creating art digitally and non digitally. My condo mural series begins!
I don't think I've ever posted a full-size picture of the mural painting I did for @miliandcocafe back in March. There you go for anyone who is interested in my #wallmural. I can also share a bit of my process of doing a mural painting. - After talking to my client about the brief, I sketch out the layout and design on paper. - Once I'm happy with the concept, I go on actually do the painting still on paper. So I know how I approach colours, brush strokes etc. - Then I scan my artwork and digitise them, make the final design and send it to my client. - When everybody's happy, then it's the fun and most enjoyable part, the actual painting! The reason this is my favourite part is that all the heavy lifting is already done upfront, I know exactly what I need to paint. I normally just put on my headphone, listening to my audiobook, and paint away!
Do you find this kind of process sharing is interesting and useful Leave a comment and let me know!
Throwback Thursday to this older #homwork piece because 1. I had decided I didn’t like it anymore, and deleted it, but now I’ve decided I think I do like it And 2. I have left my taxes to the absolute LAST possible minute and am only getting my shit together right now - so you best believe there will be some crying in my immediate future 😭 #fml #whyamilikethis
• D O GG O • finished this commission piece today. It is a pet portrait with a bit of a trippy twist.
After 6 days in a row of sanding, priming and applying gesso to the panels of my upcoming mural #stewardsofthesoil, I'm ready to start the artwork. The final size will be 16x19' and will be installed in Northern California in May.
This is a real post. The real and the dirty, literally. I've been working around the clock painting murals in this homeless shelter. I have several other murals I'm suppose to be starting soon, and so many other things on my plate. I really havent slept in a week working 16 to 18 hour days. Forget the chance to shower and wash my hair. My mom would scold me. A friend snapped these photos of me working and at first I was like these are awful. Look at how greasy my hair is. But, I've realized you know sometimes that's how it is. I don't always look put together all the time working so hard. And there you go a true snapshot into my life at times. Maybe I should by dry shampoo, haha. #workinglife #workhard #muralartist #muralist #mypdxlife #portland #portlandartist #pdxartist #pdxmurals
Today was the 2018 opening of the Durrell Museum in Twillingate, Newfoundland. It was also a long awaited moment for me, the unveiling of the new Great Auk Exhibit that I worked so hard on this past fall. I didn't make the Auks, that was done by acclaimed artist Paul Summerskill, and was graciously donated to the Durrell Museum by his wife Tina after Paul's passing last spring.
Paul was a Canadian artist from Ontario who made his summer home in Durrell. Paul had always intended to give these birds to the Durrell Museum, and to create a habitat for them - an exhibit that showed their Funk Island home.
That's where I came in - I was asked to paint their habitat.
Here's to you, Paul and Tina Summerskill, your beautiful Auks finally have their forever home.
Thank you Durrell Museum, for this tremendous opportunity.

А ведь есть такие люди о которых вы не знаете, не замечаете но почти в каждый день сталкивайтесь с ними. Они в каждый день превращают и переодевают наш антураж и стараются сделать мир красивее, в тех красках как они видят, где-то очень нестандартно и непонятно, а где-то красиво и впечатляюще! Работы этого человека вы видели часто в нашем городе, но кто он Почему он это делает мы себя никогда не спрашивали! Я предлагаю вам остановиться и рассмотреть каждую из его картин, каждую! Ведь он творец и в каждой своей работе закладывает глубокий смысл! Кто знает кто он
