I’m in the process of starting a separate blog for my painting and drawing work so if this is a duplicate post for you, I’m sorry! I just wanted to share this one and say that if you are interested in more studio-related news from me, you can get those posts from by signing up here. My plan is to keep this space focused on travel and place!

Ancient Orchards abstract painting
So my news today is that there are still a couple of days to preview and bid on my painting (above) as well as the work of some other amazing artists in the MCAD Auction.

I got my MFA at MCAD (the Minneapolis College of Art and Design) and was honored to be invited to participate in this event amongst such good company. Proceeds raise funds for the college’s scholarship program and the live event on May 29 is hosted by Christie’s. Tickets are available for purchase if you’re in Minneapolis on Friday!
