Fall Update

Last week I had my first studio visit with my mentor for school and it was so helpful. In Chicago I was able to get feedback from other artists at pretty much any moment so it was sort of a difficult transition to go from that to having little access to feedback again. My mentor gave me a few assignments and some questions to ponder over and I’m very excited to get started.

Last week I also started teaching an after school art class for Roanoke City. This means I will be teaching five to six different classes every week for a couple months. The kids were great and I’m looking forward to working with them every week :]

I’m working on so many different things right now. Here are two!

I’m also working on a commissioned painting, some show submissions, and a secret side project! More info soon. Thanks for reading!

Playing with Surfaces: Yupo

abstract yupo

I painted on Yupo paper for the first time when I was in middle school and I thought it was such a cool surface to work with. I didn’t use it again until recently when I was in┬áChicago. I was shopping around for a variety of surfaces to experiment on and I was immediately drawn to the Yupo paper. You can get some really cool effects on this non-absorbent surface. I plan on doing a lot more work with it.
