Oh, hi! Somehow its February already. So many new things are happening, and it's been a bit of a whirlwind to keep my head wrapped around it all. Good news is that it's all WONDERFUL stuff, I'll tell you all about it...
First of all, I am showing my Sill Series in Gallery 1056 at Redux this month! Opening night is Friday, February 23rd from 6-8pm, I couldn't be more excited. My talented friend BJ of Haegur, the mobile plant shop, will be doing a special installation alongside my pieces. He'll also be be parking "Fern" the plant truck in Redux for opening night! Art and plants in one place, what could be better??
I still have so much to do in these next two weeks, but I luckily have the help of my sweet friend Paige Feigley. Paige is a fellow Redux artist and is curating this show (thank goodness, cuz I need her calming direction and expertise). We have so many fun ideas, I cant wait to see them all come together. I hope you'll join us for opening night, it is free and open to the public.
So while we're working away at the Sills Show, I have also started teaching courses! My high school students have totally blown me away with their talent, and my "Florals in Oils" course has been so much fun. I have a new appreciation for teachers of ALL subjects. It's tough stuff, but truly rewarding. I am excited to plan out some more courses and really get in my teaching groove. Sign up for my newsletter and check out my new events page to keep up-to-date with all course and workshop opportunities!
Oh yea, I also got married! Dylan and I eloped to the Charleston courthouse this January and it was perfection. We brought the fur babes with us (we wanted to celebrate as a happy family ASAP) and we had the uber talented Lizzy Ervin with us to capture the day. All of her photos are breathtaking, I will be following up with another post so I can share more of her amazing work.
So 2018 has been pretty epic so far! Hope everyone else is off to a great start too :)
