Art Deck 6

After a long break focused on other work, I have had a chance to work on my Art Deck - 52 small artworks, all under 6 x 6 inches and available at accessible prices ranging from $35-$55. These pieces, numbers 40 to 45, are now in my online shop. You can see all the other work from the Art Deck here.

The Friday Five

1. Follow your gut. Always.
2. If it seems too good to be true, it is.
3. Put in the work.
4. It is okay to say no.
5. Always be authentic. Always

PaperArtsy Paint Week

Last month, the PaperArtsy blog featured a series of projects made by 9 artists using one of my two, newly released sets of paint colors. 

The paint is Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics and the dry quickly to the most beautiful, matte surface imaginable. And it is also perfect for you journal as the pages never stick together and every pen works over the surface. You can see all my custom paint colors here.

Love the wide variety of creativity seen in the following projects. Click on each link for more pics, process shots, and details.
