i’m so excited to finally be working again after a looooong 3 month hiatus!!
i’ve been working on a new series of paintings and art dolls that are, obviously inspired by my beloved New Orleans…
this is the first completed doll out of 3 that i have been working on the past few weeks. she will be available through The Green Eyed Gator gallery in New Orleans at the end of September.

we are finally settled in our new place and the studio is up and running again!! i’ve been working on a series of little paintings ( mixed media on wood panels) that will be available at The Green Eyed Gator gallery in New Orleans at the end of September. 

I am really missing home, and have been pouring over old carnival photos. But i guess the verdant lushness of miami has crept in as well…

Went back to this one today. MUCH happier with her now… #mixedmedia #painting #stars #clouds #portrait #lowbrow #carandache #acrylicpainting #texture #learningcurve
