Cloak and Dagger42" x 42", oil on canvas, 2015
2015 was a big year! I made the leap to painting full time! A terrifying leap at that, but it has been wonderful. Having the time to be in my studio day in and day out,and really focus on my work, has allowed me to explore new ideas, experiment with material, produce more work, and take on more commissions. In all of 2015, I completed over 50 new drawings + paintings! I can't wait to see what 2016 brings.
After my English Channel swim in August (I made it!), Joe and I moved to Washington DC! We certainly miss Baltimore, but DC has been a lot of fun. It's the first time in years my studio is outside of my living space, which I like a lot. My studio is big and bright - wonderful for painting. I love guests, so come visit my studio anytime!
Lots of exciting things ahead for 2016. I have a lot of new work in the works, lots of ideas, and plans for the coming months. 2016 brings some excited exhibitions as well- I will be back in Baltimore for a group show at the Creative Alliance in February, and in May, I will have all new work for a solo show at Susan Calloway Fine Arts in DC. Can't wait!
Cloak and Dagger, above, is the last painting I finished in 2015. Cheers to a great year! Stay tuned for what 2016 brings. Happy New Year! Cheers!
