Back to basics

I’ve put away my palette knives after two whole years of using them primarily to make lines, cuts, and texture on my paintings. I never knew I’d love using knives (of all things!) to express myself on canvas. It was pretty fun until I just got tired of the angst and grime in my work. […]

New art project

Canvas stretching! Not what I had in mind but oh, well. I guess this means I should go back to reading for now. I inadvertently bought the wrong size canvas cloth for my new art project, which was super annoying! I rarely go elsewhere for my materials and usually go to Blick Art for my […]

When did I become an artist?

I’ve been heavily awestruck recently by the wave of artistic events and happenings in my life that I just found myself asking this big question–when did I become an Artist?! No, seriously. Mind Games No. 06 at University Art store in Sacramento, CA   I started asking close friends and loved ones this personal thought […]

Loops

I haven’t written in a while and thought it would be good to catch up! I also forgot to write about the recent artwork series I have created called Mind Games. I presented it as part of second Saturday in August and have since been painting additional new pieces to add to the collection. The […]

Flows like Water

I’ve been doing a lot more watercolor paintings. I must admit, it is pretty sweet. I have been learning to work with the “permanence” of the material and use it to my advantage.  It’s been a lot more freeing to be able to work with watercolor, something I did not expect. With acrylic, I’ve been […]

Worth

Hello world! I know, I’ve been slow with my updates. July has been a busy month of work training and transitions for me. Hope you didn’t miss me too much! I have a confession to make–I’ve been painting a bit day by day, that is…at least as much as I can squeeze in here […]

Buurp

Just finished the Rick & Morty art commission from my wonderful friend Nery! It was such a fun project and I was surprised how into it I was. I guess it’s a good breath of fresh air from the usual stuff I paint, and it is structured enough that I have a goal/concept in mind. […]

Sci-chedelic!

Currently working on a sci-fi commission painting and it is a mind trip. I love the color palette for this piece–it’s so fun! And who knew making paintings about outer space came so naturally to me? Still currently a work in progress, so I’ll be updating here again when I can. It’ll be changing […]

Summertime Fun

Hi everyone! This summer is currently off to a great start! I’m very elated about some recent good news and progress in my life–new condo, new job, and new art store business. I’m trying to learn from previous mistakes that have caused me much heartache. And so, being older and wiser (now being 30 and […]

Q&As and Interior Demo Photos

Hi everyone! Since the launch of my art store, people have been asking about specific questions related to what the paintings are made of, what certain sizes look like in real life, etc. I hope to address some of these questions in this post! All the paintings for sale in my online art store are […]
