I'm so pleased and flattered that my window art appeared on a local news segment this morning about The Craft Clique, in Secaucus, NJ.
The Craft Clique is a wonderful place, and the owner, Lisa, is the sweetest. I loved working with her to achieve a window and door that really represent her business, which provides art, craft, cooking, baking, dance, and other classes for kids (and paint 'n' sip classes for adults too!), and just has a wonderful energy.
You can tell she loves what she does, and loves the kids. Watch the segment on the News 12 NJ site here.
I'm so proud to have my window painting featured in this article this year about holiday cheer, and to have been part of Substance Salon & Barberspa's decorating team, helping them achieve their first place win for best storefront in Rutherford, NJ's annual holiday contest! I'm so happy for them too; they're wonderful and creative people!
I was featured as one of the artists on the Bogota Blog for being chosen to be one of ten artists to participate in Ridgefield Park's 2020 Mural Mania event. Canvases were donated by the Ridgefield Park Arts Association, and the paints were donated by the DPW, where they had been dropped for recycling. It was a wonderful day out in the sun, surrounded by art and artists.
My painting is entitled "Endangered," and features seven endangered and critically endangered animals from around the world: An Asian Elephant, a Regent Honey-Eater and a Honey Blue-Eye from Australia, a Little Brown Bat from North America, a Cross-River Gorilla from the Nigeria-Cameroon border, an Angonoka Tortoise from Madagascar, and an Amur Leopard from southeastern Russia and northern China.
The pieces are all available for purchase, with 50-100% of the proceeds going to the Arts Association and the St. Michael's Food Bank. Currently, they're on display at Art Mora, until being relocated to various businesses around town until sold. This painting sold!
My face painting was featured in the Summer 2019 issue of Stampington's absolutely gorgeous Mingle Magazine! The magazine can be purchased off the rack at Barnes & Noble, as well as online at Stampington, Barnes & Noble, and Amazon!
