Halloween and fall paintings
The other day online, I saw a meme that said something about how we’ve all been conditioned to love summer because that’s when we had the most freedom as kids and teens, but that the season itself is actually “atrocious.” It’s really causing me to reflect on my love for summer; we’ve been lucky this… Continue reading Halloween and fall paintings

A Very Flowery Spring + Prep for Two Summer Markets!

I had a tent up at Made Fest, which is part of Pygmalion, an annual literary and music festival in Champaign-Urbana. I honestly spent a big part of the last… Continue reading Back on the Market: Made Fest 2021
Finding Resources to Help Your Art Business: Networking
As I've mentioned, I'm all about making 2020 my year for this art business endeavor, and a big part of that for me has been realizing that I can't do it all on my own. So, out of necessity, I've been on a path to discover some cheap or free resources (hello, local library) and...… Continue reading Finding Resources to Help Your Art Business: Networking

Guess Who’s Participating in an Arts Festival!
Hint: It's me, obviously. I've been asked about this piece a lot, and I finally got some prints! Sized at 8" x 10" tall. I got my art prints back today, and despite it costing a bit more than I was hoping, I'm really happy with the results. Several of them have already been claimed… Continue reading Guess Who’s Participating in an Arts Festival!
