Two Big Announcements!

Announcement One: Printmaking Studio Kickstarter!

For the last four years, I have made my living creating art using pen and ink.  About two or three years ago I got really brave and began experimenting with watercolor and other forms of pigment which helped me grow as an artist and increase my ability to communicate through art.

Finally, the time has come for me to take another step in my career.  Starting next month, I will ask for your help to start an intaglio printmaking studio.  I will be running a campaign on Kickstarter and I will need your support to back and spread the word about my project. Look for details about rewards and prizes coming soon!

I've spent the last month or so gathering a group of talented individuals to help me run my campaign. We spent the day yesterday filming and fine-tuning my Kickstarter video so stay tuned to my Facebook, Instagram, and blog pages for more information as the day gets closer!

Announcement Two: Teaching Art in Italy!

I have been invited by Lisa Statkis of Lisa's Gryphon to teach a pen and watercolor sketchbook journaling class in November of 2016.  I'll be looking for students to join me for an all-inclusive trip to a beautiful 16th-Century Italian villa in Tuscany, where we will be drawing and painting everything we can possibly lay our eyes on.  Again, stay tuned to Facebook, Instagram, and this blog for more information in the future.
