New studio and new paintings!

 

I’m a little late announcing this, but in July I started renting a shared studio space! It’s been amazing to be no longer working from home and having the extra space to spread out all my materials and scraps of paper while I’m working on a project. I’ve been busy and productive since then which feels SO good. AND I have lots of new exciting collage paintings to show for it!

I’ve been doing more newspaper collage cityscapes as well as branching out and experimenting with more abstract pieces. For a (mostly) complete list of my new pieces, check out my portfolio here.

This weekend, November 23rd and 24th, I’ll be showing off my new paintings at Brickbottom Open Studios. The Brickbottom Artists’ Association is a very cool live/work space for artists in Somerville. I’m an affiliate member, meaning while I don’t have a studio there, I get to show my paintings there when they have events.

The event is from 12pm to 6pm both Saturday and Sunday at 1 Fitchburg St, Somerville. There will be dozens of artists showing their work all around the building, as well as musicians and dance performances happening in the lobby. I’ll be set up in the hallway on the second floor behind the elevators! I really hope you can stop by–it sounds like a very fun event and I’m excited to have an opportunity to show off work that I’m really proud of.

As a teaser, here’s a triptych of Somerville Ave that I just finished:

Getting ready for open studios

I registered for Somerville Open Studios for the first time this year, and I can’t wait! It takes place the first weekend in May (May 5th and 6th), and I have a lot of paintings to finish before then. I am always most productive when I have a deadline though, so I’m looking forward to seeing what I can accomplish.

So far this winter I’ve finished two new construction vehicle paintings and started a third. Now I’m trying to decide whether to keep on going with my construction vehicle series or take a break and try something else!
