Art Up Phinneywood

For those of you who are in Seattle I am currently displaying a few art pieces for the month of June, including my Duke Ellington show and some new pieces, at Abrams Chiropractic Office in Greenwood. A chiropractors office? Yes kind of random but each month the Art Up Phinneywood art walk has 36 businesses along Greenwood Ave N feature all kinds of artists.

Below is a preview of pieces I have been working on. All are created using paint, cut paper and measure 5 x 5''.  I thoroughly enjoyed taking a break from my children's book and "playing" for a few weeks. Let me know what you think! Enjoy!

"Second Star to the Right and Straight on Til' Morning"

"Into the Woods to Grandmother's House"

"Elephants on parade"

"Fishing with Great Expectations"
I made this one because I have been obsessed with whales as of late


Below is a map of the Phinneywood art walk. Check out 
to see the different artists that will be featured and where.

Here's a quick gouache study of feathers I created just for fun. Lately I've been working on drafts for my upcoming children's book "Monday is Wash Day" that will be finished in November and published next year by Ripple Grove Press (yea!!). I've been stewing over the drafts for a few months now and to give myself a break I broke out my paints. I miss painting so much and it felt so good to play with color and texture and let loose.

and then I turned it blue in Photoshop

My design is currently being feature on a t shirt for Check it out! The artists featured receive royalties for every t shirt that is purchased. My t shirt is up until March 9.

It's so much fun to see my design on a t shirt!
