Gratitude for PRIMED: a Painterly Exhibition at Red Door No. 5 Gallery

November is a time for reflection and gratitude and I wanted to take this moment to say "Thank you!"    


I have so many things to be thankful for this year - a freshly minted degree, an amazing partner in life, a wild dog named Lucius Fox, a new home (in a neighborhood where people wave to you when you get your mail, where am I Mayberry?!), a health baby girl in utero, endless streaming of Forensic Files on Netflix and OH YEAH, a busy studio practice!  


 My most valuable studio bud, Lucius.



I've been working hard since I made Tampa my full time residence in May of this year.  Much of that time has been devoted to figuring out how to move with a growing a human being.  


And yet despite all the fun (read: extreme sarcasm) that comes along with pregnancy, I've been able to craft this beautiful show, PRIMED, at the Red Door No. 5 Gallery.  It's the first show proposal that I spearheaded, featuring my favorite medium of all time - paint!  I'm super proud of it!  Along with fellow talents, Caitlin Albritton and Michele Francouer, PRIMED celebrates the innumerable ways that paint can be pushed around on a primed surface. 


Here's a bit of a inside scoop of the show, for my far flung readers.  All works are available for collectors to purchase. 


P.S. Thank you to Alyson Maier for the lovely installation!
