I cannot believe how fast 2018 is speeding past. Just like most everybody, I’m super busy! I am painting a ton, teaching classes and also trying new things. For about the past 6 months I have been going to a ceramics studio in the Waterloo Arts District of Cleveland. Most of my work has consisted of hand building small objects such as ring holders, platters and such. I felt I was ready for the challenge of throwing clay on the wheel.
Hahaha! It’s so not easy and frustrating……in fact it was absolutely Humbling….
I have been painting for the 30 in 30 twice a year for a at least a few years and love the way it jumpstarts my creativity. This year the challenge begins in February instead of January ( yay!) and the theme is “all things wedding”. The goal for me is to paint one wedding themed study every day! This year I will find myself filling the calendar with “Live Wedding Painting” dates creating forever cherished original works for couples’ special day….in 2018 and beyond❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Join me for the Bridal Event hosted by LaMalfa Party center in Mentor, Ohio on Friday, January 19th, 2018 where I will be the only Live Event Painter demonstrating the most unique and timeless art of Live Wedding Painting! Oh….and any other wedding vendor imaginable will be there to show you what is possible in all things WEDDING!
Dresses and flowers and music…….Oh my!
thanks so much to all who attended and hosted “Paint Your Pet” events in 2017!
Dates for 2018 include April 8th to benefit Paws And Prayers Rescue in Cuyahoga Falls

2017 “Paint Your Pet” was a busy year averaging two to three events per month and raising approximately $14 ,500 for area rescue organization’s and animal shelters.
