Hola. Commo esatas? Bien bien!!
I am here at Altos de Chavon on an artist and art teaching residency in La Romana, Dominicana Republica.
It is incredible, and I am feeling so inspired and grateful to be here. I have been making so many paintings trying to capture the overwhelming beauty in the nature here. Also rediscovering monoprinting and other printmaking techniques and enjoying that. I am here til September 1st. 🙂

Hi friends! My Kickstarter campaign for my upcoming artist residency in La Romana, DR has 6 days remaining! Thanks for the support, pledge if you can! Great way to get a piece for a good price and help support my teaching career at the same time. 🙂

Hi friends,

It was a huge honor to have two works selected to be included in this evenings incredible art event, the TriBeca Ball!! The event is always an outstanding fundraiser for my alma mata: The New York Academy of Art. As an alumni, I am honored to be participating, and although I am VERY nervous to go to a red carpet art event ALONE with actual art stars and celebrities surrounding me, I will go proudly and hope I do not fall on my butt while attempting to walk in heels (not my forte).

The work below titled “I Just Woke Up” was selected to hang, and in addition I have a smaller painting in the coinciding alumni pop-up show. See everyone tonight!
