Dear Diary: Pinch Me | Based on a True Story
Watching a great tv show and squealing when you see your own artwork on-screen will hereby never get old.
If you've streamed Peacock's new original series, Based on a True Story (starring Kaley Cuoco and Chris Messina), then you've seen my artwork on TV which is just bananas-town FUN.
Announcing my first-ever solo gallery exhibition! Weeeeeeeeee! This is an exciting NEW body of work for me. After the chaos of the last couple years, I found myself drawn to home....to my roots. Revisiting the textures and feelings of growing up in the projects of South Boston and the things that truly light me up. This work was born.
So thrilled to have been interviewed recently for an article in ShoutOut SoCal magazine, “Why They Do What They Do”. Big scream energy!
It was great to connect with Patrick Harris of Voyage Group to share my heart and story behind choosing an artist’s path. He reached out while I was showing at Jackalope Art Fair in Burbank this past December and I couldn’t be more proud and excited - such a cool opportunity and publication to be part of.
When you meet a renowned art critic and Pulitzer Prize winner IRL, you take selfies.
AM I RIGHT?! What a night! I think this means we're friends????
I had the privilege of attending Live Talks LA in Santa Monica, CA for a night with Jerry Saltz, led by Irwin Miller (accomplished designer and architect), and UMM it was as phenomenal as it sounds. (Blurry pictures be damned!)
Imagine my complete and utter shock
I'm standing inside my booth at Jackalope Pasadena and am approached by a fun, kind man who asks if I want to be a featured artist at the West Elm store in Beverly Hills. After the pee ran down my leg, I confidently said, "YES".
