Art Gone Wild Final Pieces

I wanted to share with you guys the final pieces – both framed and unframed – from this month’s event at Zoo Atlanta. What an awesome experience this was! I miss going to the zoo every morning to paint.

Art Gone Wild @ Zoo Atlanta

The Art Gone Wild Fundraiser took place over the weekend kicking off with an art show on Friday night, and a two day sale over the weekend. It was such a joy to be a part of this event, and I can’t wait for next year as I hope to be selected as an artist for Zoo Atlanta again!

Art Gone Wild Paint Out Week

I had a fantastic week meeting artists and animals alike as I started my collection for the show next weekend! I hope you enjoy these paintings and sketches. I will be sharing the framed pieces soon!

Momocon 2017

I had a blast at Momocon this year! It was my 4 year old’s first convention, and we cosplayed together. I was a Ghostbuster, and she was Janine. I think we will make Momocon a tradition. Here are a few pics – you can see more on my facebook page!

Last Minute Superhero!

I was able to pull together a quick costume with fun props and makeup in the few hours before the Markster Con Superhero Pub Crawl where I was a registration volunteer. I enjoyed wearing this so much I might even bring it to Momocon!

Reimagine 13th Street Celebration

Last Thursday I participated in the Reimagine 13th Street event with several other artists, vendors, and food trucks. This event is “to help residents “reimagine” what the corridor could look like with fewer, slower traffic lanes, on-street parking and revived businesses along the route.” (Read more here).

In addition to setting up some artwork and jewelry to sell, I also helped Midtown Columbus prepare for the celebration by painting the windows of the mostly empty center to give people an idea of what could be there.

Treklanta

I cannot believe that I forgot to share this with you guys! Last month I was a guest artist at Treklanta. I was stationed in the main ballroom and did live painting of the panels and the events. Special thanks to Mel’S. Creations for having me. See more pictures in my facebook abum here.

FanFest 2017

I had a blast at FanFest last weekend with my makerspace ColumbusMakesIT! While they held down the fort in the teen area with cool robots and legobot battles, I hosted a few panels on cosplay and participated in the celebrity costume challenge. Thank you for having us, Columbus Public Library!

Art Gone Wild – Muse Day!

I am SOOOOO excited about starting my journey with Art Gone Wild! I had my muse day last week, and even though I was sick I made the best of it. I took a zillion pictures and have already started sketches. Paint out Week is June 5-9 and I will have lots of fun stuff to share then.

Artahoochee First Friday May 2017

It was cold and rainy (in May in Georgia, believe it or not!) but we still made it happen! I was a featured artists and created a giant interactive coloring book wall with the help of my friend Jill. And I totally used this as an excuse to dress up and do crazy makeup!
