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!

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.

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!

Country’s BBQ – Vintage Greyhound Logo

Yesterday I had the honor of painting the iconic vintage greyhound-turned-dining room of Country’s BBQ on Broadway. I am so excited that people will see a little something of mine everyday! And if it was done well enough, they may not even realize it as they will think it was there the whole time.

I mean, how many artists can say they got to paint on a 1947 silverside greyhound bus? That people eat in? See more pictures here.

Sugar Skulls for Free Art Friday (last week)

Last week’s them for Free Art Friday was butterflies, but I wanted to do something besides simply butterflies. So I drew up a few sugar skull ladies and gave them little swarms of butterflies! I dropped these in Uptown Columbus during the St Patrick’s Day festivities. Hope they went to a good home!

Finishing Week 1 of my 365 challenge

In an effort to not be so cluttery, I am thinking I will post by the week here. I will still post daily on my Instagram and Facebook.

On day 6 I had spent most of the day in the car driving all around the state of Georgia, but I made sure to get a quick painting in before bed. I only put in about half an hour, but I don’t want to miss a day!
