Merrick Talent and Pete Springer Do it Again

Had a fantastic shoot at Designer, Shelly West's house. Her outfits were edgy and the models were fantastic. Pete Springer is a lighting master. I've never seen anyone move so quickly. Kelli Merrick is a queen at pulling these gigs together. Thank you all! I love my job :)

Wrapping up Summer

Summer is coming to a close and we are moving into the lovely crisp days of fall. Honestly, I'm looking forward to the cozy days indoors and will hopefully generate some new characters.

Today is my last First thursday for a while. I will be at Last Thursday and starting October I will be participating in the HIP Happenings holiday art fairs. Check my website for new creations...

Thanks to everyone who saw me through this first summer of art fairs and sales. We did it!!!

Morning Glory

Wow! What a great relationship I have with Merrick Talent! I was asked to do makeup for the lovely Bernadette for her spot on the Morning Show today. See show clip here (she's the gorgeous redhead).

First Thursday

I was so honored to get to share a booth at First Thursday with good friend and inspiring children's illustrator/author, artist, song writer extraordinaire, Johanna Wright. We made a great duo and both raked in some nice sales.

Thanks again, to the hubbs (Todd) for all his help. And to Cori and Zeyneb for coming out and showing their Support!

Thursdays this August are going to rock. We will be at the other UAN location in the Pearl District near whole foods each thursday for the duration of August! It's been a great summer, but I have to say, I am looking forward to the quiet fall and winter months.

Designs from the Past

It's hard to get away from a good design. I had originally created this for the Mooncakes and Pomegranates event for the Portland Classical Chinese Garden but when good friend Chris Linn saw he wanted to use it for thank you notes for his studio: Uliko. So with a few minor adjustments I was able to reuse this design. I hope it doesn't turn into my 'one hit wonder' :)

Sail Boats and Art Fairs

So the Milwaukie Art Daze was really tiny and hardly any traffic but at least we got out there and tried it out. This is a year of learning. The photoshoot with Merrick Talent was a much more successful. After moving the shoot from Astoria to the Columbia Gorge we had a lovely shoot with photographer Pete Springer. Here a few of my "behind the scene" shots. Check out Pet's Blog to see "the good stuff".

Good Things

My lovely friend, Cori Jacobs is a talented, up and coming artist. This summer she has been exploring the world of pottery and finding ways to transfer her paintings onto ceramics. One of her pieces didn't quite meet her standards so she let me keep it. It totally meets my standards! Cori has been invited to New York for a benefit show sometime in the spring. Check out her website on my favorite people link on the right. Go Cori!
