I decided it was time that I start blogging a little bit more. As an artist I am more visual than verbal, and tend to post when I have a finished product. I forget how interesting it can be to see an artist at work!
I am a working artist in New York, but I am also a working art instructor for kids, teens and adults. I love my job and spend most of my time in The Art Studio where I work.
Many artists are night owls who tend to stay up late and paint into the early morning. I am the opposite. I am one of those rare, morning people and I like to make the most of my day.
I wake up every morning and head to The Art Studio and paint for 3-5 hours before art class begins. Then I teach all kinds of art, to all age groups, for 3-8 hours a day! I am surrounded by creativity all the time!
I absolutely love my co-workers! Working in an environment of artists allows us to bounce ideas off of each other, give and receive constant, honest critique and learn new techniques from one another. Not to mention the support we give one another. MEH art.
I also have amazing family and friends that are not part of my art family. Although they also are a wonderful support coming to all my shows and doing endless modeling for my paintings! My boyfriend Grey, is a prime example who has made a few debuts in my artwork over the years.
And of course the painting I am working on now!
And some love for the embarrassing shots, love my best friend!
I couldn't do it without you guys. Forever grateful.
