ART AROUND ADAMS - ART WALK

Celebrate the start of summer on this two-mile stretch of Adams Avenue where art, music and street performances fill every nook and cranny. Art exhibits fill shops and restaurants; multiple stages fill the air with music and comedy; and it’s a family friendly event with both kid zones and beer gardens! I’ll be hanging out most of the day at MRH Interiors in Normal Heights, doing some live collaborative painting, and guiding a small take-home art project. I will also make an appearance at Kiko & Sven in Kensington, so check their schedule too! Not only will I have lots of new artwork for sale at each location, but both of these shops have lots of beautiful items for you and your home. Hope you can come by!

Abstract Workshop

ABSTRACT PATTERNS WORKSHOP

Love abstract paintings, but can’t afford to buy them? Need a pop of color on that gallery wall, but can’t find the right colors? Come paint (at two different locations in San Diego!) with me and create two patterned abstracts with liquid acrylics. I will provide you with several color palettes and pattern choices then guide you through the creation of your patterned pieces of art on paper. If you love simple abstracts & modern or boho design, you will love this easy workshop for any level of artist. And the best part is you will have two pieces of art to frame and keep for yourself or give one away to a friend...or that special lady in your life for Mother’s Day!

"BYOJ” PAINT YOUR JEANS WORKSHOP – ART LOUNGE ON 101

Make a fashion statement by wearing your own art! Why pay those ridiculous prices for painted designer jeans at department stores and boutiques when you can make your own! Bring a fave pair of jeans (you know the ones you feel fabulous in!) and we will amp them up with painted brushstrokes, splatters, markings and good ole finger painting. Then we’ll embellish with a bit of embroidery for an extra creative kick! You’ll walk away with a hand painted pair of one-of-a-kind jeans that will be the envy of everyone you know. Bring a friend, meet some new friends and be ready to get messy and have some fun. Head to the Art Lounge on 101 website below to sign up today (space is limited!)

"LOVE WINS" – ART ESCAPE

People ask me all year long if I have any “heart art” left from Valentine’s Day, so this year, I decided to open up my studio for an extra HeArt Escape! We will experiment with acrylic paints, various textures, and lots of tricks, tools and techniques. At the end of the escape, you will go home with a one-of-a-kind 10" x 10” piece of heart art (similar to the photo) and a full heart! Let’s head into the month of March with an evening of relaxation, creation and play. Grab a friend and join me for this fun experience, but sign up quickly as I only have space for six "artists". Go to my Art Escape page to register, or contact me to plan a private event if this night doesn't work for you.

FIRST FRIDAY, OCEANSIDE ART WALK

My sister and her family have lived in Oceanside for almost 30 years, so I’ve spent lots of time in and around this very northern part of San Diego. When I was given the opportunity to show my artwork at Oceanside’s First Friday Art Walk this month, I was more than happy to participate! Because of the colorful nature of my work (and a tendency to add lots of whimsy and organic shapes and images), I was paired with Seaside Flowers in Artist Alley. I think the art and beautiful floral arrangements will be a sweet pair! I’d love for you to stop by for a look while wandering the streets of the Art Walk and taking in the summer ocean air...I’ll be there from 5-8!

Friday, August 5, 2016 5 to 8 p.m.
Location: Seaside Flowers
