SOURCED. ARTIST RESIDENCY

Live near or visiting the lovely coastal town of Laguna Beach? Come visit me & my art during my two-month residency at Sourced and take a look at my newest collection of work, the “Pacific Coast Highway” Series, in person! This isn’t a true residency, as I won’t be there 24/7, but my PCH Series will be on display the entire time and I’ll be attending the events listed below. During the pop-up, I’ll have small “PCH” paper color studies for sale AND I’ll be live painting on a large canvas for you to see my process. The details for the workshop are in the event listed above. I’m so looking forward to this opportunity to share my story, my artwork and my perspective with the local Laguna community. Hope you can join me at one of the events!

Happy Hour Workshop

ABSTRACT PAINTING "HAPPY HOUR" WORKSHOP

I'll be hosting this workshop at the adorable Sourced Collective in Laguna Beach, so if you're in the area this one is a must! My "Pacific Coast Highway" series is hanging on all the walls at Sourced and will be the starting point for our PCH abstract landscape. With several color palettes to choose from and lots of images for you to use as inspiration for your piece, everyone will choose a favorite spot along this iconic road and create an abstract rendition on a 10x10 canvas. This is a unique guided experience, as each person will create his/her own painting, rather than everyone painting the exact same artwork. Wine and light snacks will be served...the perfect creative happy hour before heading out for dinner!

Abstract Painting Workshop: October 6 | 4 - 6
Cost per person: $75 | space limited to 12 participants
Includes: all supplies, wine & light snacks   SORRY, SOLD OUT

Workshop

PAINTING & FRAMING WORKSHOP

This workshop includes two creative projects in one fun night! I’m going to teach you how to make the trendy wooden dowel picture frame (shown here) AND paint two modern striped abstracts (one multi-colored and one ombré) to hang inside it! The frames will be pre-assembled, but I’ll give a tutorial and you choose the wood stain color and leather strap. For the artwork, you will be able to choose from several popular color palettes for both 11x14 pieces. The great thing about this workshop is that you will not only learn how to make the frame, but I’ll give you a list of materials so you can make more at home! And if you don’t, then you can always switch out the artwork anytime you feel like a change. Please come join me for an evening of painting, building and socializing in the beautiful and inspiring atmospheres of Mint Studio & MRH Interiors, where you can create, sip wine and shop at the same time...a perfect night out! And bring a friend! Click on the links below for more details & to register.
