I have been accepted into The Art Department's Career Mentorship program and will be mentored by John English and Brent Watkinson to build a portfolio of new work. I’m excited and look forward to the challenge!
I am currently attending the Illustration Academy in Kansas City, MO and it is absolutely amazing so far! I highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning about picture making from some of the top illustrators in the industry.

I'm excited to announce that I'll be moving to Kansas City in early January to continue my education at The Art Department. Their classes have been wonderful so far and I am learning a great deal every day. I can't wait to get into the studio and to paint alongside all the students!
On November 12th I will be having two of my paintings auctioned at the Longboat Key Club's "Bacchus on the Beach" event. I'll be in attendance and look forward to meeting all the guests there.
On October 18th I had taken part in a panel discussion alongside Matteo Caloiaro, Brooke Olivares, and members of the Petticoat Painters. The discussion was about our different approaches to our work, the trials each artist experiences throughout their careers, and the different views on art that each participant held. A big thanks goes to the moderators Ilene Denton (Director of Marketing and Business Development Sarasota Magazine and Biz941) and Jay Handelman (Theater and TV Critic Herald-Tribune Media Group) for the wonderful job they had done. It was a great experience and I am grateful that the Longboat Key Arts Center had invited me to take part.

The Opening Reception was great last night! Thanks to everyone that came out to see the show. The Longboat Key Arts Center did a wonderful job putting the event together and much thanks to the Longboat Key Club for catering. The exhibition will be up until December 15th for those who were not able to attend the reception.
