This Saturday, April 6th, I will be opening my Studio to the Public for another Open House.

Come check out the Western Avenue Studios, a complex of buildings filled with over 100 working artists. Work ranges from textiles, to printmaking, to metallurgy, and prices can range from cheap trinkets and gifts to rather large investments. Studio is located at 122 Western Ave, Lowell, MA.

My studio is located on the fifth floor at number #527 (with the green door). I will be selling original watercolors, affordable prints, as well as leather costume wear and accessories. All the sort of stuff you see on this blog and on my website, I try to have for sale at my open houses. Open House starts at 12pm and ends at 5pm. I hope to see you there!

Please visit my studio page for directions and more information.

This Saturday, for the first time, I will be opening my brand new studio space to the public as part of Western Avenue Studio’s Open Studios events, which take place the first Saturday of every month. Western Avenue Studios is a converted mill factory that became artist studio spaces seven years ago. On Open Studio Saturdays, artists in the building hang up their work, and open their doors to the public so that they can explore and discover what local artists are up to. Much of the work on display during Open Studios is for sale.

My studio space is located on the fifth floor at number #527. There is plenty of parking out front, and you can enter through the yellow door for easy elevator or stair access. My studio will be open from 12-5pm.

Western Avenue Studios is located at

122 Western Ave
Lowell, MA 01851

I have signed a lease on my very own studio space! Located at #527 Western Avenue Studios, 122 WesternAvenue, Lowell, MA 01851, I have 230 square feet of work and retail space all to myself! I start the move in process this week, and hope to have the place open to the public by August. The first Saturday of every month, Western Ave opens its doors to the public, and invites people to take a look at all of the artwork happening inside. I hope to participate in my first Open Studio on August 4th, 2012.

Today I went in to get my key and take my first good survey of the empty space. Here’s what it looks like right now:

Four walls, wood floor, and two giant windows. I bought that cool iron corner shelf at a yard sale and repainted it last week. It will look great in the space when it is finished.

Here is my lonely broom, and a trash bag hanging on a push pin left by the previous tenant. Look! I even have an outlet…..

There is a lot that needs to be done here. I plan to totally transform the space, and I will keep you informed as to my progress.

Right now I am sitting in my studio taking a short break from painting. The semester is coming to an end but because of all of the interruptions to my work and the work of my classmates, we all have a lot of of work to get done by the twenty first.


Right now I am waiting for a layer of paint to dry before I can hopefully finish this last assignment for advertising illustration. Then I have two very large two-page spreads to work on for book illustration class. In addition, I have final projects to wrap up in three independent studies. The one nice thing about independent studies is that I can set my own deadlines. Still, I will be working up until the very end.

I wanted to write this blog post as a general checking-in update, since I haven’t had much time lately to update the blog, and as a way of relieving my stress through journaling.

I am painting fire right now and it is really causing me some headaches. This is like my forth attempt on this area of the illustration, but the process has renewed my appreciatiation for tube acrylics.


I hope you enjoy these progress pictures of what I am currently working on.

Okay, that paint is dry. Will post again soon!
