This Friday and Saturday I will have my work at the Italian Community Center for October’s gallery night. I will be showing new and old paintings in a variety of sizes. Show features another artist/photographer, Albin Erhart. He will be exhibiting a photography series called Exploring the Mediterranean, based off his two weeks exploring Sicily, Greece, Turkey and Cyprus. I will have some original paintings for sale and prints in 8″ x 10″ or 12″ x 18″ sizes.
Check an article about the event in the Italian Times.
Since the Made in Milwaukee event was a little rainy to say the least the organization has offered a rain date for a few of the artist. I will be participating in the rain date show at Turner Hall Ballroom November 23rd from 7pm – 12am. The night will be made up of many artists showing their work with live painters and entertainment. Even though it will be Wednesday, we will be having a great time. Go to the Made in Milwaukee website for more details on the event.
Stay tuned for updates!
Rain or Shine we
made it through
the day –
The day started at 7 am and lasted well past 11 pm. We set up and had everything ready to go at 9am and the crowd rolled in. It was busy and fast-paced the whole morning. Then things changed around noon, the rain came and kept coming till 4. We had some casualties in the form of water logged framed prints, but it was worth it for such a great day we had. Didn’t sell any of the painting, but sold a good amount of prints and came out positive for the day.

This past week, first week in August, was a crazy week for art. My boyfriend Jason and I kept getting involved in great art events around Milwaukee. It started Tuesday when my friend from work, Pam from the Milwaukee Mijas asked if I wanted to paint live with her at a spoken word open mic night at Brewing Grounds on Farwell.
On Wednesday, we dropped off my painting at the Buddha Lounge on Milwaukee St, for the upcoming show that Friday. It got me excited to see the space, we dropped off the new yellow painting called Mandarin, Merlin, Phish and Scape.
Thursday was the big Urban Island Beach party at Lake shore park. It was a co-hosted event by Art Milwaukee and Newaukee. When I got there I was told I was signed up to live paint a scooter for Cream City Cruisers. It ended up being a group project and was really fun. I was able to paint right on the lake, with some friends, listening to music alongside of 2 other live painters. One of my friend and other local artist Jason Wuerch aka SOAP. It was all beautifully documented by photographer Nicolas Grasset, see his photos below and his website HERE:

We kept the week going by showing work at the Buddha Lounge on Friday. The night had three local artist showing their work, again my friend SOAP was able to show his work too. There was also a live painter, a DJ all night, hip-hop acts and a drum kit project. I met lots of new artists and creative people around Milwaukee.
And if that was not enough for the week, Saturday we came out to see Art Milwaukee at the Summer Sizzle Jazz Festival downtown. They closed down Broadway to make room for three stages, vendors and lots of fun stuff. We set up an easel right in the street and started painting. At one point the mayor of Milwaukee was walking around and we invited him to paint on the canvas. He was shy at first and then painted a circle! He even signed that back! It was a great night and this was a great week for art.
What was created during the Jazz Festival
Two awesome ladies contacted me one day from Alverno College. They had found me on Art Milwaukee and wanted to do a causal interview for a class. They did a great job and I am very flattered that they liked my work.

Etsy Store : Sellin' for San Fran
Going to try to get some spending cash before I leave for a week to meet some friends in San Fransisco. I have heard such great things about the city I can’t wait to get out there. I am going to sell some paintings in the next couple months to get some funds and get some work out there into the world. If you like something, post to your wall and let others know what going on. Any support is much appreciated!
Send me an email to chat about where to go in San Fran, what you see in the paintings, art or just to say hello.
Thanks for looking!
