Hello Custom Print


I am very excited to announce that Forest Rain Gallery in Singapore will be representing me in 2013.  Just yesterday I shipped out a package of original paintings to them, and should they arrive on time, they will be taking these paintings with them to Hong Kong’s Affordable Art Fair this March.  This is good news if you live in Asia, as now there were be three locations this year where you can maybe catch an original:  Singapore, Hong Kong, and Taipei this coming May.

And just in time for Valentine’s Day. ….One of the paintings I just shipped to Singapore is now available in a signed limited edition print over in my etsy shop.
Title: “On The Street Where You Live”  (only 10 in this edition)


January 2013 News

Happy New Year!  Just some news for 2013 since it has been a while since my last post.  I’ve got info on art shows, crafty things I’m working on, as well as something about Dodo birds….

Art Shows
Weekend Festivals:  Since 2010 I have headed up to the Atlanta area for the Norcross, Dunwoody, and Acworth Art Festivals.  Unfortunately this year I decided to decline them mainly due to logistical reasons.  As of right now, 2013 will not include any regional festivals.  Hoping to do some festivals in 2014 in the Florida panhandle area, and maybe here in Orlando.

International Juried Art Show:  I have been invited back to Art Revolution Taipei’s 2013 International Art Show, and have been busy preparing a bunch of paintings to send over to them.  Creating the paintings, all back and forth communication involved, and getting everything ready, packed, and shipped actually involves a lot more work than my normal art projects.  So January continues to be a busy month, and new originals will probably not show up until these are all out the door.

Art Goods
I’ve been prepping for some new artsy whatnots for the etsy shop.  No real details at this point, other than I’ll say wood blocks have been cut and some jewelry supplies have arrived in.  If you like little artsy giftables, stay tuned as I usually only do these once a year (if that).  I’ll also be making some smaller paintings as some of you have requested those too.

Lastly…iPad Cases
I came across a company called DodoCase, and loved their cases they make for devices.  They create quality book style cases using traditional book binding techniques and eco friendly durable materials.  I almost purchased one direct from their website, then I discovered they recently partnered with Zazzle which allows for interior image customization.  So I made one and received it a couple of weeks ago.  I love it so much I decided to license a few designs out from some handpicked past works.  Below are photos of how my case turned out.  Let me just add that I was not given this case by the company or asked to do any sort of write up (I wish), this is just me posting what I did.  If $89 is too steep of a price for an case, then do what I did and order during a sale…Zazzle has them often.  If I see a nice sale going on, I’ll be sure to post the code on my facebook page.  More designs to come and also iPhone 5 case designs will be made available soon as well.
