Imagine walking into a store where you feel like everything there was curated especially for you. This is my ongoing experience each time I visit Arte Haus Collectif in Salt Lake City, UT. Soft throws, sexy succulents, gorgeous coffee table books and magazines, candles, serving dishes, minimalist jewelry and yes, even my love for oversized, neutral clothing has been indulged. What makes this place even more special? My paintings hanging on the wall amongst so much beauty & talent.
Every time I'm in Salt Lake City, I love to visit one of my favorite interior design stores: Dara Modern. My objective is threefold: to visit with the store's charismatic owner, Dustin, to see what new and beautiful items he's brought into the store, and to say hello to some of my favorite paintings.
2-days of Fearless Abstract Painting in Salt Lake City, UT was incredibly special not only because it was my first time teaching here, but also because I had the unique opportunity to work with so many individuals I admire: My mom, aunt, sister, niece, mother-in-law, best friend, colleagues from my yoga teacher training program, and an artist (our host) who's work I admire immensely. I am humbled and honoured. This experience was a dream come true for me, and I thank each and everyone who participated in making this weekend the success that it was. xx
Beautiful store, beautiful people & my paintings hanging on the wall! Visiting one of my favorite distributers in Portland, OR was the highlight of our trip. Thank you Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. for inviting me to be one of your contributing artists. Only one painting is left for sale from a series of four. My heart is full.
Aloha Portland! It's so nice to finally meet you! We only have 24 hours together. What shall we do?
I've always wanted to create a life in which I could do what I love (paint & teach Fearless Abstract Painting) and travel with the man I love. Somebody pinch me! This is a dream come true for me.
Rolling vineyards, oak forests, postage stamp towns, meandering country roads, family wineries, legendary landmarks, and 2-days of Fearless Abstract Painting in Sonoma, CA. A heartfelt "Thank You" for your attentiveness, receptivity & your welcoming heart. xx
