My Middle Age Freak Show

meand5
Hello Friends! I’ve recently completed some big new work now available for sale at the State Street Gallery in the loop in Chicago! Last spring I was invited by curator, Jason Messinger, to participate in a group show in the theme of ‘Carnival’. Inspired by ‘circus side show’ banners, I merged my painting style with my sketchbook journal imagery and my own personal middle age ‘freak show’ story to produce a collection of 5 foot pieces! I’m excited for you to see them, and I would like to personally invite you to join us this Thursday, October 13th for theCrazy 8 Artists’ CarnivalOpening Receptionfrom 5-7:30. (Additional details below).

My Statement reveals all, you may be amused!

You can preview my other pieces here.

We Love Kids N Dogs!

kidsndogsI’m so excited to tell you about my new partnership with We Love Kids N Dogs and Neeman Barkus, based in Okemos, Michigan. We met at the Windy City Pet Expo back in July, they were exhibiting with their new Poochie Bowl, a genius invention inspired by their dearly departed Basset Hound, Scooter – it’s oval shaped so those long ears don’t get in the bowl – ‘the dry ear’ bowl! We’ve discussed some exciting possibilities for 2015…stay tuned! And if you live near the Meridian Mall in Okemos, get over there – their current Basset, Dudley, is often working at the store, I know he would love to meet you!
