Art consultant Alicia Emr commissioned me to create a new piece for the Parade of Homes. We collaborated on the colors that would work well in the space and I was excited to layer edge-glow acrylic to create an "explosion" of color that burst on the wall above the master bed.
The Art Alliance Austin invited me to create a piece for the Downtown Holiday Stroll. For this project I wanted to create an immersive installation that would invite the viewers to be a part of the piece.
My stay at Starry Night turned out to be a magical return to my childhood. I had my own little cabin (studio apartment) that made me feel like I was 12 years old and at camp. I kept the windows open to let in the cool, dry desert air and I could hear the gate swinging open as people came and left the courtyard.
A few weeks ago I packed my car up with art supplies, camping gear and snacks and hit the road. My ultimate destination was Starry Night Residency in Truth or Consequences, NM but the trip out there was an adventure in itself.
