I am very excited to share my new collaboration with Minted.com today! If you are not familiar with Minted, it is known for its wonderful paper products like greeting cards, invitations, art prints, business cards etc., all designed by a family of independent talented indie artists across the globe. You can now purchase some of my original artwork in limited edition print runs, framed or unframed, as well as a variety of sizes. I am very excited to sell my prints exclusively through Minted.com and I hope you will visit my storefront and let me know what you think!
I love portrait photography especially when it is made into an abstract form. These lovely pieces from Saatchi Gallery artists are a great example of how to manipulate existing photographs into something abstract and beautiful.

We all grew up watching Saturday morning cartoons with Bugs Bunny and the gang. The cartoons by Chuck Jones shaped our childhood and always brings a smile to our faces. In a career spanning three decades, Jones directed more than 300 animated films, and was given an Academy Award for Lifetime Achievement. The new exhibit at the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, NY features 23 of Chuck Jones’s animated films, interactive experiences, and more than 125 original sketches and drawings, storyboards and photographs, demonstrating how Jones and his collaborators worked together to create some of the greatest cartoons ever made.
On such an overcast day here in Georgia, I was inspired to post some bold bright colors! I came across internationally recognized contemporary public artist and award-winning painter Alex Brewer, known as HENSE, who creates colorful works of art combining techniques of street art and abstract paintings. His mediums range from silkscreen paper compositions to massive works of art on buildings. His retro 80′s feel is right down my alley and I can’t get enough of his cheerful and vibrant work. Above are a few of my favorites, but you can see more of his monumental works on his website here or in our Other Mediums Gallery. Enjoy and have a great creative weekend!

I was lucky enough today to be a part of a curated group of abstract paintings by Associate Curator and Art Advisor of Saatchi Art, Bridget Carron. Bridget grouped together a wonderful collection of art. I am very proud to be a part of the Saatchi family! To see this curated collection, please click here. I will be posting artwork from these other talented artists in the coming weeks.
I was mesmerized by the sheer talent of artist Zaria Forman. I recently came across her work on Saatchi and was blown away. Not only can she rock the media of pastels, her life is fascinating. She grew up travelling to the most remote areas of the world and was able to see first hand all of the wonderful landscapes most of us won’t see in our lifetime. Zaria led Chasing the Light, an expedition sailing up the NW coast of Greenland, retracing the 1869 journey of American painter William Bradford and documenting the rapidly changing arctic landscape. Her drawings truly show her concern and dedication to preserving the beauty of our planet. I am so happy to have found her work and I can’t wait to follow her on her journey. To see more of Zaria’s drawings, you can visit her main website here. For more of Zaria’s work, please view our Other Mediums Gallery.
