I'll be the featured artist at Spirit in Lawrenceville for the month of December.  The opening event is Friday, December 1st and is part of the CD release party for local band Donora.  

I'll also be the featured artist at The Backstage Bar in Theater Square for Nov-Dec - more details to follow!

You can also find my art at The Wexford Pub at Whole Foods this Nov-Jan.

TRAF Thanks and upcoming shows

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Three Rivers Arts Festival!  I'll be adding all of my newest paintings to my Art Shop this week, so check back soon if you were interested in a painting.  If you missed me at TRAF or want to take a second look at something, I'll be at the Pittsburgh Night Market on Friday, July 7th.  I'll be displaying more small-medium pieces as well as works on paper.

Cheers!

Off the Hook artwork

I just installed my artwork at the award-winning seafood restaurant Off the Hook in Warrendale, PA.  I created five custom-designed charcoal drawings of fish fossils for the oyster bar, and also a large mixed media piece for the dining room.  I'm incredibly happy with how they turned out!  The owner, Lisa Hawley, has a very sleek & simple aesthetic - very industrial chic - so I designed the artwork around her tastes, keeping the work minimal and refined.  I used the same base color as the walls so the fish become a part of their environment.  Great success!

Pittsburgh Night Market - Friday, March 18th

Celebrating Pittsburgh's Bicentennial birthday!!!  I'll be setting up my booth and selling my wares at this awesome Night Market - along with tons of other local artists, crafters, entrepreneurs, local food booths and other independent vendors.  Come down and say hello!  Part of the Gallery Crawl brought to you by the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust.

"Verse Envisioned"

I'm part of an exciting collaborative group show of Pittsburgh writers and artists held at the Panza Gallery in Millville, PA.  Each artist was paired with a poem and used this as inspiration to create an original artwork.  My painting, featured on the postcard below, was inspired by Jan Hardy's poem, Anesthetic.  Curated by Rachel Klipa.
The opening reception on is Saturday, January 16th from 6-9pm.  The show runs till February 27th, 2016.
