In Very Exciting News....

Last month I signed a lease on a storefront studio space in Bellows Falls, Vermont. This is huge because I will have so much more room to paint while also being visible to the public. I’ve been keeping an eye out for a space for awhile and when this opened up I had to move fast. This means that I do not have all of the details ironed out as to how exactly I am going to run the space. As of now I am happily working on about 16 paintings and the rest of the puzzle will fall into place later. I am open to scheduled studio visits and also welcome random visitors when I am working (typically a couple nights a week and occasional weekends until I am making enough to quit the day job).

The studio is on 7 Canal Street in Bellows Falls, VT. The building where my studio resides is part of The Exner Block which is focused on providing artists and creative folks affordable housing and studio space. How cool is that? I am open by chance or appointment. To make an appointment you can email me or text or leave a message at 802-591-2329.

Art on Deck - A FUNdraiser for a Vermont Skatepark

Recently I was asked to paint a skateboard that will be auctioned off to benefit the Manchester, Vermont Skatepark! It is exciting to be involved with a project that will benefit the youngsters, and young of heart, in Vermont. I whipped up this piece using spray paint, acryl-gouache and paint markers. I wanted to create a piece that was extra spontaneous with lots of movement. Right now it is on display at Arson until August 19th. After that they will be displayed at Bonnet & Main until August 25th (5pm to 7:30pm) where the final day of the Auction will take place. I’m sure any out-of-towners could bid by contacting Arson.

Art Show and Pet Portrait Workshop in Winhall VT

I have two events coming up at The Winhall Community Art Center this month.

June 14th 6pm - 8pm - Art Opening

I will have an art opening showcasing a selection of my abstract paintings and portraits. The abstract paintings will be for sale. The portraits are part of my Lady of the Month series which are not for sale. Light refreshments will be served.

June 19th 6pm - 8pm - Pet Portrait Workshop

In this portrait workshop, painters will have the opportunity to create a one of a kind painting of their beloved pet or favorite animal using acryla gouache on an 8”x8” panel. Mindy Fisher provides hands-off guidance to ensure each student can develop their own style at whatever skill level they are at. Acryla-gouache is a highly pigmented paint that is a hybrid of watercolor, gouache and acrylic with a saturated matte finish. It is extremely satisfying to paint with.
* All materials are included. It is recommended to bring a photo of your furry, scaled or feathered friends for reference.
The cost is $35.00 ( scholarships are always available).
Ages 10 up to 100!
Space is limited, you MUST sign up!
