  • Cancelled Shows for 2020 and Gallery Closed

    It’s heartbreaking but, due to coronavirus, I’m officially canceling all of my art shows that are scheduled for the remainder of 2020. I’m also permanently closing my gallery at Towne West Mall in Wichita. I am at high risk, and I just don’t see how I can safely attend large events or be exposed to large numbers of the general public. I’ve been staying at home and isolating since the beginning of March.

    When facing adversity, I always like to look for the silver lining. Mine is that by not doing shows or my gallery, I'm able to spend more time in my studio painting. And that's really awesome! Plus, my art is still available for sale online.
    If you are one of the people who usually purchases from me at shows and are hesitant to purchase online, please know that every artwork I ship is insured and backed by Etsy’s buyer protection policy. I stand behind every package I send out, and I promise that yours will arrive safely. If it does not, I will replace it. And most of my inventory that is available at shows is available online. If you have trouble finding something on my website, please reach out via email or social media. I usually reply to everyone within a few hours.

    And thank you all so much for supporting me and my small art business. It means a lot 💕

  • How to Take Awesome Photos of Your Pet with Your Smartphone

    Remember when you were in elementary school, and it was school photo day? The whole class would line up in the auditorium. One by one, you and your classmates would get a turn with the photographer. There would be a stool situated in front of a nondescript blue backdrop and several lights aimed at it. You’d climb onto the stool, sit still with your eyes open wide, smile, and say "cheese". The photographer’s big fancy camera would make a few quick clicking sounds, and it would be over.

    I cringe thinking back to how awkward most of my school photos turned out; I was such a nerd! Still, this is a great example of the main features of portrait photography - lighting, pose, and backdrop. If you apply these concepts to your pet photography, you can greatly improve the quality of your photos.
  • New Gallery Wrapped Canvas Prints

    I bought a large format epson printer at the end of last year. Ever since, I've been working on perfecting the process of making gallery wrapped canvas prints of my paintings. I'm now happy to let you know that they are ready!

    I print, varnish, and stretch every canvas print myself. I DO NOT use print on demand companies. This means that each print is high-quality and an exact color match to the original painting! They look so awesome that most of the people who have seen them so far have mistaken them for original paintings! They look like originals but are much more affordable 😄

    My gallery wrapped canvas prints are now available on my website and at my gallery.

    Thanks for reading, and I hope you have a happy day 💕
