December was a wild ride and now the 2023 is in full swing! There are several exciting shows and events coming up and a NEW STUDIO! I am very excited to have a new working studio within the Greenwood Art Collective.
Last year blew me away with all the amazing support from markets, shows, and commissions. I am incredibly thankful everyday to be able to continue creating and building Psychedelic Lens and meet so many amazing people!
This year is an exciting one. I am thrilled to be collaborating with one of my favorite artists @creaturepanic this month, a few new markets and fairs I will be showing in, and new work! Hopefully these stationery sets and tree series will finally come together. Finally, having a working studio for Psychedelic Lens will be a game changer.
I hope to see you soon! :)
The 2023 calendar is done! The equinoxes and solstices are marked with dots. Another 11” x 17” nature print is available, both are available online and in person. Woo boo!
This be the final lineup for Holiday Markets! These are great places to support local artists and small businesses of this region and also have a good time. Many of these events have drinks and food available, hope to see ya around! I am also doing the Rabbit Box Pop Up on Dec 9th 11-4
It's that festive time of year of fun and cozy markets. I will be somewhere around Seattle every weekend through Nov and probably Dec. Below are some markets I will be attending. I do keep a running, up-to-date list of events in the shop section with the times and addresses.
And I now have a wholesale section on this site with all the basic info on ordering wholesale if you have a business!
Howdy hey! It has been a minute. I have been working on getting my prints and stationery into shops these past few months and am excited to share a few places which now carry my work!
In Tacoma, WA you can find prints and postcards at the SUPER CUTE Stocklist Goods
In Eureka, CA The Bodega which is run by an amazingly talented artist who prints her own apparel line nothing-obvious
On the other side of the country in Minneapolis, MN you can find my work in the unique, witchy space, The Future.
You can also find my work at Archie's Press in Brooklyn, NY and Shorelake Arts and Third wave Mercantile in Seattle!!
And I was recently featured on Beryl Shereshewsky's youtube channel! She has an awesome patreon where her supporters can support her but also other artists, through her art club. Neato! I have been a fan of her videos for a while, I definitely recommend checking them out.
This summer was a busy one with markets, I'm looking forward to the changing pace of fall.
I spent the past week up in Bellingham painting this mural! I will be honest, knowing how slowly I build up layers and generally not painter, I was a bit nervous to tackle this. The initial prep of endless sketching and studies made this possible. Below are some of my studies, I also spent a day at the aquarium sketching from life and taking photos.
It was an incredible experience to paint this, to be able to focus solely on one project for 5 days straight. I look forward to the next one. . .
For those interested, I used Golden Acrylics with matte medium. Coated with a glossy isolation coat to seal it and finally, a satin varnish. The entire painting process took about 54 hours. I did have to call in back up. . . Aka my mom, on the last 2 days to help me with edging and putting on the final varnish. If I were to have done it all myself it would have easily been over 60 hours. A HUGE ‘thank you’ to her!!
I have a lot of new pieces in the works and STILL working on the stationery set. Once I get the first one done I think the others will come through much quicker. I’m testing a bunch of stuff and the paper shortage is making things a bit more challenging. But! It’s coming along. I am very excited to be able to use the riso printing studio of Paper Press Punch to experiment with paper and colors.
I should note, FB has deleted me, twice so I will no longer be on that platform.
Every weekend in July I will be vending!
One of these shows I am actually putting together, the Greenwood Art Collective Science Art Show!
Below is some new work available:
I am very excited to be renting studio time in Paper Press Punch to work on my riso prints and experiment with stationery. I have also been sketching at the aquarium in prep for a marine themed mural I will be doing soon. Lots of things in the works!! Be sure to stop by one of the art markets and say hello! :)
