Shapes and paint strokes, a love story 💓 ...

The palette in this mural section matches Tula’s bed prettaaay, prettaaay good. Can’t keep it though - it gets installed today! I did a great job with the in progress shots 🙄🤦🏻‍♀️ jk, there are none. Priority rush jobs mean I ain’t got time fo dat! ...

Pretty happy that I’ve followed through with a yoga practice first thing every morning recently … with the exception of yesterday because I woke up with an “emotion hangover” (even more reason not to skip yoga 😬).

SO, on that note, if you’re interested in a yoga practice & you live or vacation ‘the shore’ I’m a part of a great new yoga collective called @thecoastalyogacollective 🧘🏻‍♀️ We’re a group of friends and yoga instructors offering concierge yoga and wellness.

Check us out if you’re local or vacationing this Summer! Link is in my bio or visit us here: @thecoastalyogacollective!

Tula is only available by special request 😂🐕 #greatdanelife

So first, this feels very awkward and vulnerable … this is my ex. And second, I have 3 paintings (of exes) in a show at @varwestgallery in Milwaukee curated by @andreaguzzetta. OPENING TONIGHT 6-9pm!

The show is called “Before We Broke Up: An intimate look at love lost” 💔

I’m grateful and honored to have work in the show. It’s been forever since I’ve exhibited my work. When the opportunity came my way, I literally pulled these out of storage, dusted them off, and shipped them to Milwaukee in hopes that someone would find love for one of these paintings and in turn take these exes off my hands. Thank you so much to @varwestgallery & @andreaguzzetta for including my work.

🎨 To inquire, purchase, and view other work in the show: contact @varwestgallery

Little extra note here about this specific painting (and not the person): this was one of the last oil paintings I created. I discovered murals around this time and my ideas about art changed, as well as my chosen medium.
...

I’ve just been over here designing, planning, and stressing for upcoming projects. Very little painting going on lately, so here’s a throwback to an oldie at one of my favorite past art studios. 💕 #sharktownstudios ...

Peony season. 🌸 This peony print and more are available in my shop!

Original 12x12 oil painting also available. I think I’m finally ready to part with it 🥲 Message me to inquire.

This is your light nudge reminder to sign up for the Acrylic Plant Painting Class with me & @pacrafts - class starts tomorrow night!! 💓Link in bio to sign up, or message me.

Virtual 2 part/session class: Tomorrow, May 13th & 20th, 6pm-8pm.

This class is great for beginners and also for people looking to better their acrylic painting skill.

Don’t worry, we aren’t working that big and you don’t need a lot of space! You’re welcome to blast some tunes, wear your pajamas, and keep your camera off if you’re zoom fatigued. The goal is to have fun & do something creative.

Quick synopsis of what you’ll learn: color theory/color mixing & matching, taking what you see and getting it onto the canvas, how to work with acrylics, and painting techniques and tips to get you the finished outcome you’re looking for.

You’ll leave class with a painted plant you can’t kill. 🙃

Let’s paint and chill! Let me know if you have questions. (If you’re interested in this class but can’t make it, let me know and we’ll see what we can do 😉)

Sign up at the link in my bio or head over to @pacrafts. Message me if you need anything.
...

I’m looking for Summer mural assistants! Must be Philly local (or in the Philly area). Bonus if you have mural experience with parachute cloth, and are able to paint realistically (portrait work, etc).

Tag someone if you think they’d be interested 💓 Please share 🙌

Email me your resume and portfolio!

Calling all plant lovers: I'm teaching a 2 part Virtual Acrylic Plant Painting class with the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen May 13th and 20th! @pacrafts 🎨 (sign up link in my bio)

In this online class, students will learn techniques to work confidently with acrylics to paint and capture likeness and personality of their favorite plants. Participants will learn about the advantages of this fast-drying medium and will leave with a beautiful completed painting. This class will focus on basic painting techniques, brush handling, color mixing and matching, and the process of working on a painting from start to finish.

This class is perfect for beginners or for people looking to better their painting skill to capture likeness.

Link to sign up is in my bio! Shoot me a message with any questions! 🪴 💓

Studio assistant with her thinking BED on - really doing the goodest job helping me pump out ideas for this public mural call I’m working on. Thanks, Tula 👍@tulathegreat ...

Artist probs ✍️ ...

Grateful to be featured alongside some awesome artists in the ‘Feel Good’ issue by @candyflossmag 🍬

Candy Floss asked artists to write a blurb about things that make us feel good. During that time I was in a place that was very much the opposite of feeling good. But I was still able to recognize things that make me happy. A few things I listed: Tula 🐕(@tulathegreat), my Girl Gang 💓, listening to @myfavoritemurder, wild sunsets, the ocean 🌊...

This issue reminded of a long stretch of time where my artwork used to be really somber, and now I just want to make work that’s vibrant and brings me and others joy. ☺️

Also: that little white fluff ball is my sweet baby angel, Jonah 👼🏼😻
...

It’s her birthday and she’ll wear a flower crown if she wants to. 🌸 👑

🌼🌺 thank you so much to @ajewelbee for making this gorgeous custom flower crown for Tula’s mural portrait last year. It was so beautiful and it will live on forever in the @blickartmaterials Philly mural.

And happy 2nd birthday to my sweet Tootie 🐕 🥳 @tulathegreat !! Now I need to figure out how to make a doggo cake for a food allergy queen on a hydrolyzed protein diet 🤦🏻‍♀️ #spoiledpup
...

Some more mural flower details 🌸 🌺 💐 🌹

If you want to try your hand at painting flowers, I’m teaching a daytime virtual floral painting and techniques class with The Art Center at Ambler. 🎨 If you have questions, you can shoot me a message or drop them below.

Worked my brain on this big ‘ol pear a few weeks back from @curio.lancaster’s Sketch Club 🍐 @curio.sketchclub ...

I’ve taken a break from sharing here for a whole month 😳 Every few days I have a plan to come back, and I bail. Social media can be a huge source of anxiety for me. So here’s an appropriate throwback of me literally walking away 😂

I wish I heard rustling palms and felt a warm sea breeze, but the reality is it was below 30 this morning. It’s supposed to hit 70 degrees this week before it snows again ... so I’m seriously considering taking my paddle board out. I realize the water is ice 🧊 🥶

This will be a good / better week. 🌞
