art work showing whirlwind

Been busy creating, especially in the last year ~ now to show the work. 
Art in the Wilder Park ~ May 6-7

I'm thrilled to be showing my work with the very talented Robin Leifeld at the Elmhurst Art in the Park this weekend ~ May 6th and 7th, booth #8.
In this dual show, we will have mixed media pieces girlie sweet & sometimes not so sweet.
Robin and I connected soon after both joining the studios630 artist community group in the 'burbs. Giving each other a little encourage and creative push, we entered the juried show as the collective "The Art of Being a Girl". We both work in mixed media with a journey at the heart of our work. We would love to see your smiling faces in the crowd.

Elmhurst Library

Then there is THIS opportunity! I'm so incredibly excited about the new Maker Space that will soon be open to Elmhurst residents. The Maker Space will host a show of my communication printmaking series and digital image mixed media series. The date is not set in stone, since it's still under construction, but most likely in the first few week of June. I'll keep you posted.
~ UPDATE ~ although I'm still really excited about the opening, looks like the exhibition won't be happening. boo hoo.
Elmhurst College
Oh, and then there this... after 2 years of highly focus study (truly 20 years in the making) I will graduate with my degree in Communications, minor in Fine Art from Elmhurst College. To help commemorate that event, the art department has agreed to show my digital imaging series in the Founders lounge last two weeks of May just before graduation, over Memorial Day weekend. Last year, I received the honor to show my work in the prestigious Art Cafe right below founders, so if you are in the area, check that out too.

It's sincerely been a whirlwind of creativity, opportunity and abundance. I'm incredibly grateful.
~ Hopefully, I'll see you soon ~
