Catching Up

Oh dear.  Has it really been nearly a year since I blogged last?  Whoa.  My oh my how time flies. Well, here's a super brief recap of what's happened since then. 1.  Erik and I completed the year-long mentorship program for our Fontface business!   Fontface has now officially taken on a life of its own, complete with its own branding separate from my fine art.  And while the FF blog is also sadly out of date, it will be refreshed soon with some exciting announcements!

2.  I have moved out of my studio at Artspace.  It was a tough decision, but one I made with clarity and confidence, knowing I was weeks away from stepping foot into a dream studio right in my own home.  (see #4)

3.  I completed a major commission in November.  The Renaissance hotel (Washington DC location) commissioned me to make 3 pieces.  If you're lucky enough to spend a night in the Presidential Suite of the Renaissance hotel in downtown Washington DC, well... then, say hello to my art.  And while you're at it, send me a picture or two so I can see it in context.


4.  We moved into a house!  Our very first home purchase (eek!) and it just so happens to be nestled on a private lake, have amazing natural light and provide a gorgeous backdrop for art making.  Total swoon.  We are tickled pink to be putting down roots here in Raleigh, NC and have crazy big plans for what this property may become in the coming years.  My studio (formerly used as a sunroom and psycho-therapy room) is currently undergoing a major overhaul.  Teal carpet is being removed, floors sealed, walls painted, shelves and tables put up....dreamy creative spaces don't make themselves overnight.  Or so I keep telling myself.  :)
