New Blog

Attention! I have moved to a new blog platform. Please go HERE!

Cover Shot

The vogue ladies behind Haute Apple Pie (HAP), have been overwhelmingly supportive of my art. I've been able to work with them on a few photo shoots for their amazing blog and they have even been kind enough to pose for some of my paintings.

Their stylish tips, modern aesthetic, and delicious ideas keep an ever-growing number of fans tuning in each week. They have gained such a following, that local business have begun to take notice.

Outpost recently featured HAP as the cover story in their magazine and online. The photo coincidentally was taken my me. So thank you to Katie, Stephanie and Anne for not only being creative inspirations yourselves, but for all of your support. I look forward to watching the HAP empire grow ... Martha had better watch out!

Art for Charity Auction

I've donated five pieces for an auction for the Westside Healthcare Association Gallery night this Friday, April 16th 2010. It's going to be a really neat event with a large number of local and talented artists. There will be silent bidding for everything donated thought out the evening as well as food, drink, and a raffle. Go to for more info!

On the same night, head to my favorite gallery in Milwaukee, Caggio, and check out the unbelievable work they have now.

Here are the two paintings and the three photos I donated!

From the Last Show

Just wanted to get a few photos of the last show on here. I'm revamping my website, so these will be up on there soon enough.

Saint Josephine

This is a piece I finished a few days ago for the Eisner Museum's upcoming charity silent auction. The party to support the museum should be a blast. For more info on the event follow the link above and go to the "I Love the Eisner" event page.

This was done with Charcoal, acrylic and copper. The photo I used was taken by the amazing John Kenny. His work is truly inspirational.

Saint Josephine Bakhita is venerated as a modern African saint, and as a saint with a special relevance to slavery and oppression. She has been adopted as the patron saint of Sudan.

Opening Countdown ...

With the opening just one week away, I am working diligently on the remaining few paintings. I will have twelve total in this series I am titling "Plume". Last night, I wrapped up a piece featuring my beautiful friend Katie. The photo below was taken quickly about half way through the process.

I hope to see everyone next Friday, here is a link to the event information.

Happy New Year & much love!
