My work featured at my local (and favorite) art supply store!

I absolutely love Artist and Craftsmen Supply Store in Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh. I find myself there almost weekly, whether I need anything or not. It helps that I live nearby. The employees never cease to be friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. They feature local artists every month behind the front counter, and I recently got a turn. Works shown are “…some nuts, grapes, and a slice of mango,” “The Legacy of Shakespeare,”Stripes,” and “Tiger Shark.”

Art All Night!

Here in Pittsburgh we have an awesome annual event: Art All Night. It’s art, and music, and beer… all night long. It’s free for everyone, and anyone in the burgh can submit one artwork for display – with all being accepted. It’s such a great way to see the creativity going on throughout the city from hobbyists, pros, children, and dabblers alike. Needless to say, there are thousands of works on display. And it’s an absolute blast. My pastel drawing “Dexter” was my featured work.
