Wedding Bliss Fun!

This past Saturday I had so much fun drawing the guests of Peter and Sheridan’s wedding! The party took place in my neighborhood at the beautiful Williamsburg Savings Bank in Brooklyn which used to be a bank but is now a venue used to host parties and events! The interior is so beautiful inside with its gorgeous domes and decor.I really enjoyed getting to know the other vendors and drawing the guests of the bride and groom. I love drawing newlywed couples because through my artwork I get to capture such a special moment in time for them! If you have an upcoming wedding, please keep me in mind to draw your guests! The special occasion was held at Weylin B. Seymour (www.weylin.com) and planned by Allison Sargent (www.allisonsargent.com)

A Unique Way to Say Goodbye…

 

Every year, I have been honored to draw the retiring professors from Newark Academy – a school in New Jersey that teaches their students to be the very best that they can be. Teachers who also move on to other destinations also receive every year a unique parting gift – a framed caricature with a drawing of the school in the artwork.  I love this client and love the challenge of being able to draw these amazing teachers who have inspired so many young lives.

First I get notes from the clients and details about each person. Then I draw them in sketch concept mode.

Once the client approves the artwork sketch, then I do a tighter rending sketch. Afterwards I ink it in and color it using Tombow markers and Sharpies.

Should you need to say goodbye to a special colleague, why not get them something unique and  memorable like a framed piece or artwork of themselves? (Hint, hint!)

TONIGHT! WATCH FORGE & FIRE ON THE HISTORY CHANNEL!

 

When I moved to New York City over 17 years ago, I met one of my best friends Ron Mezile. He was my neighbor who lived upstairs with his then girlfriend at the time, (now wife!) Diane Hewitt and pet iguana, Ralph (who was a girl). Little did I know that over the years we would be the dearest and closest of friends. Ron is a VERY talented artist, sculptor and creates the most amazing three dimensional pieces that I have ever seen. I love his art pieces and his ability to create something out of steel, plaster, clay and iron amazes me. I am proud to be his friend and am SO EXCITED to announce that TONIGHT he will be on the History Channel airing at 10pm EST/ 9pm CST on the FORGE and FIRE show. Please watch my dear friend battle it out in blacksmithing and create an amazing sword. You won’t be disappointed and won’t want to miss this show! Here is Ron on the left with
another friend of ours Renato showing off their knives. After watching the show, you’ll be so INSPIRED and can BOOK HERE a 2-day knife making class with Ron but HURRY! Classes sell out quickly!

Valentine Love – Starts with Self-Love

So, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.  I love this holiday because it reminds us all the

importance of self-love. If we can’t love ourselves then how can we love others and make a

difference in this world? We are all created to love and to be our best versions of ourselves!

Recently I was honored to do a BLAB with the amazing Catherine Storing of @StoringStyle and

we spoke about the importance of FACING YOUR BEAUTY. Yes, there is beauty within each

and every one of us! I love drawing people because I enjoy capturing their inner beauty

that I see inside of them and through my art help that shine through.

Watch the interview here by clicking on the photo of us below and enjoy!
