Finished at last! Sleeping Beauty has been a 7 month project this year. The final print is 12 colors and contains more detail than I have ever achieved before now in the woodblock printing process. I am so excited to finally share these months of work.

I am very happy to announce that two of my pieces are being featured in the December issue of Episodic Magazine. These two pieces were submitted and accepted for the "Nighttime" theme.
Please check out the magazine to see more (click here). Many other talented artists submitted their work! I also want to thank Moses Domingo for introducing me to Episodic Magazine to begin with.

I have decided to make Christmas cards to send to family and friends this year!! After a lot of thinking and hoping for inspiration I have finally come up with an piece that I am so excited to share. These cards will also be for sale in my Etsy shop for $5 each or a set of 5 for $20. Happy Holidays everyone.

This card was designed for a company called Eureka Tools as part of a contest. Even though my card was not selected, I wanted to share because it was a lot of fun for me to experiment with design, shape, and texture.

I am branching out again and trying something new! I found out that they sell large pieces of chalkboard material at Home Depot and I could not resist buying a few to try my hand at chalk pastels. Recently, I signed up for the Luna Park Chalk Art Festival (which takes place this coming Saturday from 10-5) so I figured that now was a great time to try out this new medium.

I have been so busy with art shows lately that it has not left a whole lot of free time for making art. I have managed to sneak this one in today! Yay!!
The art shows have been such a great experience. Thank you everyone who has come out to say hello! I am looking forward to Alameda Art Stroll next week. If you are in the area stop by! It is on Webster Street. :)

This is the card I am planning on sending to my dad for his special day :). I still have to make the envelope for it because its a little bit too big for any regular sized envelope. Looking forward to making crafty things!!

May has been full of local art shows. This is my first year doing these and so far they have been awesome! I have met some wonderful, talented people and I have had great support from my friends and family. Thank you to everyone, especially Moses!
This is the latest woodblock print. One of the first prints that I ever created was an abstract version of Sleeping Beauty. Now that I have had more experience with the printmaking process, I felt that it was time to revisit that fairy tale. Stay tuned for more on the process :)

These are the latest prints pulled! There are 21 total, 7 of each color variation. I had an idea to use pattern as both part of the background and part of the character. I am really excited by the outcome!
"Free Thinker" will be available to purchase for the first time this weekend at the art show in Mountain View. Come and see me!

This is a gouache study for a woodblock print I am thinking of creating. I have hung it on the wall in my apartment so that I can look at it over the next few days and make a decision.
