My Gallery Debut!

I'm officially an artist! I had my debut last weekend at The Doubting Thomas art gallery in Cleveland! It was awesome to see one of my paintings hanging on a gallery wall!

The show was called, "Out of the Box" and the idea was for artists to hang a piece in the medium they normally work in, and one in a medium they're unfamiliar with, that's 'out of the box'. Going with the box theme, I decided to paint a picture of a puppy peeking out of a box. Here's how it went....

And finally.......

18" x 24" original acrylic painting on canvas

I'd say it turned out well! For my 'Out of the Box' piece, I took a picture I had taken on our honeymoon on the beach of Maui and photoshopped it. I kind of found out last minute about the need of a 2nd piece, so this was a bit unexpected! And yet, from what I could tell at the opening, more people were looking at my picture than my painting! Grrrrrrrr! FOCUS people :-)

"Mischief" and "Maui" can be seen at The Doubting Thomas at select times the next few weekends. And now its back to work for me...I am super excited to announce that my paintings will be displayed at Grumpy's Cafe in Cleveland this February & March! Grumpy's has absolutely delicious food and is located right in the heart of the Tremont area of Cleveland. I'm getting an entire wall to hang my work...which means I am uber-stressed with trying to pump out paintings. I think I can fit about 10-12 paintings up there, so I have my work cut out for me. So excited that I'm starting to get my name out there!


  1. That is so awesome! You so deserve it with all of your amazing talent!
