I also have a time-lapse video from creating this piece you can watch here: youtu.be/TG-vTDJn_V8

I am one of those that created a portrait of David Bowie on the day of his death," she says, "I have never been so moved to express my gratitude for a person's existence (whom I don't even know personally) upon their passing as I was for David Bowie. He was the embodiment of visionary genius. There are musicians, actors, singers, writers, and artists, but few manage to cover the amount of creative ground that he did and in such an influential way. While painting this portrait, I listened to his new album 'Blackstar' on repeat, interpreting the lyrics as his final farewell. The process of painting his portrait became a method for grieving his loss and I came out of it so appreciative of him and his extensive contribution to the world. 

The original piece measures 7" x 8" and was painted in watercolor and gouache.

Immure
Created for "In Service of Monsters," a Guillermo del Toro tribute show opening at Gallery 1988 West September 11th, 2015. 

My piece is inspired by the forthcoming "Crimson Peak" film. It was painted in watercolor and measures 11" x 14."

...

Edit: I am THRILLED to say that the man himself, Guillermo del Toro, purchased the original painting.

Interests
Right now, I'm running a crowd-funding campaign to recover lost savings, which will ultimately lead to having a studio space again (my impending daughter's nursery took over the space). One of the rewards I'm offering for contributions is a six week online watercolor class. This has been requested of me quite often, so I'm very excited to be able to offer it! 



There are lots of other exciting rewards available too, including a Process & Technique DVD if the class is too far out of your budget! 

Head over here for more information.

Hope to see some of you sign up! :D
