Happy International Women’s day! #tbt to when I was getting my MFA in painting at NIU and got to meet lots of cool female artists. Here’s a few of them I could only post 10 otherwise I would have added more. You can support female artists by buying their artwork but if you don’t have the financial means to buy original art try to buy a print! Go to their openings! Follow lots of female run Instagram accounts! Comment on their social media and let them know you like their work! If you have a skill set offer to trade! Also side note to all my NIU friends let’s trade some art ASAP! #tbt
Tfw you stick pencils up your nose.
Post-it note doodle for sale. Would look great hanging in your home or stuck to your face.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Here’s some very romantic paintings I made last year that look nothing like the stuff I normally make but idk it was fun.
“I’m not here to make friends” I just wrote that to be funny but now that I see it next to my drawing I’ve decided that’s the actual title.
Laying in bed with the flu and working on this. Ok I’m mostly watching Netflix and napping....
Easy breezy beautiful clover girl.
I took a palette from a scene in Dario Argento’s “Inferno” and painted a scene from the Met that I took this summer when I was in NYC. I’m so excited about this! It’s a horror movie/art history baby!!!!!! Add a soft pretzel and it’s all the things I love!
Need to make some baby tweaks on a few spots but otherwise this lady is ready for her close up.
I just got an iPad Pro and started playing around with Procreate. Super excited because I finally figured out a streamlined way to map out painting palettes for the future but also when I have to spend time planning projects and doing back-end stuff instead of actually “making art” I get very anxious and feel like I’m doing a bad job at being an artist. Hopefully everyone appreciates that I’m bringing quality to the game and forgive the lack of quantity as of late. #beinganartistishard #beinganartistishard
Here’s some of my favorite art that I finished in 2017. Got cool things in the works and even cooler ideas in my head. Let’s go 2018. #workworkworkworkwork #art #portlandart #drawing #painting #portrait #horror #trumpquotes #justgirlythings #painting #portrait #drawing #portlandart #art #workworkworkworkwork #horror #trumpquotes #justgirlythings
Thank you to @savtrevino for being my bodyguard and elbowing past a bunch of mean people so I can get a belated birthday photo with my idol @sashavelour
