Home Art Shows

At the start of 2018, it was suggested to me to try a home art show. A home art show is a small art exhibition, where I bring my work to a friend's or acquaintance's house. They invite over their friends. I display some work, discuss it, and talk about my art process. (And of course, the work is for sale.) I am trying home art shows to bring my work to those who can't always make it to galleries. Many people live out of town or far from the center. Additionally, people are busy, especially if they have children. Another reason is that galleries can, on occasion, be intimidating.  What I love about this type of event are the connections I make, the direct contact with collectors, and the ability to meet people in an intimate and comfortable environment. If you are interested in having me come to your home for a home art show in the Portland/Vancouver region, send me an email:


This Saturday, from 1-3PM, I'll demonstrate my GOUACHE painting technique at the Dick Blick art store in the Pearl District. Bring a friend, and see how I use it within my work! For those of you who are unfamiliar with this art medium, gouache /ɡwäSH/ paint is a matte watercolor often used in illustration, It's rich, saturated, and opaque, which is why I love using it. Here is a link to an article I wrote about it last year:  GOUACHE Dick Blick  art store is located at 1115 NW Glisan St, Portland, OR 97209. DETAILS: When: Saturday, February 3rd, 1-3PM Where: Dick Blick Art Store 1115 NW Glisan St, Portland, OR 97209 I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU JOIN ME!
