Gettin' It, While Gettin' Lit

June 25, 2019

It's been a busy year to say the least, and I can't quit thanking everyone who's played a part in making it such a success, so far! 


In addition to adjusting to tiny living and also a schedule in which I'm on the road touring multiple weeks out of the year, our new mountain home came with very restricted internet access. It took some time but we finally found a solution, and I'm back online full-time! 


I've got a LONG list of things to update you on, subscribe here for updates direct to your inbox as soon as they're posted!


Committing myself to the Glowing Goddess Getaway's 2019 tour schedule has kept me plenty busy, both on and off the road. In addition to driving to and from the various event locations around the country, I get to exhibit my artworks while there and also teach a creating through cannabis workshop! Beyond that, this organization has hired me for a handful of their art projects from custom graphics to designing their social media promos, merchandise to mural work. 


My work with this cannabusiness has also lead to other custom art gig's with clients in the industry I'm beyond honored to be working with/to have worked with- I'll be posting more blog updates about it all in the months to come! Subscribe here for updates direct to your inbox as soon as they're posted!


If you don't already, follow me on Instagram for daily updates from the studio and when I'm on the road! If you're not on Instagram, you'll find a live preview of my IG feed here on the home page of my website- this is where you can see more from the getaway & the work I've been doing with them, along with everything else I'm working on right now!


One of the fun projects I've been able to accomplish since being in Washington was another hand painted Blazy Susan TM!


Watch the full length time-lapse video below!



This piece sold within a month of listing it publicly online, and I'm already working out details for our next spinning tray collaboration! (Click here to see the first one I painted, last year)


Thanks always for reading, and especially for your patience with me during this time of major growth & transition! I look forward to updating you soon!


Much love,
