Friends and Family,
Wow! What a month May has been and now it looks as if June is shaping up to be another big one!
one, my Kickstarter ends today and although I only reached 19% of my
funded goal I will continue working towards self publishing my
children's book no matter what! I am not discouraged only more ready to
make this happen. I want to personally thank each and every one of my
family and friends who backed my project and believed in me. I can't
express to them enough how much I appreciate the support.
also had a great success with my art showing at One Draw Two and
spending my time finding frames to personalize and neatly display my
work. Actually, I'm kinda addicted to the thrift store frame section
A new project I'm
happy to share about is for Voices 4 Animals and Children where I will
be creating illustrations for a book the founder of this organization is
writing. It is backed by UNICEF and the UN and will focus on teaching
children about healthy eating, plant based diets and protecting the
planet and animals, I was contacted by them based on my passion for art,
animals and nature. You can check out their website below for more
information about the organization.

I have so much work I've framed, I have secured a booth at the First
Friday Milwaukie on June 3rd. This will be my first time selling as a
vendor and I'm SUPER excited to share my art with my community and
become more involved with the local art scene in my hometown. The event
is free and family friendly. If your in town stop by and say hi from
5-9pm, There will be live music, food and lots of local artisans.

Another project will fire up in June that I'm stoked about as I've been contracted to illustrate a 15 page children's book.
My plate is definitely FULL
but so is my heart being able to do what I love and forge my own way in
this world as an artist. It's not an easy thing to do but it's what
I've been preparing for my entire life.
you all again for the support and encouragement of my art. Each like on
a picture or post, every nice comment and share makes a difference.
Without art life would just be boring, right?
Much love and gratitude,
