Cannot believe its a year since I last posted!! So much has happened I don't even know where to begin. But in most recent news I have moved out of my studio - yes I am temporarily displaced lol! Speaking of 'temporarily displaced' check out what popped up on social media last week. I was aware of who purchased the piece but the story behind it was a little mystery. To get the gist of the story check my post from August 2014.......Art touches the Heart :)
I was so honored to be awarded twice at the 2016 Poinciana Festival celebrating art, film & music in the Cayman Islands. An amazing event that showcased some brilliant local talent.
Day's Catch - Best Scenic Painting/Drawing Award
Ms Nell & Tommy - Best Subject Painting Award
I'm not a portrait artist by any means but I felt the need to paint this image to honor my neighbor Ms Nell pictured with her beloved Tommy - a true Caymanian icon!
Started the year off with a new show 'Serenity' at The Gallery, Ritz Carlton. What a great turnout with over 30 artists on display. The show runs through May.
Happy artist happy customers!

Other events this month...
If you're on Island, head down to the Ritz Carlton Gallery for their new exhibition 'Emerging'. The work is up for a couple of months and you'll find a large display of artwork & photography for sale. This exhibition also features some very talented young artists from one of the Island's local schools. We were really impressed and actually tempted to purchase a couple pieces ourselves :)
