The Restrooms of Cleveland, the Book

After quite a few years, the photo book that I have slowly been working on is now available! You can order here. Which I recommend, as this will be a limited 1x run and, it has already exceeded my expectations. I'm a little disturbed by this fact. Clevelanders love their Clevelanding, man. There comes a… Continue reading The Restrooms of Cleveland, the Book

I Curated Something That’s Actually Related to Art!

Everyone's a curator these days. Right? Curator of content, of ideas, of a Pinterest board, or a music collection on your iPod. Well for the first time since 2001 (Blood Moon group show in Hollywood at the now defunct HQ Gallery) I actually curated something in the proper sense of the word. I was asked… Continue reading I Curated Something That’s Actually Related to Art!

Newly Mounted at Velvet Tango Room

My slightly S&M tribute painting to Velazquez, "Lady with a Fan Thinks You've Been Very Bad" is now on view at the best cocktail bar around, The Velvet Tango Room. Trust me I've done the tours around this country, and nothing ever seems quite as good as VTR. They saw the craft cocktail craze coming… Continue reading Newly Mounted at Velvet Tango Room

Art Print Giveaway and Craft Cocktails

If you are in the area, be sure to check out my mini show at Toast in Gordon Square before it comes down on December 14th. They have a pretty amazing menu and the happy hour is great too. Big thanks to Dott Scheinder for hooking me up. I'm glad the first painting I sold… Continue reading Art Print Giveaway and Craft Cocktails

Snaps from the Reception at BAYarts

I have to say I think that was the most packed art reception I ever had! I didn't think so many people would come out (all the way to the westside) let alone in the rain, but there we had it! My pals K&G even flew in all the way from San Francisco and we… Continue reading Snaps from the Reception at BAYarts

Down To the Wire!

I finished the paintings and the stories! I could still spend another few weeks "correcting" and tweaking them, but I guess that won't be happening. I have never, ever, worked this close up to a show. I don't like the feeling at all! Good thing I use Gamvar varnish that dries quickly. Big thanks to… Continue reading Down To the Wire!

While You Were At Art Basel Miami

Things I did while you were at Art Basel Miami... Tuesday Drank Gato Negro purchased from the gas station. Gave my cats a manicure. Ate salad for dinner and wanted to shoot myself. Wednesday It was crazy-warm, so I made Lime Rickey drinks with Rum and listened to The The “Soul Mining". Because Rum. Got… Continue reading While You Were At Art Basel Miami

One Of My Favorite Places

I'd like to mention a fun gift for any doctors, history nerds, or the plain morbidly curious people on your gift list. A membership to the Dittrick Museum!  At the Friend level you get this sweet book. Even my husband was like 'woa this book is nice!' and he's not even into that kind of… Continue reading One Of My Favorite Places

I Sort of Did Halloween

My costume for this year that I've had in mind, again, did not materialize due to inadequate planning. But, I did go to a few events around Cleveland such as the SPACES benefit, and Pierogie Dance Party at Sokolowski's (sorry, but the pierogie weren't so good that night). I made due with cat masks purchased… Continue reading I Sort of Did Halloween
