Here’s a little spotlight on my good friend Madison Elyse Rubenstein, who will be joining me in my studio for Art-a-Whirl! Her intuitive abstractions are so playful yet sophisticated, and I am always delighted to see what she’s working on. I’m so excited to host her as a guest artist, because we used to be studio mates, and it will be a great throwback to old times of working late in the studio with her.

She will also be doing live Attunement Paintings in my studio throughout the weekend, and you don’t want to miss seeing her process:

Friday 7-8pm
Saturday 1-2pm
Sunday 2-3pm

Minneapolis artists:

How would you feel about having a studio that you’d be able to rent? For any kind of art: music practice space, painting/drawing, photo space, etc.

Roomie and I are thinking of turning our 500+, multi room basement into an artist studio; either for one set function with one group of users, or a multipurpose studio for multiple users. It’s located in NE Minneapolis (near the Arts District), has a separate entrance from the living areas, and parking is located on the street and across in a huge (free!!) lot. We also want to install our own private darkroom, which is super exciting!

Any ideas?

Fresh new pictures

Preparing for shipment

A couple years ago, I started making colored pencil drawings of Minnesota. I was living in Germany and perhaps this was me expressing homesickness, or maybe just appreciation of my home.

These pictures, like most of these pictures on my blog, minus the gifs and snapchats, are the product of spending 100+ hours drawing + many more in Photoshop.
