"The Creativity Class"

Last night I spoke before a group of 40 NC State MBA students taking a "Creativity Class." That's not the crowd I'm accustom to addressing. To their surprise, I wasn't the flighty bohemian type they were expecting. We connected and it turned out to be a fulfilling experience. They asked great questions about a career in the arts from a business point of view. I knew their language. It was great experience. One young lady said, "You could be a motivational speaker."

"Whatcha Been Up To?"

Dear Friends and Patrons,

Between my active Facebook account, visitors to my downtown Raleigh studio and friends I meet in passing, the common question asked is, "Whatcha been up to?" I usually respond, "Oh, taking care of the kids, my art, and staying busy... nothing much... business as usual." In actuality, I'm busier than ever. One day seems like two or three days. My calendar fills and the miles accumulate on my vehicles. I ask myself, "Where did today go?" So, in the upcoming days and weeks, I'll review the past year and highlight various events, exhibitions and collectors. I'll really answer the question, "Whatcha been up to?"

"First Friday was Phenomenal!"

"Untitled #5" Sold

"Untitled #4" Sold

Last night's First Friday was phenomenal! The crowd was diverse and energized. It was a big party. We had a ball. Many friends and patrons visited the studio. Art left my studio walls off to a better place, the homes of new collectors. If you weren't there, put the next First Friday on your calendar.
