SAVE THE DATE!! The neighborhood has gone to the dogs...and you're invited!

Well, my friends, once again I'm up to my eyeballs in paint. After a brief (blink of the eye) rest after the holidays, my studio has once again turned into an explosion of canvases and paintbrushes as I prepare for my upcoming exhibition...

A bit about the show...

Last year, after completing a series of paintings, Dogs of Bryn Mawr, I discovered that I am fascinated by the way the dogs of particular neighborhoods reflect the people who live in them. I am also interested in the way dogs bring people together and create a common ground between those who might otherwise remain strangers--and I find coffee shops to be the perfect place to show this work. Why? Because coffee shops, like dogs, bring people together.

I read somewhere that one of the things that help build a strong sense of community is when neighborhoods have a gathering place. Often times, that place is a coffee shop. These layers of culture and community that are built around dogs and their people interest me greatly.

As some of us know, Linden Hills is one of the most incredible neighborhoods in Minneapolis. What makes it so good? Well, in part: THE DOGS!!

There are nearly THIRTY dogs that will be participating in the Dogs of Linden Hills. Bow-wozers!! Just for fun...imagine what that scene looks like in my studio. I'm surrounded!! You'll be able to meet many of the beautiful canines whose portraits I am painting at the opening.

Until March you will find me in only one place: yep, the studio!

In the meantime, mark your calendars!

Cozy up with a freshly roasted cup of coffee and surround yourself with dog art.
The month of March is waiting for you. ;)

May all dogs be happy!
