The Easy Way I Got Started Painting With Acrylics

One of the most common questions I get asked about painting is: What supplies do you use and where do you buy them? I am writing this to save myself from repeating my answer over and over. I mean, I don’t mind, but this will be much more helpful, for me and you. So, painting …

A Burst of Painting Creations: Abstract Water, Floral, & Wave

The other day, I had one of those bursts of painting inspirations, and blasted out 4 pieces in 24 hours. This happens every once in awhile, where inspiration meets urge and opportunity. Piece after piece, the motto is “paint, paint, and paint some more!” These kinds of days are so satisfyingly exhausting, I love them …

Create Your Own Art Space, Even Under Challenging Circumstances

You can create art in just about any space if you get a little creative. When I got back into painting in 2007, it was not an ideal situation for creating art, or so I thought. My boys were 2-years old and 8-months old, and I was overwhelmed with life. We lived in a small studio space …

Creation Spotlight: Black, Red and Gold Floral Painting

This piece has been in my mind’s eye for some time now, a darker painting with metallic colors for the floral design. I actually did this piece to go along with a photoshoot I recently did. As it goes with any of my pieces, especially the ones with metallic paints, different lighting situations change the …

Creation Spotlight: Gold and Blue Spiral Painting

When I got back into painting in 2008, I started by creating a spiral, with one color. I needed the simplicity at the time, as painting with two babies to care for wasn’t easy to do. I gave myself permission to keep things really simple by starting with one color, one motion. It turned into …

A few weeks ago, I had a unique opportunity to paint my art onto a wedding dress modeled by Erin Wong, 2014 Miss Earth Guam for the Pacific Daily News Guam Bridal Guide. Big thanks to Hannah Iriarte for reaching out to me for this project. The concept is to show the art as if …
