Being a Bee

I made a honeycomb with my bare hands! I welded metal with care, one by one all the shapes came together. When the shape I wanted was achieved, I spray painted it gold. It came to life instantly! I then cut and glued mylar to add the finishing touches. I was a worker bee making honeycomb!

Come In!

Have a seat, take out a blank canvas and start painting! This is a peek at my painting class at PNCA. I had to wait until the nude model had stepped away to take the photo! It's so amazing to be surrounded by so much talent!

Three D

In 3D we had to choose an object and build something using only that object. I chose yellow straws. I picked only the yellow ones out of packs of multi colored straws. The tips were cut diagonally from small to large. I glued and glued until I could not glue anymore. This swirly, twirly, hanging piece is the end result. It is over eight feet tall and hangs from the ceiling with clear fishing wire.

Photoshop Dream

We are learning Photoshop in my Digital Arts class. It's so fun to be able to manipulate and distort images to create new ones. This assignment consisted of creating a utopia. These pugs are having such a great 'ol time!

PNCA 5th Annual Benefit Art Auction

What a lucky girl! I volunteered for the PNCA 5th Annual Art Auction on February 22, 2013. It was so exciting to be involved in such a big event. There were so many beautiful pieces up for auction and so many bidders! The who's who of Portland was there and they emptied their wallets to benefit PNCA's scholarship program. Delicious food and cocktails were abundant. I met so many wonderful people. It was such a great night!

New Beginnings

One of the biggest regrets I had in life was not going to art school. It was a dark cloud looming over my head. Sometimes that cloud could get pretty stormy. One day I decided to go for it! That was the beginning of a wonderful adventure of self exploration and discovery. I started in the fall and am now navigating my second term. What a journey! I have been let loose in a world of imagination, creativity and magic.
