A Day in Avondale is this Saturday


The magical hidden garden inside of this secret Gem of a hair salon.

Savvy Coif, 2869 N Milwaukee
Chicago, IL

I will have original paintings as well as many of the original illustrations from Everybody Hoops but me on Display during the artwalk.   The weather looks like it will be a beautiful day to visit the more than 50 open studios and art events going on.   Here is a link to the 2013 show map.     http://adayinavondale.files.wordpress.com/2013/03/2013-map-back3.jpg      Most of the shows are on Milwaukee Ave between Kimball and Pulaski.   All events go from 11am-7pm

Ms Anna will be out at The Renegade Craft Fair this weekend.

Come out to get faerified and/or utopianized by Ms Anna and her magical roaming art cart this weekend at the Renegade Craft Fair. 11-7 both Saturday and Sunday on Division between Damen and Paulina. Look for the fun purple cart with the bells and sparkles with all the colorful people walking around it.http://www.renegadecraft.com/chicago-summer-makersrenegade

So Happy For Tracyville



I’m so excited for Tracy.   I’ve been following her work for a while and this new line of her is stellar!     Lots of cute, fun, down to earth and recycled dolls.  Her product line officially launches tomorrow and you should be one of the first to check it out.

My painting; I went way out there, painting with my hands, using pencil and black paint!

This was just an awesome day of getting to know some of my fellow artists in Chicago, doing yoga, meditating, and taking risks with paint. This workshop took place in Nicole Northways new storefront on division, the super whimsical, local, and eclectic One Strange Bird http://www.onestrangebird.com/
