Good evening everyone! I just added my River Flows painting to the site. I created it last year but hadn’t put it up. I just love the color blue and went on an abstract tip to create this painting. I love the ocean and water so simply recreated a bird’s eye view of land. The black is a target and the red is a dock. Don’t ask how these things come to me but I hope you enjoy. Oh, and if you really love it, there are prints, pillows, masks and more (as seen below) that you can buy here.

I was looking at some old Instagram photos of an amazing time I had on the beach last Memorial Day Weekend and decided to share a few. I just can’t wait for the weather to fully warm up in New York City and for a few Hamptons weekends. As an original native of Florida, I live for the beach (only the good ones though) and I adore cute summer sandals, hats, bikinis, maxi dresses and jumpers. As I finalize my summer plans and get out of these final exams at FIT, I am absolutely looking forward to summer this year!
Here’s an old painting of a beach wave that I did some time ago but I’m challenging myself to do better than that and get a bit more depth and contour in the wave and ocean water. As I said before, all of my artwork should be up on the blog before the summer is over.
Anyway, I love a good maxi dress for the summer and spotted some new ones recently that seem great for that Florida or Hamptons summer vacation weekend. Check out a few below from Tibi, Roberto Cavalli, and Diane von Furstenberg. See even more summer wear here.
So I’ve been studying waves as I want to use the ocean as inspiration for my next painting. The ocean and waves are not only gorgeous but give an automatically calming feeling.
Most of my artwork should be available for view by the end of this summer, so stay tuned.
