Join me on Friday, October 6th from 6-8pm for the opening reception of my newest solo show at Penn State, New Kensington campus. I'll be debuting new ..and somehow even more colorful.. paintings, alongside some older favorites. The title of the show todavía, translating in English to "still", alludes to the overarching history of Westernization in Latin America, and how my 2015-2017 pieces work as a collective under these same conceptual concerns.

On August 16th Radiant Hall hosted a beautiful Studio Dinner Series event at their Susquehanna location, & me + my work were invited to attend! Guests to the event got to mingle with local art lovers, were treated to a 5-course meal by Plated Trade AND left with a signed art print by one of the artists in attendance! What a deal.
