Spring Critter Friday

Howdy everyone! It's Friday- yippee! It's been quite a while since I've posted anything- I've been busy working on my spring critters and getting ready for the April show madness! We've got shows every weekend in April, plus, a few in May- that just means more chances to finally catch up with everyone- hope you'll stop by and say hi!

Btw... I've started to phase out our Etsy shop- don't worry, I won't be shutting it down completely, but I'm listing all of the new critters in our Storenvy shop, You can also click on the Storenvy button in the right column of this blog.

Back to the spring critters, introducing...

First Saturday Friday Finds: 9 March 2012

Sounds confusing, doesn't it? Today, I'm featuring a few of my fellow artists from the First Saturday Arts Market in the Heights area of Houston, TX. The FSAM was established in 2004 by our talented and intrepid leader, Mitch Cohen, to provide an outlet for area artists to showcase their work on a monthly basis in an art festival atmosphere. On the first Saturday of every month (unless it is raining), we can be found on West 19th Street, located between Gen's Antiques and the Wind Water Gallery. Since the next FSAM is not until Saturday, 7 April 2012, this gives you the perfect chance to keep on shopping until then...

Have a great weekend everyone!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Guess what? I've been accepted to show at the 2012 FOTOFEST International Biennial Exhibition held here in Houston, TX! Woohoo! I'll be one of the featured phototographers at JoMar Visions, located at the Hardy & Nance Street Studios (A, C, E). FOTOFEST runs 16 March - 29 April 2012- there will be work exhibited by hundreds of photographers throughout the city, and several workshops are held during this time as well. I've been crazy busy this past week looking for frames and having my photos printed and matted so I'll be ready for the "hangings" the beginning of next week. This will be my first "2D-only" exhibit so far- no monsters, no customs... yikes! The critters will be there though- they were my models!

My series of nine photographs is called Critterology (so surprising!)- hope you like them! If you'd like to stop by, here is the exhibition information:
