Last weekend I completed a very special project at The Shops At Pembroke Gardens. I was commissioned to paint the very first of their 56 benches and trash receptacles located throughout the promenade of this amazing outdoor mall.

Doing Business As… Artist Entrepreneurs

Emergent

The Doing Business As… Artist Entrepreneurs Exhibition was founded in 2009. A collaboration between myself, Virginia Fifield and LeeAnna Yater. We took it upon ourselves to produce a professional high quality art exhibition in a public gallery; the three of us designed the concept and curated the first exhibition, complete with a catalogue to document the artists and their work.

Our mission was to launch the careers of it’s participating artists by mentoring and providing practical artistic experience and exposure for their artwork. The positive outcome of the first DBA exhibition persuaded us to continue this yearly event and promote our brand Doing Business As… Artist Entrepreneurs.

28th Annual Broward County Arts Teacher Of The Year

Congratulations to Timothy Leisner and all the winners at the 28th Annual Broward County Arts Teacher Of The Year.

Teaching Artist Of The Year Award

The Arts Teacher of The Year Awards Program highlights exceptional art teachers as well as arts students in Broward County. The event was held on Wednesday, November 6 at the Broward Center For The Performing Arts.

“Art education and opportunities to explore the Arts are essential for well rounded learning.  Children, and adult learners, benefit from exposure to the Arts  and art educational opportunities.  It saddens me to think that in many schools and so called educational institutions, the arts are viewed as unimportant and not fundamental to learning.  Art Education provides learning about the Arts, creativity, reaches into other curricular learning arenas, and supports personal and social-emotional growth.  Art education is vital to the education of All.” Timothy Leistner, ED.D.

Peace To The World

We all have the power to choose peace…

In this particular case it was such an honor to work with organizations that have the power to spread such an important message, to Choose Peace & Stop Violence. Teaching youth to stop bullying, to choose peace over violence helps to create safe and healthy neighborhoods, vibrant with opportunities for positive change.

Thank You to The African American Research Library, Chalk 4 Peace, The Urban League of Broward County and Anita Fraley from United Way of Broward County.

You’ve Got Mail… Royal Mail

Dani Lynn and I were so excited to receive a second thank you note for the gift of The Fairy Tale Project Trilogy that we sent to Prince George.

Jacklyn Laflamme

We all have the power to be thankful and to thank others…

A nod, a phone call, a handwritten card, a warm sincere note to show gratitude can make someone’s day. The people you are thanking will feel fabulous about themselves and what they did to reach out to you.

Thank You to Dani Lynn who works tirelessly on the Fairy Tale Project.

Larger Than Life

I just stepped out for a moment, I could not help but notice the giant shadow of me. I had to seize the moment to snap this picture.

I am going to title it “Larger Than Life”.

photography, shadows, image

The Power to be larger than life lives inside every artist…

We all have the power to be monumental, to be more interesting and more exciting than an ordinary person or thing.  In this particular case a simple shadow reminded me that I can become whatever I want to be. Seize your moment to be larger than life.
