I think we’re all experiencing a roller coaster of emotions during this quarantine. I know I sure am! I’m trying to stay sane by staying at home, working on some art, and painting walls! My boyfriend has a great podcast called Thick Skin which he records underneath our swimming pool. He wanted me to paint something cool on the walls as if it were underwater. I headed to Home Depot and picked out 3 pretty blues that match the tiles in the ceiling window looking into the pool. I think it turned out pretty awesome, after a long week of sweat and pain to get it just the way I wanted. Sometimes I really think I know what I’m doing then it turns out I really don’t- but that’s OK. I took a step back, figured out what I needed to do to make it right, and continued on.
These are the “before” pictures: Continue Reading »
This past week I had the most fun project with one of my best friends!
Jenny lives on the west side of LA and has a very boho, spiritual vibe
going on in her home. She wanted to paint something cool in her bedroom
but not have anything too busy. We thought about a few different ideas
until we came up with a mountain majesty scene in different shades of mauve. I’ve done
something similar before so I knew I could make it look right. It took me half a day
(and half a bottle of wine!) to get the first base done. The next day I drove back over
to finish up the details.
Jenny was very pleased with the final look, and so was I! It really does
look beautiful and fits Jenny’s personality perfectly.
On to the next project!

This was a super fun day joining in with Low Tide Aliens! A family from Newport Beach started making sand mandalas or “crop circles” on the beach, and it’s become a hit with locals. More and more people are showing up- young, old, artists, non artists- it’s a great way to meet people and create cool art in a BIG way.
They use non-toxic sand ordered off the internet, and only know when their next meet up is by the moon. Once they know where the low tide will be, they send out an Instagram post with the time/place ( usually in the OC area like Newport or Huntington beaches) and get to work! It’s pretty easy with everyone’s help and the result is beautiful! Definitely check them out and don’t be shy if you want to join, they’re all very friendly and love the help!

Stillhouse whiskey threw an epic housewarming party for the Arsenic fam..and it was such a blast! I love that I was able to be a part of it creatively, designing 2 different art pieces for the event. They asked me if I could come up with ideas of what we could do, focusing on 2 whiskey quotes, on 2 separate walls. Check out the gallery below to see the finished pieces!
