The current mental getaway is of Shanghai China. Have you ever been? It is definitely on my list of places to visit one day. I was catching up on an older Travel and Leisure magazine from last fall which inspired me to grab my sketchbook and immerse further into the city. I hope you enjoy.

A day late with #MusicMonday due to some issues with posting yesterday but still wanted to share of course. They are a little sample of what I have been listening to this past few week while driving in a hot car with the windows down, exercising to and while creating new work. I have actually been sharing more of my experimental art along with other style pieces more and more on my Instagram so make sure to check it out. I will try to post the full versions here as well soon.

Have been getting more then usual done in the studio thanks to some constant rain keeping me indoors. This one was inspired by a few older pieces of mine, About a Pearl, Figure, and Current. Also the pose is inspired by the beautiful Alicia Vikander.

Summer is in full swing around my home. I have been keeping busy fitting in fun activities for my daughter and her friends with many trips around the city enjoying anything related to being outdoors. Keeping up with all of that though I have to make sure to try to adjust my schedule to my already busy filled days with work. So as the kids get to sleep in, the best solution for me is getting uninterrupted time before the sun comes up. I used to be such the night owl, but over time it has taken its toll on me. I just feel better with a full nights rest and not to mention my skin agrees!
Happy Monday x

Sitting here working in slow motion due to a horrible sinus cold, it has been ages btw since I have been sick and trying to get through the day as normal as possible is becoming impossible, but as long as I make time for rest early tonight I will feel somewhat balanced,.... hopefully.
This past few weeks though I have finished a handful of projects for others, snuck this personal one in and now I can (finally) begin some larger scale pieces that I have been dying to start!! Sick or not I am painting!
I will share as I finish, but also the process and #BTS on Instagram of course.
