I haz a sad :( my studio is empty, for a little while I am an artist without a studio space. Renovations should be done in a couple of weeks so in the mean time I'm catching up on some computer work. I have a couple of commission pieces that need to get started so I'll be working on those and I'm slowly expanding my line of cellphone cases, pillow cases and silk scarves. I'm uploading new ones to my Etsy store almost every day!
I'm working on a catalog so I can go and visit some of the boutiques in downtown to see if anyone is interested in carrying my pieces. Exciting stuff!
It is frustrating though, not being able to paint. I have SO many piece waiting for me so I'm very eager to get my space bad so I can get back to work. Hurry, hurry mr. renovation guy!
I did manage to finish my previous commission piece before the deadline, just! Pfff! I was still painting while they were emptying my studio, haha! but I got it done!

It is 2015 and it is cold, cold, cold here in Monréal. Everything is covered in a thick layer of ice and it is so, so slippery outside. Luckily my studio is nice and warm and I have LOADS of stuff to work on. Before the holidays I created a whole bunch of new compositions so now it is time to produce, produce, produce! I also have a couple of commission pieces that need to be done so I won't be bored, oh no!
The picture above shows one of the pieces I am currently working on, it's a Big triptych of New York (three 48"x36" panels) and I'm really excited about it! It is really nice to be back in the studio again, especially since my new easel arrived, I already did a little bit of work on it and it is absolutely amazing! So sturdy and versatile, I can literally change everything, angle, height, size you name it!
Something else exciting that has been happening is that I started working with Art of Where, a Montréal based company that creates high end products with artwork printed on them. I now have a series of cellphone cases (iPhone and Samsung), Pillow cases and Silk scarves available in my Etsy store, aren't they awesome?!
