Novograts Holiday Pop-Up Shop!

Whew, what a whirlwind of a December! Between openings and auctions, commissions and holiday gifts, I have been a little winded. It has taken me a a couple of weeks to pull my bits and pieces back together! Now that I’m slightly less disorganized (for the moment) I wanted to share one of the highlights of the season, my invitation to work with the Novogratz as part of their Holiday Pop-Up Shop!

On Thursday, December 14th, I was lucky enough to be part of their month long celebration of design, art, music and good cheer! I spent the day in the shop on 14th Street live painting one-of-a-kind ornaments using my acrylic techniques. A few lucky people were able to take one home, FOR FREE, courtesy of the lovely and generous Novogratz. I also had a larger piece of my work on display and was able to talk art, holidays, and generally just hang in a gorgeous space with cool people for the day! There were musicians on hand with jazzy-seasonal songs, time to hang with Robert Novogratz and Kristine Woodward of the Woodward Gallery as well as all the other staff and visitors! It really was such an awesome experience and feel so lucky to have been a part of it! As it turns out, the Woodward Gallery has held onto the piece I brought down, “Amplified” to be part of their upcoming, so stay tuned to hear more about that!
