2015

MFUSCO red rocks 1Hello there! I hope that the new year is starting off strong with new set intentions and goals!! I wanted to make a quick announcement that I have Thursday, March 19 available for Breckenridge’s Summit Invitational  Expo. I have been keeping my schedule open for the show, and not just booking locals, hoping to catch those that are traveling and wish to collect a special piece from me. I am looking to book a medium sized piece, that can be finished in 5-7 hours. The dates for the entire show are March 19-22 2015, in Breckenridge Colorado. It will be a special show, so I hope that you are making the trip out!!!!  Please fill out the contact form if interested.

I made a last minute change in my schedule, to make the trip to Hell City Fest in OHIO May 1, 2, and 3. I have May 1 – 2 still available and I am being very selective on the piece and placement on the body for the show. But please fill out the contact form if interested and have an idea to share with me! Other then those open dates, I do have a waiting list going for MAY.  Now that the holidays have pasted and my schedule is turning into spring time, I will be booking up more quickly from spring through the Fall.  I am reaching out for those wanting larger scale pieces, large subject matter over large space fitting the body appropriately. Wild life and sea life, organic and rich. I am also open to adding in geometric shapes where it best fits, as more humans are realizing this connection in the natural world, it’s being translated even further into the art world then ever before. I am open to this imagery where it fits best.

June brings the Toronto tattoo show in Canada, as well as August Nashville and Phoenix shows. Booking for all of these. So touch base to connect!!  Hope to hear from you soon, and thank you all for your support!!

Below are necklaces that I made that I still currently have available, if interested send me a message through the contact form.

Finished Painting & for sale

Happy December! I wanted to announce that I am completely booked through January, and have a waiting list going for Feb 2015.  I also wanted to thank everyone for their continued support, offering your skin as a canvas to me for your creative collection. I look forward to 2015 and traveling to a few new places, including England, Spain, possible Nashville TN and Toronto Canada, Seattle, Oregon Off the Map, as well as Phoenix for Hell City in August! Its going to be a great year! If you are interested in getting tattooed in any of the above places please let me know now through the contact page!

Here is a new painting I finished, Flying High. 24″ by 24″ Oil on raw wood.  This painting includes the triangle that you see in much of my art.  ‘No progress without sacrifice.’ In order to make progress in anything, something must be sacrificed. This thought can be plugged into any area in life. Keep striving, keep reaching, only settle to rest and replenish. Reach for the stars and know that you must leave somethings behind  on your journey.  Move through with compassion, yet still applying self care, as this world can eat you alive.  I love this painting, and the journey I went through painting just it. I am offering it for sale, please message me through the comment page. Also the other 2 paintings are also for sale, Pima Native, and Autumn Aspen.

November Update

I currently have gone through my waiting list for December, and am now completely booked. I have a few dates available to offer in January. Following that would be a waiting list for February, just to inform you on time frame. I know with the holidays and travel it makes things tricky, but we always need to find time for ourselves, so lets start planning before another waiting list begins! Thanks so much!

giftenvelopeAlso if you wanted to gift someone you love with a gift certificate for the holidays I offer them as well, please contact me through the contact form with as much information about the gifted piece as you can, so that I can know if I am a good artist fit for the piece, as well as an estimate for you whether it be a multiple session piece or just one sitting etc. Let me know! As 2014 comes to a close I would love to thank everyone for all your support, if it wasnt for my lovely clients I would still be painting alone in my studio, but thanks to you I have canvas that is alive and breathing, sharing my art which means more to me then anything.  2014 was a great year, not too many complaints, I feel we as a whole are becoming more aware and mindful and hope that 2015 brings more love, peace and positive vibes!  Cant wait to see you all again, soon!! Namaste

 

 

Black Sage Studio

Welcome to my new endeavor!!!

Black Sage Studio is located at:
3072 Evergreen Parkway #105
Evergreen Co 80439
Phone# 970-389-7607    please update in your phone the new number

Black Sage Studio is a brand new tattoo studio and gallery,  situated in the mountains of Evergreen, in the La Plaza. The La Plaza is owned and operated by a wonderful couple, Phil and Barb who are also the owners and operators of the Evergreen Fine Art Gallery and Sculpture Garden. This wonderful gallery, apart of the American Oil Painters Society, is located in the largest of the 3 buildings, at 3042 Evergreen Pkwy. Arrive a few minutes early to take a stroll through the gallery sculpture garden. I couldn’t have decided on a more perfect location nestled behind it. I love the adobe architecture style of this building and its location directly across from Elk Meadow Park, where I enjoy mountain biking and hiking. I am excited about this new endeavor and can’t wait to share it with each client.

Travel Hints and getting here:

Take 70 west to the Evergreen Parkway heading into town. 4.5 miles, turn left onto Lewis Ridge rd. In 200 feet turn right onto Evergreen Parkway Access road.  Head straight just .3 miles and pass the beautiful front of The Evergreen Fine Art Gallery and Sculpture grounds. Turn left on Hilltop Rd, then your first left into parking lot. Building 3072 is to the right. Suite #105 come on in.

There are point to point shuttles that can take you to and from the airport and hotels, or there are plenty of car rentals on sight. Look for great deals on Priceline, and fly Southwest for some of the cheapest airfare.
