A new post is way past due. My apologies.

Ok great news! I am going to be in my first exhibit tonight at Maybee Gerrer Museum of Art. The show is called Doing What We CAN to Help and is a food drive for the Shawnee Salvation Army. It starts at seven and lasts till nine. Bring a can of food or two to get in. If you cant come tonight don't worry. The show will be displayed until Nov. 22nd. I will post pictures from the opening evening soon.
The project I am working on currently is a sketchbook for Art House gallery in Atlanta, Georgia. Art House Gallery is getting together a Sketchbook Library including about 1,000 sketchbooks from artists all over the world. The Sketchbook Library will be apart of a touring exhibit. The Library will be in Atlanta, New York, L.A., Chicago and St. Louis beginning the first of the year.
I also have been asked to be in an exhibit next year at IAO gallery. I am very excited about this opportunity. My mentor and friend Sunni Mercer is going to be in the show as well and I am so excited and feel really privileged to get to show with her. I will have more details about this show as the time draws near.
This has been an exciting time for me. When I started out the year I never dreamed that I would get so many great opportunities. Who knows what else could happen. The years not over yet.
Blessings,
Kristen

Hello. Its been a while I know.




I had an interesting weekend. I will spare you the ugly parts and stick to the cool parts. I got to go with my fience to a reptile show; My first one ever I might add. It was pretty enlightening. I got to see cool little things like these...
























Arent they beautiful. I'm still not keen on the snakes but some of them are really beautiful. While I was with these beautiful creatures I got to meet some of their really great handlers and owners. Jeff Littlejohn is a guy who breeds skinks(not skins. so sorry about that) but also does incredible art work. Go here to see it. jefflittlejo.googlepages.com
I got to my point in a round about way but those beautiful creatures have inspired me so I felt it important to share with you all.

The sound (unfinished) 11"x14"


I've started my classes this semester and I think I'm going to like them alot. I'll have some work from them to put up here soon.

This piece I posted a while ago but I've cropped it so it looks better and is easier to see. Its all I have to share for now.

I'm getting antsy.
I need to be improving and promoting. They both kind of depend on each other though. I need to improve to have things that people will be interested in and I need to be promoting so people will know me. Time is my enemy at present.
I do have a new Myspace for my art. Check it out! www.myspace.com/breathingroomforthesoul

My evacuation routes project is going pretty well. It got off to a slow start but I'm half way done with them and my boss is really liking what I'm doing. I couldn't be happier.

Check back for new photos of my art.
