Recent Awards

My husband is so sweet to watch our little boy (already a year old next week!) for a few hours every weekday morning so that I can work in the studio and continue with my art career.  Um...also...it helps me keep my sanity.  And ONE of those days a week I dedicate to searching for galleries, submitting to shows, and basically keeping up with the business side of things.  Not my favorite thing to do, but a necessity as an independent artist who wants to get paid occasionally.   The nice thing about submitting to shows is winning awards!  Here are some recent ones:

Honorable Mention - Pleasanton Art League Show

Now, those were local shows...and though it's nice to be recognized locally, but the next award really made my week.  I happened to win 2nd place out of 970 entries from around the world.  NINE HUNDRED AND SEVENTY.  Sweet!  And they even have their own YouTube Channel...
