The past 12 weeks have definitely been challenging. Though I was able to embrace my time in home shelter and create new synergies. I usually operate well when implementing a daily functional model of living. My coping mechanisms are essential workout routines, meditative practices and creative projects. I enjoy silence and cherish precious time alone.
Once I decided to focus my attention on positive intentions to manifest home improvements, financial growth and new work concepts, then I started a new series of drawings, booked a couple of virtual studio visits with art dealers and created a new online masterclass mentorship program to help other artists. I also made space for family time, cooking and fun with my daughter like drawing together at the park of performing tik-tok dance video challenges.
My online class is open to all artists and starts July 6th: MAKE YOUR MARK Signature Masterclass. MAKE YOUR MARK is a one week online crash course and mentorship for artists concluding in a gallery group exhibition in New York, and led by a duo of expert curator Coco Dolle and publicist Nathalie Levey. Online Dates: July 6th to July 12th, 2020 Exhibition Date: TBD.
