I always like to look at a New Year like I do at a blank canvas—with unlimited possibilities. I am however sad to see 2016 go. It was by far my most lucrative and eventful year to date, but I am very excited to see what 2017 has to offer. So far, it is already shaping up to be a good one.
I am pleased to announce that I have been Awarded the Artist Professional Development Grant by the Great Meadows Foundation. I will be using my grant money to visit Las Angeles for the first time. This will also mark the first time I’ve traveled to the West Coast. Needless to say I’m very excited. While in LA I will be visiting the LAMCA, MOCA, and Hammer Museum along with other local galleries and hopefully get to some Latino Heritage murals.
I have also found out recently that my work has been featured in the latest issue of Kentucky Homes & Gardens (Louisville)! The article is about Carriage House Interiors and their house design they did for this past Homearama—which they prominently featured two of my paintings in.

Lastly, I would like to invite you to the Opening Reception of my upcoming solo show, “Somewhere In Between Anxiety & Serenity” at the Kore Gallery (1860 Mellwood Avenue, A-117 Louisville, Kentucky 40206) on Saturday, February 4th from 5 to 8pm. The show will run through the month of February. This will be my first show at Kore Gallery and I am very grateful for them giving me the opportunity to exhibit with them. I am also very excited for this show as it will be exhibiting all new works that I have been working very hard on since my last big show this past Summer. Please spread the word and mark your calendars! I hope that you can make it.
Keep an eye out for a sneak peak of my show’s work in my upcoming Artebella Vignette which is scheduled to be posted on Friday, January 27th.
