My mom retired a little while ago and decided to pursue her passion and dream of studying art. She has been painting for quite some time and drawing since she was very young but she wanted the foundation and community that study tends to afford. She loves it. And it’s all she talks about now, which isn’t a bad thing. I wasn’t sure what she’d churn out when it came to styles and media that she wasn’t natively interested in pursuing but I do like the variety of pieces she has produced. It’s weird to know that this is basically the beginning but i’m definitely curious about what she’ll produce next.

She recently got picked up by Agora in New York and will have her first official show there in a few months. I put together a very quick site for here which you can see here but when I have time, I’d really like to put something special together for her. Feel free to take a look, cheer her on, or even better, purchase something here.

Here is some of her work.

I’ve been meaning to post about this for a few weeks now but…life, I suppose. Life. It’s so good but it’s busy.

At any rate, I was able to provide a helping hand with a redesign for a local yoga / pilates studio—the newly opened MuseMovement Studio. This was probably the tightest timeline I’ve been able to meet in quite some time but we were able to bang out something that met the studio’s vision. Much of the design work was fleshed out beforehand which helped provide some structure and direction that ultimately informed the finished product. I have to say the studio owner was quite a trooper as she had to deal with not only the logistics of finding and opening up a new space in a physical sense but also this digital one.

I also got to do the photography and few of the those shots are on the site at the moment. That was pretty fun.

If you’re in the market to try a new studio, perhaps check them out. They offer yoga, pilates, and rehabilitation therapy (with some spiffy new reformer to boot) with a roster of teachers that’s already grown in the few weeks it’s been since the site went live.
