Featured Artist for KCAC Artist Lifestyle Project on Instagram

Happy to announce that I will be the featured artist for KCAC Artist Lifestyle Project on Instagram. Please follow me starting October 29, 2015, for six days on Instagram @kcartistscoalition and see a week in the life of this KC artist. My hopes are to share some of my inspiration, along with a few works in progress and possibly the process of a commission in the works. If time allows, (it is Halloween you know,) you might even witness a painting marathon of sorts. Who knows what the week holds?
