I'm very excited to announce that my work will be shown alongside other Dalvero Academy artists at the Mystic Seaport Musuem. We had a lovely opening this past Saturday and I thought I would share a sneak peek of some of the artwork that is now hanging. The show illustrates the Charles W. Morgan's historic 38th Voyage around New England. We followed and visually documented the ship as it made it made it's journey. Each artist also created some beautiful work, illustrating various topics from American Whaling history to current Ocean conservation issues. Also please check out our website for the show at DalveroMystic.
Prepping some artwork for an upcoming show with the Dalvero Academy at Mystic Seaport this November!
A few more thumbnails from my trip to Mystic Seaport this past Winter.
Here are a few thumbnail drawings I did on my last trip to Mystic Seaport with the Dalvero Academy. It was lovely to see the seaport in all white! The water was frozen over and the snow was falling in big magical flakes!
It's another cold winter day in New York City, and I'm just dreaming about warmer weather! Here's a sketch of the warm ocean from last summer.
I've been asked to join a 20 Day Art Challenge with some fellow artists. The challenge is to do a drawing a day for 20 days! My theme is the "People of New York". I thought this would be a great way to capture the people around me on a day to day basis. This city is filled with such diverse and interesting people, that all add to the electric energy around us.
Since I'm dreaming of warmer weather, I thought it would be a great time to share some of my sketches from this past summer. Here are a few I did on my family trip to the Outer Banks, NC in July.
Here's a quick subway drawing. I love trying to capture the unique gestures and personalities of each subway rider!
I am currently working on an illustration project in conjunction with Dalvero Academy, at Mystic Seaport. This project will focus on educating and engaging the public on whale conservation, and how it effects both marine and human populations today. In recent research whales have been proven to be ecosystem engineers. Whales make a huge difference on underwater ecosystems. They have powerful and positive influence on the functions of the oceans, global carbon storage, and even the health of commercial fisheries. Below are a few studies illustrating this concept.
I had a wonderful experience whale watching with the Dalvero Academy last winter in Cape Cod. We attended an informative and very inspiring Whale Naturalist Conference in Province town. On the boat we were lucky enough to see a humpback whale and her calf! We also were able to see some Right whales and a school of dolphins.
