Art Sale & Fundraiser

I don't know about you, but this year has just flown by for me, and I just realized its already December! That being said, this is a very late post with a last minute invite.
Please join me and my fellow studio artists for a Holiday Celebration and Art Sale this Thursday (and yes, I do mean tomorrow).
Unfortunately, 2016 has been a rough year with many tragedies. As an artist, and one who shares a collective work space, the recent fire in Oakland really struck a chord with me, so I looked for ways to help out.
I will be collecting funds which will be donated to the Oakland Fire Relief sponsored by the Oakland Athletics Community Fund to help support of the victims and their families of the Ghost Ship fire. I will be making this donation on behalf of the arts community of Livermore. If you can't make it to our event tomorrow, but still want to donate, please email me, and I'll share how you can help our efforts.
Art Sale Thursday, December 8, 6:00pm to 8:00pm
62 South L Street in Livermore
In other news... I also have a mini show on display now through January. Stop in to Panama Red, get a cup of coffee, and enjoy some art.
Exhibiting now through January 4
2115 First Street in Livermore

New Pinups Ready to Go

New pinup prints are posted in my Etsy shop, and are ready to ship out!
All the proceeds go to Match Accessories. Get yours today!




















My sister-in-law was recently diagnosed with leukemia, and she could use some support right now. She and her husband are the makers behind Match Accessories, and as many of you know, their business has touched so many lives. Your purchase of these prints will go to help support their family during this trying time.

Thank you!

Ribbons for Sam - Preorder today!

#ribbonsforsam Pinup No. 1
They're almost here!

I've finished the first in the series, and prints are currently on order. Check out my Etsy shop and preorder this lovely piece today. Be sure to check back as I will be posting a different piece every few weeks.


My sister-in-law was recently diagnosed with leukemia. She's fighting with everything she's got, but she could use some support right now. Sam and her husband Jeremy are the makers behind Match Accessories and their business has touched so many lives.

Ribbons for Sam

I'm posting something a little bit different today.
 
My sister-in-law was recently diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML), a rare and incurable form of leukemia. She's fighting with everything she's got, and she's proven to be one tough cookie... but she could use some support right now.
 
Sam and her husband Jeremy are the makers behind Match Accessories, and their business has touched so many lives. We all know I'm a visual person, and not the best with words, so if you would like the full story, please see Atomic Redhead's touching blog post.
 
Now it's time to give back... so I've put together a little something. I have taken some of my old pinup drawings, (a style I used to work in quite frequently) and have reworked them. They will be available for purchase in my Etsy shop starting next week, and all the proceeds will go to help support Sam and her family... It may not be much, but every little bit helps. 

If you feel so moved, please consider purchasing one of these pieces. But if that's not your thing, there are other ways to help out as well:

Purchase a Match Accessories leukemia ribbon brooch. This fundraiser was created by Sam's husband, behind her back, in order to lift her spirits. The proceeds will help to send Sam on a trip to Disneyland and then to support her family and business.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Enter Miss Mae LaRoux's raffle. 100% of her earnings are going to support Sam and her family. You have a chance to win a brooch and a $1,000 gift certificate redeemable in Visalia, California. RAFFLE ENDS APRIL 24TH 11:59 PM
 
 
And if you would like to give back on a larger scale:
 
Donate to Leukemia Research Foundation.Your donation, of any size, will go toward worldwide medical research, patient financial assistance and support programs.
 
 

Join the bone marrow registry at Be the Match. All you have to do is provide a few cheek swabs and you are added to the registry. An estimated 1 in 300 will be selected as the best possible donor for a patient.
 
 
Thank you, and I hope you consider helping out!
