It’s been a couple of days since opening night and I have caught up on some sleep. What an incredible night! The gallery was packed. There were so many people who I knew and I spent all night talking to people and still feel that there were so many I didn’t have a chance to chat with. I am overwhelmed by the support I have received from the media before and after opening night along with the support of my friends, family and the art community. I will never forget this special night. Thank you everybody for making this such a magical night. So far I have sold 6 paintings and 9 photographs. If you missed opening night, the show is still on until April 3 at 6:00pm. Hours are Tues & Thurs: 12:00pm to 9:00pm and Wed, Fri, Sat: 12:00pm to 6pm.
Here are some links to some of the coverage I got:

I love Switzerland so much I am even watching the Bachelor right now… they are in Switzerland and not just anywhere, they are in Zermatt, so extremely close to my hometown Visp. The images of the Matterhorn and Zermatt are making me so homesick and I thought when better to post my Pecha Kucha presentation from a few weeks ago.

I have been going through childhood pictures for my solo show and it’s been making me feel nostalgic. So many memories that are flooding into my head and heart. I really did have a wonderful childhood and I wish I didn’t live so far away from my family.
Here are a few of the pictures. What are your favourite childhood pictures and memories?

The opening of my solo exhibition is exactly 7 months away! I have a good start and I do feel better about it then a month ago. But when I think about it only being 7 months away I do start to feel a bit nauseous. I just got back from a night in my studio. I have 3 paintings finished and I am working on a very large piece right now. I am also planning on incorporating some installations, photography and maybe some Polaroid transfers. I have a first draft of my artist statement and I have started a large to-do list containing everything from a press release, invitations, posters, food to music etc.
It’s going to be 7 months of spending every spare minute in my studio. It feels exciting, scary, overwhelming, invigorating and inspirational. I just have to tell myself that I can do this.
Check back for some updates on my process.
