First time published!

Stampington & Company has published my art! It really is exciting to see your work in such a beautiful magazine as Somerset Studio! I am honored and feel so giddy!


I was torn as to what I was going to create for the submission because well, the classics, there are so many! Poe was a thought and then an image of Moby Dick popped into my brain and I just had to create it.

“ Moby” was a really fun piece to make. You can’t see it in the photo but the body of the whale is raised by adding several coats of gel medium. I like the texture of the wood canvas and how it reacts with the paint.

I would sincerely like to thank Stampington for their recognition, it’s truly awesome!
