Since starting up my internship at Kunstverein Braunschweig in Braunschweig, Germany over a week ago, I have been so busy with office work and events around the city that I haven’t been able to properly take a look and share some photos of the current show in the Kunstverein’s main gallery. This excellent show entitled NOWhere by Berlin artist Dirk Bell, is spread throughout the Kunstverein’s two floors and is comprised of drawings, paintings, sculptures, installations, video, and sound pieces.

I recently got the opportunity to visit the painting studios at the Braunschweig University of Art in Braunschweig, Germany. It’s always so exciting to me to visit others’ studios and I was blown away by the work I saw!
Hello from Braunschweig, Germany! I finally made it! Here I am standing in front of the local Kunstverein, aptly named Kunstverein Braunschweig haha, where I will be working for the next 2 months!
I’ve already been hard at work documenting events like an experimental musical performance & artists talks, and copy editing English transcripts for upcoming art catalogues soon to be published. Could not be more excited about everything that has happened so far and what’s to come. More pictures to come soon!
As I leave Italy tomorrow, I’m finally getting around to looking through my photos and reminiscing on some of the best art I have ever seen in my life at the Uffizi Gallery in Florence, Italy.
Jet lag is getting the better of me but I’m finally in Italy! I’m in and around the Florence area soaking up everything. Pictures to come soon!
In the process of finishing up some Thank You cards and I figured out how I’m sealing all my future Thank You cards.
Snippet of a new painting that I completed for an Indiegogo donor. Almost done with the others, and then I can mail them out!
Would you say there is a bit of humour in your artwork or your process?
Yessss definitely! So much of my work is personal and I feel that many facets of my personality come through in what I create.
Hey everyone! Be sure to read this fun little interview I did with forgetgood for their Summer 2014 issue. This online magazine is full of other great artists too, so be sure to check them out and follow Forget Good’s blog!
