This is so exciting!! I will be setting up a temporary "studio" in the front window of the absolutely adorable store, Magpie Kids, near Porter Square in Somerville, MA. I will be working on paintings and illustrations throughout the week, and engaging with future artists. I will also be bringing some coloring sheets if kids want to join in the creativity. We are hoping to make Saturday a bit more of an event by encouraging kids to bring in their favorite toys (or purchasing new favorite toys) so I can draw on-the-spot illustrations for them to bring home. For those interested in custom pet portraits for the holidays, I will also be offering a 15% discount to those who order with me in-person at the store. My official "office hours" will be from 11am-5pm, but I will probably stay a bit later on certain days if things pick up in the store. Come say hi!
