Regency Shop – An Online Furniture Store With Modern Appeal


I have recently come across the company called Regency Shop, it’s an online furniture store with a modern appeal. If you like clean, sleek lines with leather and metal then this shop may be perfect for you. In the very near future they will also be adding original artwork to their line and a few of my original paintings will be available for sale on their site. So today I am excited to share this high end online furniture shop with you.

Lots Of New Paintings Despite The Crazy New Puppy


So I’ve managed to get quite a few new paintings done in the past couple of weeks. It hasn’t been easy though since our new puppy Bosco the Boxer seems to follow me everywhere. I’ve been doing a lot of my painting outside lately, I’m trying to keep the mess down in the house as well as get some fresh air. But it’s been a struggle carting the supplies out and holding a puppies leash tight in my fist while he jumps up and down (literally) with excitement. It must look comical to anyone watching as I dodge his jumps and trip over his leash, paint tubes falling, my expression grim as I try my best not to yell at the dog. The dog that wants nothing more then my love and attention, and possibly my hand to lick relentlessly.

So despite the puppy and all his activity here are my newest paintings.

Featured Artist Interview: Haydee Torres From UGallery


I have not done a featured artist interview in awhile and have been really wanting to get back at it. What better way to start then with one of my favourite figurative artists Haydee Torres. This is an artist that I have admired for quite a few years now, we have been on a few of the same selling sites together and after having watched her art progress over the years I have just recently gotten to know her a little more personally and I am so thrilled to share her work through my blog. You will find her art to be brilliantly colourful, mysterious and emotionally packed. You are left wanting to learn the story behind each piece, the story behind the eyes of her subjects. It’s art you can really feel.

Here is her interview.

For about 9 years.

How did you come to choose art as your life path?

When studying Fashion Design I realized how much I enjoyed the art part of my curriculum.

I received a lot of positive critic and encouragement from my instructor and for the first time I was called an artist! Off course at that moment I was not planning to be a painter, so I just ignored it. I took some fine art classes, but I was not really convinced that art was from me until I took a live drawing class, then I just knew I had found my niche.

Was your family supportive of your choice to pursue art as a career?

My family is very supportive and very patient with me:)

What motivates or inspires you or your artwork?

My motivation is the love of the process and the satisfaction of the act of painting. Then come the subject, color, mediums and techniques, which allow for the creation of the painting to take place.

What obstacles have you faced in your career as an artist and how did you overcome them?

My biggest obstacle has been time. I cannot ignore my obligations as a wife and a mother so everyday is a balancing act. Sometimes it can get pretty disorganized but my husband is a great cook, so nobody is going hungry.

Do you have a favorite artist and if so who?

I do admire many artist mostly in the Expressionists movement like: Egon Schiele, the Bay Area Figurative artist, and the figurative expressionists from the San Francisco area Elmer Bischoff, Richard Diebenkorn, and David Park.

What other interests or hobbies do you have?

I don’t really have time for hobbies, but I love to watch movies and TV series in the horror science fiction genre.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I want to get into sculpting so I can mix painting and sculpting.

If you could give an aspiring artist three pieces of advice what would they be?

Learn everything that you can, eventually it will find its way into your work.

Be yourself. Work everyday, if you cannot draw or paint just use your imagination! Handle your self and your work in a professional manner.
