I was lucky. By the time I was 18, I had a core group of friends with whom I’m still friends with today. Amongst them was Ashy, a painter who shared my love of rock and dreams of being an artist. Over the years we have had a ridiculous amount of fun, planning pointlessly schemes (like moving out to l.a. and living off of contentential breakfast) and going to way too many rock concerts.
Besides our clear shared awesomeness (pics don’t lie right?) and our shared love of 80’s hair metal, we both share our dreams of being working artists. It has been so helpful to have someone else experience the sames highs and lows of art as I have. And now that we have put in YEARS and YEARS of work, we are both finally starting to see the payoffs of our labors.
She just (yes i’m gushing!) got into a pretty sweet art show. Unforunately, as she lives in Buffalo and the show is there, I won’t be able to go. So I’m sending some virtual love, and telling all my readers to check out her work at her website Yellow Blazer’s Studios. And if you happen to be in the Buffalo area check out her work, you won’t regret it!
