The Secret to Moving Fine Art

The Secret to Moving Fine ArtThey say moving households is one of the most stressful times in someone’s life. Studies have consistently reported that moving is one of the most stressful life events because of the tiny details involved in moving to a new home. If you are moving art, the transportation of art should be handled with extra care. You do not want to move to your new home and unpack your art and discover it was damaged in the moving process.

Barbie & The Little Black Dress: An Aha! Moment
People often ask me, “Don’t you get sick of painting Barbie?” My obvious answer is no. The journey of painting Barbie is never boring and each painting is always challenging.
