2016 was my first full year in my new home of New Jersey. Most of it was spent in Surf City, just a block from the ocean, except when I was in Oregon for a conference to promote Cory Huff’s How to Sell Your Art Online, a book which features my career, and when I was in Belgium for an exhibition of my art. I love living by the beach and I adore the community I get to be a part of, including the MT Burton Gallery, which shows my art!

My marketing expertise was recognized in interviews with Your Creative Push, the Redbubble Blog, and Jackson’s Art Blog as well as in a mention on 99U. This shout-out from a fellow artist made me very happy, as did this article in my local paper, The SandPaper. I also got a bit of French press in the form of this post on Mr Mondialisation.
