Project 7×7 features the work of seven diverse artists from the Dallas area. We each worked on all seven pieces in turn, to create seven artworks that will be auctioned live for charity (Alley’s House) on Friday night.
Alison Jardine, Patricia Rodriguez, Douglas Winter III, Kevin Obregon, Dan
Colcer, Kevin Gilmore and JMR.
Each artist will also show solo work, and I will be featuring new paintings such as the one shown above, Our Mother’s House.
I hope you can join me there on Friday. If not, below I have included a selection of my new work that will be exhibited during this exhibition.

The Transcultural Collective
I am a member of the newly founded Transcultural Collective, a group comprised of international artists, filmmakers, and writers.
Founded by Iraqi artist Waleed Arshad, our first project aims to express the experiences of Iraqi families living in exile in the DFW area, both from their experiences in Iraq, and since moving to the US.
We will be creating an exhibit that will tour museums and cultural centers, and countries, launching in the Iraqi Cultural Center in Washington, DC.
We will be creating a new website with more details of our projects, and I will share this in my next month’s newsletter.
CBS 11 Interview
My feature on CBS11 still hasn’t shown yet! TV schedules are volative, it would seem. However, it is currently scheduled to air on the 10pm news on June 10th, during the Tony Awards!
I have no guarantee it will actually air though, but if you want to set your DVR you never know…!
London 2012 Olympics ~ the LIVELIVE Project
With the Olympics approaching, there’s every chance you’ll see one of my iPad works showing on the BBC’s Big Screens that are all around the UK!
People tweeted using the hashtag #celebratedpoem, and poet Dan Simpson crafted a poem he’ll perform from them. I’ve chosen some of these phrases to create iPad drawings off, and also shared them using this hashtag.
