Grazie Rome and Dorothy Circus Gallery!

I’m back home in Canada now after an amazing trip and opening reception at Dorothy Circus Gallery in Rome! Italy, you slay me with your sheer unrivaled beauty, and all your amain pizza and gelato.

This trip was such an amazing experience that brought me back to my Italian roots. I spent a lot of time with my family getting back in touch with my Italian side. I adore the culture and the language so I cant’ tell you how fun it was to speak it 24/7 during my trip! It’s always great to stay in touch with your culture.

I explored a lot of the cities art. Spent hours studying various masterpieces until my eyes started swirling. Its going to be really fun to incorporate what I saw and was inspired by into my art now.

A big and humungous thank you to the ladies of Dorothy Circus. They were so lovely and wonderful. The show is spectacular and the opening was unbelievable. Thank you to the fans and supporters who came by. I was pretty excited to meet Paolo and see Alessia Lannetti at the opening. I was surrounded by lovely people and amazingly talented artists.
I have so much to share and learn and give thanks to this trip!
I hope that my artwork can bring as much joy to Rome as Rome brought to me. If anyone would like to contact the gallery to enquire about making one of my paintings all their own to love and cherish please contact sales@dorothycircusgallery.com.
Big hugs Roma I will miss you!

Urban Super Star Festival in Naples

With my solo show paintings now at the framer’s, and all the material for the preview getting prepared, I want to talk about a show happening THIS weekend, in Naples, Italy (home of the original pizza). A HUGE group show opens on Saturday with some of Pop Surrealism, Urban Contemporary, and Lowbrow artists from the US, Canada, Italy and Europe!  I’m proud to be a part of this show, and it is a great way to dip my toe into Italian waters before unleashing the solo in June!  Without further ado, here is all the info (and check back regularly for updates on the show, the artists and the artwork!):
