Art Lovers, you are invited to the
PaintDragon Studio Grand Opening!


The Alling Building at 240 State Street, New London, CT. 

After 16 years, PaintDragon gets a new home! In November of 1999, I registered the part-time interior design and faux finish business, conducting it out of my two-bedroom apartment in New London. Since then it has grown into a full-time interior design, art and Reiki practice, and it became evident that a workspace outside of the home was needed. After years of searching for the right place, it is with great excitement that I move my art studio to 240 State Street. (Reiki and interior design practices will remain at 519 Montauk.)

    My future studio is one of several artists' studios in the Alling Building
Please join me, Michael J. Peery and Angela Moore at our holiday party and celebrate the Grand Opening of PaintDragon studio.

Street Art

   Venezia: Hogre and Firenze: Dinosaur
One of my favorite things to do while traveling is photographing street art. I pass up the usual tagging, which is the pathetic equivalent of pissing on a wall, and opt for something that brings a smile to my face or dazzles me with wit and talent. Yes, it is still graffiti, and illegal, and vandalism, but when it captures my inner artist, I snap a pic. 

It was the photographs taken in Florence, Venice and Rome that finally prompted me to do something with these illicit works. Using an image transfer technique on encaustic, I created a limited edition of some of my favorites on 4" wood panels that are a perfect gift for your special hooligan. They will be on sale at the open studio in December for a modest $75 each. 
   Firenze: David, Venezia: Stella and Venezia: Rialto S. Marco

Tuesdays at the Attic

Artists talking about art and the art world, it's simultaneously dense and fun. Have something to contribute or in need of inspiration? Join us!
