East Austin Studio Tour...what a wonderful time to be in our beautiful city of Austin!
There was so much to see and experience this year at East and I am so pumped to share some snapshots with you!
Let's start with the first weekend:
I loved getting to see my dear friend, Meena Matai doing her thing at the Austin School of Film!
Of course, my little girl wanted to get in on all the action, too!
My girl, Eli Halpin, was totally rockin' it, too!
Check out all this CUTENESS! I can't help but fall in love with a new piece every single time I visit her - neither can my little girl. She loves all of Eli's precious animals and insists that they would look great in her playroom...tempting!
This big fluffy guy was my favorite! Omg I can't resist!
Valentina Dorsa has some gorgeous work as well, love all the color and texture she uses!
Anna Swanson's vibrant colors and cute illustrations are a total attention grabber. Such happy vibes!
And that's a wrap for weekend #1!
Here we go with weekend #2!
My cousin Umbreen Ahmad - so sad I didn't get to see you, but I did enjoy seeing your work!
Ty Nathan Clark's art had me swooning...
I got to meet him and he explained what his latest collection was all about!
It's always nice to hear the artist's story - it helps me understand their work on a deeper level.
Here's my friend, Lys Santamaria's work station. She was doing a live demonstration of her beading during the tour, so cool!
Hanging out at the Pump Project with my ladies, Lys and Camila!
YASSS girl power!

This one was one of my favorite pieces by Caitlin G McCollom.
Really jaw-dropping! I'm so pleased that I was able to see her work in person, I have been following her for a few years now. :)
Having a blast with my girl Tay. Love seeing how much she has grown as an artist! Keep doing' your thing girl!
Stopped by Hattie Lindsley's place and fell in love with her work all over again! She was showing in her home and what a beauty the combination of her vaulted ceilings and large scale abstracts were together!
These talented ladies!
Billy Claire Marie and Stephanie Jimenez were showing at Revelry!
Claire is my workout buddy at the gym, and boy is she a rockstar! So grateful for all the motivation and today all the artistic inspiration!
Here's one of Claire's little gems :) You just can't resist these sweet nothings... they just feel so right!
Last but not least, Alicia Philley - all about the tape!
How cool are her designs and colors?! I'm so into it!
So, it was a FABULOUS two weekends of East Austin Studio Tour. It was so nice to see my artist friends and also discover so many more talented artists that our city has to offer!
I love being able to support my fellow artists whenever I get the chance to :)
Already looking forward to what next year has to bring! Buy LOCAL and Support small business!
