Weeeeeee!! After long months of waiting, I can at long last share that I will be a part of Disney's WonderGround Gallery in Downtown Disney. It's been a childhood dream of mine to somehow work with Disney and it's finally coming true. The gallery opens on June 9th and features Pixar-Disney-inspired and Mickey Mouse-inspired original, unique art by a new generation of artists, and I'm so flattered that Disney picked me to be one of the special few. I have a couple pieces up, one being especially near and dear to my childhood heart. I do hope you can come and perhaps add one of the pieces to your home!

Side note: they apparently found me at a craft fair and I had noooo idea. That just goes to show you never know what surprises will come when you're in your element & doing what you love. Luck finds you. If I went back in time and told my 10 year old self that I'd be drawing Mickey Mouse for Disney forrealz & not just in cheesy basketball poses (see below), I... yeah. No words :)
