They say that perfection is paralysis. I am not sure who "they" are but this time - I think they got it right. With that being said, I ask you for your patience as I "move" into my new art home. I have big plans for this next year so be sure to follow me on Instagram to keep up with my art adventures.
Who is The Flip Artist?
Me! I wanted this website to be able to showcase all of my creative endeavors. I love the name and that it implies someone who can take something that isn’t all that great and flip it into something that is. I blame my HGTV watching adventures for this...
Here, I will explore and share my art creating adventures.
New Art Series: Candid Candy Conversation Hearts
I have been busy over the past couple of months exploring a new series called "Candid Conversation Hearts". It's composed of 7 original hand crafted paintings based on the classic Necco Wafers Conversation Hearts candy. Ironically, the candy wasn’t available this year because of production issues.
I have wanted to do this series for years. The catalyst to bring this to life came with the opportunity to showcase my work at Pure Beauty Salon at Neiman Marcus Northpark. The catch was I only had about 5 weeks to get a show together.
I knew at once that it was time to bring this idea to life. With Neiman Marcus being a Dallas based business I decided that these first Candy Conversation Hearts needed to be locally inspired. All are Dallas culture based, however, there are 2 that you definitely need to be from Dallas to fully understand how great they are.

After the originals were completed I felt that they needed to be translated into prints. I took the original sayings and turned them into serigraph or silkscreen pop art canvas prints. I am over the moon at how well they have been received. So much so, I plan to do another collection of these next year.
