305 to My City (AKA I’M MOVING!!)

Post image for 305 to My City (AKA I’M MOVING!!)

+ A painting of mine of Providence from 2012 +

I’ve been pretty under wraps about this for like 8 months now, but I’m moving! I’m heading back to Rhode Island at the end of this month and I couldn’t be more excited. It may not seem like a huge deal since I’ve been moving there and back every year for the past 4 years, but this time, I’m packing up my life into my car and heading up there indefinitely.

I wasn’t really sure how I was going to make it happen so I haven’t made any official mention of it until now. But basically, after graduation I flew down to Miami, found a job within 5 days, and have been putting in my time to make this possible. I’ve sold a bunch of my unloved belongings on eBay and Poshmark and started selling my artwork as prints. Originally, the plan was to move to Boston and I’m so glad I changed my mind because it would never have been financially possible. I’m still even taking a huge jump here because I’m definitely not THAT financially stable but it’ll work itself out. Anyway, here’s to the next chapter of my life! I’ll try my best to squeeze in some last Miami posts but at this point I’m really trying to spend time with family and friends before I put over a thousand miles between us.

Miami, I love you and you’ll always be home. I’ll be back!

I am so excited for you! I also think it’s wonderful you’re beginning to sell your work because you’re so talented! You already know I’m such a major fan ;) Speaking of which, that painting you shared is beautiful! I’ve seen a lot of your fashion portraits but never anything like this and I’m impressed!
