It has been a adventurous year for D.Kerper Arts. Growing this website and my career as a freelance artist has been an experience I never thought in a million years I'd face. I have met amazing and interesting people throughout this experience of starting out in art shows. There is so much more going on in my life as a freelance artist that I can not wait to share and explore. I want to make sure I take you all along with me throughout this journey.
So what is going on as of now?
I was asked to be part of something amazing with Sound Stage - Legends Music store. Though my schedule has taken over I will be contributing time over the summer to paint my first mural with the local music shop for their project I'll be announcing soon! I'm super excited to be part of this and I can't wait to get started.
April 30th, Fresno Underground Arts and Tioga-Sequoia Beer Garden are at it again with the 2nd Annual Tim Burton Tribute Show. I am fully excited for this show and I can't wait to show my love for that man! I will be showing my tribute to Stain Boy, Alice in Wonderland, Nightmare before Christmas, Beetlejuice (i will also be dressed up as Lydia Deetz), James and the Giant Peach, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow, and Batman. This is a free event and suitable for all ages. I look forward to seeing you all there!!
May 6th, I am honored to be part of Women's Art and Music Festival located at The Tower Theater. Who are WAMFF?
WAMFF is a collective effort by local women in Fresno, the Rape Counseling Services and the Women’s Studies Program at Fresno State. Our goal is to celebrate the local talent of women in Fresno and to heal through art and music of the destructive epidemic that gender-based violence creates. We want to encourage women not only to develop their art and music but also their professional careers. This is why all of our efforts from this event will be donated to paid internship for Women’s Studies students who want to work in the elimination of gender-based violence. - Women's Art and Music Festival of Fresno
I'm very excited to be part of this awareness and speak out about this situation. It is too silent. The greatest thing about this is to be a part of a multicultural women's show. Please take a moment to check out their website and donate for the cause.
Lastly, I am VERY excited to announce I will be taking D.Kerper Arts to Long Beach Comic Con, Sept 17-18!!!! I will be throwing more information out there soon!!!
Thank you everyone for the local support in my work!! I could not do this without you!
