So happy to announce that I'll be representing Sheila Arora—one of my LEXICON (http://artistsonthelam.blogspot.com/p/lexicon_10.html) #artists—as an #artistagent! http://artistsonthelam.blogspot.com/2016/07/princess-warrior.html Sheila's #paintings are an explosion of #creativity and #color and I couldn't be more proud to rep them and their creator. Get excited for an interview with Sheila, spotlights on her #work, and more at http://artistsonthelam.blogspot.com! (Pictured here: Sheila's "Circle Tribe," #acryliconcanvas.) #artist #painting #artistrepresentation #painter #acrylic #abstract #abstractart #colorful #colors #chicago
