When I first started thinking about moving to Oregon from Colorado the phrase "When Pigs Fly" came to mind because it seemed pretty impossible at the time. Then when I began entertaining the thought of moving to Oregon and making my living as an artist the phrase got louder in my mind. In 2008 I moved to Oregon and it wasn't too long after that my artwork began selling on a small scale. Next thing I knew I was being represented by Dragon Fire Gallery, then Valley Art and Love Art! (until Love Art closed). Now my work is going to be in Portland, in the Pearl District at http://www.jpepinartgallery.com. Apparently pigs fly.
