Blushington Pop Up Mural by Deanna First at Parker New York by Deanna First

So excited I was able to see my work large-scale on the Blushington X Parker New York Hotel Pop-Up. Guests can pop in to pick up all TSA approved sized skincare and makeup brands from the best of the best.

Brands like Supergoop, BeautyRX, Lord Jones, Illuminate by Ashley Tisdale, Jouer, Tata Harper, ToGoSpa, and Ouai are just a few. They can also visit Blushington’s Makeup & Beauty Lounge on the underground level of the Parker New York for a variety of services including makeup applications, skincare services, dry styling, and more.

Blushington hopes to expand this concept so you may just be seeing my art pop up a few more places around the city!

I had the opportunity to live sketch guests at The Pierre in NYC which overlooks the iconic Central Park for 3 hours on September 2, 2017 for client's Raji & Nayan's Wedding! I met Raji at a live sketch event a Fashion Week with Papyrus and Christie's honoring Andy Warhol in the past and was thrilled when she contacted me for artwork on her special day!

The event was planned by the talented Sonal and Ginny of  Sonal J. Shah Events  which specializes in Indian weddings in New York, Miami and worldwide.

I also teamed up with Lacee Swan, another local artist where we sketched 5X7 mini illustrations throughout the night. I used copic markers mixed with crystals and gold paint to capture the elegant beauty of the gowns  and traditional sari. We started off in the Cotillion during cocktail hour before guests made their way to dinner and dancing later on in the night. My lovely intern from Kent State University, Olivia Pickard attended the event with me capture moments of this special day and further assisting me throughout the night!
