blog postings!

I am so excited that Aprile over at posted an interview with me on her amazing blog that's all about collage. Check it out and check out all the other great posts that showcase artists, designers and even technique.

While I am at it, I should mention all the folks who had some really nice posts about me on their blogs over the summer: penguin and fish, creature comforts and dear ada. Thanks so much for the kind words and for showing my work!

nesting emily

got some beautiful items in trade from Emily this week. her pottery is gorgeous. the vase i got has the most beautiful shade of blue on the interior. i have always wanted to know how to create ceramics. my one attempt at it in High School art class wasn't so great. i like knowing there are folks out there like Emily who make it look easy!

I haven't posted for a while. Life has been hectic but good. Today is all about inspiration. Recently, I got to see a show in SF of Betsy Walton's art which I had already admired but had never seen in person. It was a nice show at Rare Device and I even got to meet Betsy at the opening. I also recently purchased the wallet design she did for Poketo which is beautiful.

Also, just wanted to alert you to Chris Bettig's print for sale now at Poketo . I picked one up and was glad I did since there are only 50 available!

art opening

Here are some photos from the show at Ghettogloss in LA from Thursday night. They're not the best pics but you get the idea. If you haven't checked out the show yet, please do! There are still lots of pieces available by all of us (Christopher Bettig, Timothy Reed and me!).

art show in Los Angeles!

I am a bit late with this announcement, but if you are in LA this week you must come by Ghettogloss Gallery in Silverlake on Thursday night. I am in a show with my friends Christopher Bettig and Timothy Jason Reed and the opening is that night, Valentines Day! Come celebrate with us and check out The Garden of Delight.
Rumor has it that cupcakes and champagne will be served! In addition, I will be coming down from San Francisco just for the event. It promises to be an excellent evening. Hope to see you there!

I have been experimenting with words in my collage/drawings. I remember someone saying in school how 'loaded' words can be in a piece of art and that comment stuck in my head all these years and kept me from trying to work them in. So silly, right? Anyway, here is a small one I am working on this week for the upcoming show.

back in the studio

I am back working hard in the studio making some new collages for an upcoming show (watch for the announcement soon!). I thought I would share with you one that I have been working on. I used a drawing from my moleskine for this one and incorporated a bit of color.
I am squeezing every bit of time out of my week that I can for creating. My new job allows me to be in my home city (yeah! no more long cross-country work trips!) so I am able to dedicate much more time to my own stuff. It's been a great new change and I really don't think I have even felt the full impact of it yet. I will be busy for the next few weeks making new pieces. Watch for new posts here and on Flickr, as I will document work as I finish it.
