Two of the most supportive folks I know, Jaime and Steve from @bkstreetart are now in need of a little love from us. Head over to @springbreakartshow to find the art auction set up to fight NY’s destructive cycle of evictions, and to help these two keep doing what they do.

Jewel box miniatures (this one still in progress). There are a few themes that constantly re-appear in my work in different forms and one of them has to do with the sense of wonder and mystery that we get when peering into the tiny and the delicate. This project is filling me with memories from childhood of that hushed sense of stillness that comes when opening doorways and drawers to explore things that you’re not sure if you’re allowed to be exploring.
Starting fresh. It’s finally happening! I’ve started making elements for a stop animation! I’ve been wanting to make an animated film for a long time, since I was 19 in fact, but back then I found I was way too restless. I needed to be out in the world wrestling with the big questions. Slowly over the last couple of years though, a series of life events have started to pull my attention inward, and with that I’ve craved some quiet time making a tiny world of my own. Who knows how far I’ll get, but I’m happy to be at the drawing board (or, the cutting mat, or whatever).
Etching is something I love, but something I’m never able to make in my own studio, so this opportunity to create a mixed media portrait using silk screen and etching together and to consider shadow and light differently than I do in my block prints was a welcome treat. @uwtandempress just released “Girl With Dappled Sunlight” this weekend.
