My paintings and drawings and once in a while a work that I like.

Checking in, or checking out...

I was hoping that this rug would be done by now, especially since I have a clearer sense of the hooking process and am ready to do something a little more innovative.
After using up the wool I had bought off the bolt, I went back to Mood and decided to find something with a different texture hoping that it would be easier to handle. The new fabric has speed up my process a million times and am glad I learned how to choose good wool so soon. And now, since Pierson is starting Nursery School in the fall, I will have a few free hours to scour Manhattan Thrift Stores for fabric to re-use.

I'm in Las Vegas for a week partying hard with my sisters and Pierson. I have to say that I miss the desert. Pierson saw a mountain and called it a giant pancake.

Coney Island Photo Booth

Unfortunately when we went to Coney Island on Friday we were a little underfunded. Between a glowing necklace and three tickets on the Wonder Wheel, we were left with just $3...enough for one photo booth session. (I could have sat through at least twenty frames.) The first picture is my favorite, that would be Pierson's very excited face.

About Me

Brooklyn, NY
I am a artist living in Brooklyn and currently an artist-in-residence with Chashama at the Brooklyn Army Terminal. I have been working in encaustic for the past few years, but am usually trying out a couple of different art making media at once. Peter Everett once called my work kitch, but I don't think it bothers me.
