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.

That is amazing. I love your thoughtfulness on your Manhattan trips. Good job. Could you send me some more information about that school, I am really interested. Tommy hated the grass at first when we went to visit our family. He tried to stay on the cement, but finally he gave in. :D City boys.

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.
