where've you been?

My world has been a bit hectic lately.  One of the projects I did in the last two weeks was a piece for womanMADE Gallery's call for entries for their upcoming show, The Emotional Body.  I used a drawing I did a couple of years ago to do an image transfer and these are some photographs from the process.  I'll find out on March 4th if it makes it!


weekend projects...

This weekend I've been working on sketches for Harvey, giving my vintage boxes a new life and enjoying 30 degree weather (like spring!).  Despite the fact that it's warmed up, I've still been working on a lot of projects on my living room floor since my studio has no heat.  This tends to result in an art project explosion.  Funny how it happens in a matter of seconds, but takes so long to clean up... which is what I am about to do next since I have dinner guests tonight!  On the menu: moroccan-spiced chicken, minted carrots, apricot pistachio couscous... and ice cream of course.

the mess... and the results.
