Come check out my work at the ArtWork6 show, with selections from staff and faculty of the Art Institute of Chicago and SAIC. I’m excited to be showing new work!
Excited to be weaving in my studio! The loom is stretched across an old bed frame, assembled Navajo-style with rope for tension. I’m weaving several pieces for costumes to be used in a video installation. And yes, this means more mummies are on their way..
I like to try to continue making illustrations on the side, no matter what I am working on. I find it keeps the creative juices flowing and reminds me how much I love color and line and is always a good exercise in composition.
It’s been great to see my photographs, illustrations and collected images together on the wall in the studio. I’ve realized when I get back I need a studio space to gather my influences and old/current work together into one place. I can really begin to draw connections and understand some things that I’m talking about in my work. Also, I’ve realized there is so much to create! If someone dropped a grant in my hands today I would free myself to create everyday.
Excited to have 2 weeks here at the Roger Brown house and studio in Michigan; I was awarded the residency through the Art Institute of Chicago. So awesome to have Kate Bieschke come and make work with me as well! We downed a lot of beers and visited the lake every day at sunset. It’s been great to have an entire studio space to occupy and finally see a lot of my work up on the wall together. My goal here is to scan and edit negative from almost 3 years of photographs that I have not gotten to.
