FINALLY

The 24 hours in each day are rarely enough to allow sufficient attention/energy for all aspects of one’s life, so here I am, FINALLY, with some new work. That being said, I’ve actually spent the last 10 months developing a process for creating this work. I’ve inhaled a lot of fumes. I’ve gotten paste and wax all over various surfaces – sometimes artwork, sometimes furniture, sometimes myself. And I’ve ruined a lot of really nice collages. But thanks to talking to Bruce Myren and my dear boyfriend, I found the right adhesive and the right protective coating that allow me to make these collages the way I want to, and protect them without obscuring the colors of the prints used to make the collages. FINALLY!

I’m hoping to develop these into a large series, and therefore have yet to have titles for the works or the series as a whole. But here’s hoping that more works will appear in this space soon. And I’d love to hear your thoughts, either in the comments or by email!

Another Day at the . . . Studio

So sorry for the long (very long) break between posts! But good news: I have started a new photo project! The tentative title for the series is “Workplace,” and will be portraits of my current and former coworkers’ shoes. There’s much work to be done yet, but I’m so pleased with how the shoots have been going so far that I had to share. So here are two of my current favorites as a teaser:

black and teal hightop shoe

black and pink cheetah print high heel

Once the series is complete, I’ll post it on my website and post about it here as well. Can’t wait to show you the finished series!
