surf and shop (soon)

I've finally updated my website. There are a few things I need to add yet (like placing images within my page instead of redirecting to my flickr site), but it matches my current aesthetic much more now. (A note to firefox users - the site doesn't look good in firefox quite yet. View it in safari - it looks much better.)

And while you're on the site, you'll notice a link to shop. That's right, I've finally set up an etsy shop. Nothing for sale yet, but soon. I promise.

lazy sunday

Despite the fact that today was a lazy day (everyone deserves one now and then), I can happily say that I've sent out all 8 applications that were due by March 1st.

A few upcoming events at Towson University:
March 1st 7 PM- Maria Phillips lecture
March 2nd & 3rd - Maria Phillips electroforming workshop
March 6th 7 PM - Metals Guild of Maryland peer review - I will be presenting on navigating the web - blogs, flickr, etc.

I had a computer scare today, so I'm dutifully backing up everything onto an external hard drive. If the thought of losing your resume makes you want to cry, I suggest you do the same.

(The images are a new pillow design I'm thinking about. Probably not the next project, but something in the future.)

happy valentine's day

Nothing says love like a steel pillow...

Oh, and I've got a date with a powder-coater for 8 AM Saturday morning.

snow day = studio day

The weather made me not want to drive to Baltimore, so I canceled my classes. This gave me some much needed studio time since I've got six deadlines coming up before March 1st that I'm trying to make new work for. That's right, in the next 2 weeks, I'll be sending out applications for 3 craft shows, 2 solo shows, and and juried exhibition. Just another day in the life of an artist... (Above: the view from my studio.)


For someone whose artwork is about layering pattern, I'm certainly timid with pattern use in my own home. But that's about to change. I've just ordered this Orla Kiely wallpaper from Anthropologie to hang on the wall behind my bed. It will go under my patterned curtains, behind my striped bedding. And the best part... the wallpaper is easy-peel removal, so Joe can't really object. Get the wallpaper here.

I've finally heard back from a few shows with positive results. You can find a complete list of all my 2007 shows on the right.

The first week of classes kept me away from the studio (and this blog), but the last two days have been about some serious studio time.
Unfortunately, I'm experiencing a love/hate relationship with this pattern. Yesterday, I was excited about it. Today, not so much...
At least the first side is finished, now on to the second.
