*just a reminder that tickets are still on sale for the creative block book signing in NYC on April 2nd


I'm so excited to announce that the book Creative Block, by Danielle Krysa aka The Jealous Curator is now out in most book stores.  I've just received my copy and it's awesome.  Not only is it a beautiful, solid, heavy block of a book, but with 50 artists, there's so much to read.  I really enjoy the creative challenges each artist has written.  I have already tried at least one and it's nice to do something artistic that I never would have thought of myself (because I am in the midst of a creative block at the moment.)  

Danielle is hosting book signings across the country.  I'm excited to say that there's going to be one in NYC April 2nd from 6 -9.  Tickets are $25 dollars, which gets you a copy of the book plus refreshments.  I would love to see you there.  

(The other parties are not ticketed, so you can just show up.)  There is one in San Fransisco on March 5th at Little Paper Planes and one on March 22nd in Los Angeles at Skylight Books

And lastly, The Jealous Curator is hosting a giveaway over on her site for a copy of the book.

My artwork is included in the lovely new issue of Working Class Magazine.  
Pick up a copy here.


I recently received these beautifully printed 2014 calendars.  They are quite large (24 x 17 inches) and also not in English, which seems to be okay because they are mostly visual and highlight the artworks each month.  My art is January and August.  All of the other artists have the common theme of using paper as a medium to create their artworks.  They are in limited supply and I will be offering them on my website until December 23rd for $10.00 to cover the cost of shipping within the US only.

I'm excited to be participating in this exhibit opening this weekend.

I am super pleased to announce my participation in this upcoming exhibit.  

Repetition & Ritual: New Sculpture in Fiber
November 7 - January 19, 2014
Opening Reception:  Thursday, November, 7th 7 - 8:30 p.m.
332 N. Robert Street,
Pioneer Building, St. Paul, MN

Curator, Sonya Yong James, selected artists for this group exhibition who have what James describes as a “tremendous capacity for tedious, painstaking, and repetitive activity.” For artists that use fiber, process is often an integral part of their work, which can be very repetitive. Traditional fibers techniques are presented with a modern approach in this exhibition.  James selected artists who use the fiber medium for sculptural rather than textile work, that challenges preconceptions of what fiber art is and defies easy and typical categorization.   

Featured Artists:  Emily Barletta, Karen Ciaramella, Susan Cipcic, Jennifer Crenshaw, Elisa D’Arrigo, Meredith Re’ Grimsley, Amy Gross, Pat Hickman, Sonya Yong James, Clay McLaurin, Ruben Marroquin, Kim Matthews, Karen Searle, Vadis Turner, Katya Usvitsky

So I know it's still a long way away, but it's not a secret anymore.  I'm very excited to announce my participation in this awesome book, Creative Block.  It's the brain baby of Danielle Krysa aka The Jealous Curator and can see her post on the book here along with the complete list of artists included.  It's made up of interviews with 50 artists, with their thoughts on the creative process and those inescapable periods of artists block.  It also includes exercises by each artist for working through it.  It's set to be on shelves in February 2014 and you can pre-order it here on amazon now.
