and on a side note:

I just spent a week fostering Regulus the Tibetan Mastiff.  He is a 4 year old, 180 pound sweetie, who loves belly rubs, cuddling, and needs a forever home, preferably not in the city.  He is up for adoption through Social Tees Animal Rescue.



The Vital Flux
Curated by Angela McQuillan
Gallery 107
107 Main street
North Adams, MA 01247
July 31 – August 24, 2014
Opening Reception: Thursday July 31, 2014 6-10pm

In August 2013 at Little Berlin Gallery in Philadelphia, six artists working in diverse mediums presented work in an exhibition entitled Growth and Decay. One year later, these artists come together again in another biomorphic art exhibition entitled The Vital Flux. The concept behind this exhibition is the importance of change. Living organisms are constantly evolving and adapting to new circumstances. This artwork is a continuation of where they left off, and an indication of the many different directions they are heading. Each artist has their own unique visual language and creative interpretation of the living world, providing a unique viewing experience that combines elements of biology with a delicate mix of surrealism and abstraction.

Participating Artists: Emily Barletta, Alana Bograd, Jackie Brown, Marguerita Hagan, Samantha Jones, and Angela McQuillan

You can view some of the new art I made for this exhibit on my website here.

I'm so happy to have my work included in Flow Magazine.  I just received my copy and it is one of the most visually fun magazines I have ever seen.  It is DIY oriented, and even though I can't read it, I still really enjoyed flipping through the pages, and I'm looking forward to trying out some of the activities, (the materials are included!)


I would like to announce my participation in this exhibition and invite you to the opening reception.

*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.

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.
