For now...

My focus lately has been heavily on curating, mostly at Paradigm (www.ParadigmArts.org) and also on our HAHAxParadigm projects (www.HAHAxParadigm.org). New personal work will come one day (actually this fall!), but for now, my energy is mostly focused on those projects, which are passions very close to my heart, to ensure their success.

I am excited to create my own work again in the future, but these projects have been so thrilling, and over the past five years have gradually shifted from part-time jobs at the beginning, to every lovely waking moment of each day over the past two years, starting when I was finally able to make the switch to running the gallery full-time. Still can't believe it's all happening sometimes!

I hope that you will join me for the journey!

Jinxed Philly's 6th Annual heArt Show


I had some much fun making my piece, "Your Heart is Never Safe from Dragons",  for the heArt show this year at Jinxed! It took many hours of embroidery to complete, which is exactly what I needed to occupy my time and mind while I was sick on a couch for a few days, incapable of doing much else. Here is an in progress image of the piece (and empty soup containers) and images of the piece on the wall at Jinxed. So many talented artists participated - it was such an honor to be included! Oh, and thank you to the lovely person that purchased the piece. I hope you enjoy it for many years to come!

Drink Philly First Friday Raises Over $1,000 for Alex's Lemonade Stand

I had a lot of fun working with bottle caps again for Drink Philly's Two Year Anniversary and Fundraiser this past August.  I wanted to make something specific for my donation to the event, so I figured "wine and beer" would be an appropriate topic.
