Uppercase Work/ Life

I am very very very excited to say that the Uppercase Magazine's Work/ Life book is officially released!

So I can finally share the piece that I created for it. My assignment from Janine (editor) was....

"Envision your own folklore or fairy tale and make a self portrait in which elements of you

(ie your hair, limbs, clothes and/or body) depict the story."

It was almost TOO perfect, and I wanted to make something that was me, but also something new.

I'm very happy with how everything turned out. And I will post more images of the book when I receive it in the mail!

I am headed to Iceland tomorrow with 2 other artists who were also included in the book, Vicky Healy and Jenny Nieh!

You can find out more about the book here and buy it here!

Paris & Reykjavik

As usual it is has been too long since my last post.

As usual I will try to be better...

I have had a busy few months. I traveled to Paris in mid July and fell in love, it is a beautiful city and I of course spent some time looking at art in various forms. One discovery I made was the artist Antoine Guilloppé who is an illustrator of childrens books (and other things) and his work is incredible. I bought a copy of Pleine Lune and I have no words.

I also was excited to see such a book being printed for a mass audience rather than a special edition artist book, each page is laser cut.

While I was in Paris I also was looking for inspiration for an art nouveau style commission I was working on. The city itself was definitely an influence.

At the end of the week I am traveling to Reykjavik, Iceland and I am hoping for inspiration. Any tips would be amazing!!
