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!

Vicky Healy

In honor of valentines day, and also because I have been annoyingly busy with 9-5 work, I wanted to post about Vicky Healy.

Her work is completely surreal and whimsical but also has a fun playfulness that I feel is so rare in art today.

It is sort of like an escape to another world.

Here are a few of my favorites, and be sure to take a look at her website:
