new, updated, renovated studio!

studio 4337 / south wall

After months of unpacking, rearranging, reframing, installing, etc, my studio is finally complete! I'm so excited and have uploaded a bunch of pics onto my flickr page for you to see. There are still some detail-y things I'd like to do, but all in all I'm stoked. It's a dream come true for me. I have to pinch myself when I'm working! I can't believe I have a space that's mine, that I helped to design, that's right outside the house so close to home AND temperature controlled! CRAZY! Big thanks to Erich for the great spongey flooring and Julie for the great shelf brackets from Ikea. My feet and my walls are very happy!

re-fragmented 01 & 02 / march 2009

Here's a little sneak peek at some pieces I have recently been reworking. I started each of these pieces about 5 years ago. Since then, they have sat in my studio. In the process of moving stuff back into my studio, I decided to rework them. So far, I'm having fun with them and am really enjoying the process. My plan is to keep breaking them down into smaller rectangles & squares. Once that feels complete, I'll go back into them with drawings, photos, and other collaged bits. I love puzzles pieces like these, figuring them out as you go along. For more pics of these, visit my flickr page.
