Hirona and I put up our work today at the gallery. The show is up and ready to go for Sat. My work is in the frames and the last image is a shot I took of Hirona photographing her own work. The first five images are my miniatures I'll be selling in addition to my framed stuff. I'm pretty excited. It looks really nice in the space. The City Paper also a did a lovely article about us for this week's issue. Check it out.

These were taken some time ago. Chaz and I met up with a friend and took a train to visit another friend in D.C. They were taken before I cut my hair and before we got engaged. I just got these developed and seeing them was a nice surprise. I forgot what pictures I took on our trip. They turned out so awesome.

Here are some shots of something new I'm playing with. For my show in Nov I'm creating box miniatures. I recovered a jewelery box with a vintage book cover that I stripped and relined the inside with a vintage handkerchief. I'm still playing around with the objects that will go inside the box. I love it though. I've been carrying around the box in my purse and taking it out once in while to look at it. I plan on creating a whole series of these and hopefully I'll be able to sell them online...another thing I'm thinking about doing. But more on that a different time. Each box will be unique and house various found objects, insects and tiny versions of my photographs. I'm so excited about it.

So, it's been a long time since I've last updated this blog. There are lots of reasons for my absence such as some upcoming exhibits which means more time spent on new work, a new Pinterest account (a big time eater) and also new Law & Order episodes on Instant Netflix. I'm kind of joking on that last one. Kind of. I'm going to try to update more often. I promise.
In a few weeks I'm participating in a new show about love and the heart called The HeArt Attack. It's been getting a lot of press around here in Charleston. It's a show curated by creative couple Justin and Erin with 30+ artists taking part in a show that serves as the two's wedding reception. So fun! I feel so lucky to be a part of their special day and included with so many great artists. Here's a video Justin took of me about my work. Let me just say...seeing yourself on video is so strange. It was a fun experience though and Justin did an awesome job. Check it out...

I haven't posted here in a while, I know. So, I thought I'd do a little update and share some news. Earlier this year I found out that I was one of eight artists chosen to be featured in an exhibition here in Charleston at the City Gallery. Since then I've been working hard making new work, setting up a new website and getting business cards made. I have, along with the other artists, been featured in Charleston Magazine. I can't wait for the opening which is next week, May 26! Come if you can!
Above is a photo of me in my studio from the magazine and below are two new pieces that will be in the show.
