Welcome to the Sideshow


Fellow graduate student, artist, and friend of mine, Chase Stevens of Raven Tooth Gallery, put together a little show called Welcome to the Sideshow.  I happily accepted the invitation to participate in this show as one of thirty artists.

With the MFA Thesis Show installed, defense of my work...defended, and my thesis finished (except for acknowledgements), I could finally work on my sideshow assignment - The Snake Charmer!  Sepia toned photographs of barely clothed, snake wrapped women had been on my brain for a few days when I sat down at my bench to make this brooch.

There was just enough time for a quick snapshot before packaging it up and handing it off to Mr. Stevens to be installed at Guts'n Glory Ink in Rosendale, NY.  And so, a thank you goes out to Chase for the opportunity to be a part of such a great show!

Now for the rest of those acknowledgements...

Image and Meaning, a Symposium

Despite the long car ride to North Carolina from Massachusetts, I am excited to be attending East Carolina University's Metals Symposium this weekend.  The students at ECU have been putting together this event for a few years and I must say, they do a fantastic job!  I especially cannot wait to see the demo of Cappy Counard (whose work I am quite fond of), and say hello to good friends, DJ and Avery Lucas!  See you there!



Back to Work!


Studios at the Star Store are quiet as winter break continues, and after a much needed rest at home in Pennsylvania, I am happy to be back at my bench!

I look forward to developing this site as a blog, but also anticipate a website to follow.  Until then, stop by to see what I'm thinking about as well as what I have been up to in the studio!
