Oh look at this nice promo video! This was kindly filmed by Joe Keil. I’m super awkward but hey-ho, what else is new.
For those interested, another collective artist (Heather) and I host GreenZines every last Friday of the month at my studio in the Greenwood Art Collective. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come! You can work on our collective zine (GreenZines), you can work on your own zine, or really, you can work on whatever art project you’d like! We start at 7 and go till whenever. Generally, we print the zine on a later date but have it ready by the next artwalk for pick up, which is the 2nd Friday of the month. Next GreenZine meet up is Sept. 29th. We’re building around a spooky/history of the building theme. ;)
Summer is nearing its chaotic end! Some exciting changes are in store for fall :D But until them, lets hang out in the lingering light!
Sorry for the most unreadable flyer but I had gone too far to change it. Several new events this month and the, always exciting, artwalk at the collective!
Check out some new work below!
The Red Stars are once-a-year events! The Handmade Gift Show is also a rarer event but only open to wholesale buyers. If you have a shop and are interested in my work, definitely stop by and check out the Urban Craft Uprising Handmade Gift Show.
Lots of new work and stationery!!
Wowzers what a fun June! VERY excited for the Fremont Solstice Festival, it has been my favorite Seattle event for years and this will be the first time I’m in it as a vendor. Also very excited for the We are Doll Parts Pop up on the 11th. It is an absolutely beautiful shop- definitely stop by and say hello if you’re able.
I will be hosting Cirque Du Kink at my studio for the June 9th Artwalk at the Greenwood Art Collective.
I collect many vintage/antique pieces, but a favorite is- COLORED GLASS. I wanted to experiment drawing some of my collection and turning them into riso prints. I turned the drawings into a cocktail cards set of 5 different designs and an enveloped package, as well as three 8.5’ x 11” prints. Below are some close ups of the color play.
May is here and I’m super excited to be doing so many events!
I will be doing several new markets and art fairs this summer. The U-District street fair, Fremont Solstice, Alki Arts Fair, Anacortes Arts Fair.
Fremont Sunday Market
Capitol Hill Artwalk in Chophouse Row- Butterhouse
A Sticky Melty Hot Start to Summer show at Siderail Collective
U District Street Fair
New things- Very happy with how these new stickers came out. Several new riso prints and cards, and I have a few other products in the works! Market season is in full swing- Just about every weekend I will be out and about. Fremont Sunday market is a main stay, Making Local is coming up this weekend in Mountlake Terrace and Crafty Wonderland in PDX the following weekend!
I also just realized, this month marks 10 YEARS having this website!! Wowzers
Thank you to all those who came out to my studio opening! It was such a fun evening! My studio will be open every 2nd friday of the month 6-10pm, along with the rest of the collective. Each month I will host a guest artist, there will always be new creations to see. Below are some photos of the studio and event. It was also Sequoia's 2nd birthday, she was pooped by the end of the night.
New work available on Etsy and my shopify! If you're in Seattle, coming to an open studio will have the lowest prices and more variety of my work. :)
I am very excited to share this project I was honored to be part of! This field guide educates about the bioregion through collections of illustrations and writings. It is published through Mountaineer Books and will be available for sale at this event and bookstores later this year! Read all about the book HERE
I will be speaking at the town hall event- hope to see you there! :)
I joined the Greenwood Art Collective at the tail end of 2020. With the waves of the Pandemic, the collective was a bit off and on but overall the collective HAS MADE IT THROUGH! Which unfortunately can't be said of a lot of other art spaces in Seattle. The past few artwalks have been picking up and we expect to have full upstairs/downstairs shows this year! If you've been to the collective you probably have seen me in a colorful corner in Moonrise but I now have my own studio upstairs which will be open for artwalks- I will have a "grand opening" in March.
I painted this outdoor sign to spruce up the front of the building. The black/fenced building hasn't been the most inviting so hopefully it will help draw people in. Hope to see you soon!
