Little House on the Tentacles

This is a piece commissioned by the Foothills Art Center for their 40th Anniversary. My friend Dave Seiler made the houses (a model of the center) out of porcelain, and curator Michael Chavez invited 40 artists to do what they like. The show opens tonight!

Been a lot goin' on...

Original Post from Oct. 15, 2006 (previously hosted on website)

Haven’t kept up with the blog as much as I would like to, but things have been so busy! Many new developments, which I will detail in as few words as possible:
•Have been chosen to exhibit at Art Miami in January with + Gallery
•Pimpalicious (the stuffed animal coat) was seen online by someone from the DIY network and will be appearing in a 1 minute segment on the show “Common Threads”. Hopefully I will have enough of a heads-up to inform people!
•Currently have a show up with friends (Dave Seiler, Brandon Borchert, Katie Taft & Steve Gordon) in Capsule entitled “Random Formulas”. The most exciting thing is that a critic from Art In America came through and saw the show! I’m keeping my fingers crossed...
•Spent last weekend parked in front of the Denver Art Museum for the grand opening of the Hamilton Wing, in an idea that I have wanted to bring to fruition for years: a gallery in a truck. Named “BOOM”, it displayed the work of 13 fantastic local artists, and we’re guessing between 3500 - 5000 people came through the show. Fun! (Coast to coast next, baby!) go to: for more!
•Moved the studio into a fantastic new space; unfortunately, just found out it is for sale. Keeping my fingers crossed on that one, too.

Making a Mold

Time to make the molds! This one will have around 20 different river rocks. I’m building a two part mold, and it’s been taking a little while, but in the end I’ll be able to make 20 fake rocks at a time out of plastic, and hey -- who doesn’t want to do that?

Workin' on my Munny

Here’s a sneak peak at the start of my Munny for the Munny show at Capsule, sponsored by the fine folks at Plastic Chapel. It opens June 9, and it’s going to be huge! Stay tuned for more details....

And the winner is....

This was Capsule’s winning entry in the ADCD Paper Couture Fashion Show. My fantastic teammates were Katie Taft, Dave Seiler, and Brandon Borchert, who contributed the groovy hummingbird tattoo on our lovely muse Amie Bergeson’s back. An entire dress, made of paper -- it took us over 70 hours and $100 worth of adhesives! Our sponsor was Curious Papers, who make some really cool vellums and metallics. We had to pitch a diva fit to get the paper we wanted, but man was it worth it!
