I’m very excited to put on a workshop about my favorite medium, the linocut, at The Collaborative in Warren next month. Teaching drawing, painting, and design is great fun, but I’d really like to see more people interested in relief printing, which can be easily accessible and done at home any time!
While working small, I’m trying to carve quickly and loose — more like a sketch.
I currently have prints and paintings available at Island Boy on Water Street in Warren, RI. If you haven’t been there, go check it out!
It’s been a very busy weekend : I was at Island Boy Friday night for the opening, which was a lot of fun to meet new people and catch up with friends and family in such a cool space. All day Saturday I was at the Wickenden Makers & Merchants sale in Providence, which started out with brutal winds that took a few art piece casualties, but ended up being my most lucrative and encouraging market yet. On Sunday I taught two painting classes and fell asleep on the couch! Now it’s Monday morning and I’m ready to make more, print more, and organize future events.
My chaparral series of SoCal plants and power lines is complete. The image contains eleven lino blocks arranged together into a 16x20” composition.
Pura Vida is my upcoming art pop-up at Island Boy in Warren, Rhode Island. The work will feature paintings and relief prints illustrating tropical and aquatic life, from plants of the jungle to wildlife and explorers of the sea. The opening reception is 6-10pm on Friday, April 26th. We’ll have an offering of wine, beer from Narragansett, and bites contributed by Hometown Poké.
