Hello internet friends,
If you are in the Los Angeles area, I strongly suggest you come out to Bergamot Station on Saturday, Dec 7.
I'm teaming up with a great organization called ReDiscover. We'll be hosting an art workshop for the kids (of any ages, that means grandma too) from 4 - 6pm. It will be the first time they've had live art in the gallery!
I'll be showing a lot of art that has never been shown in LA before. There are 100 tiles that tell a story in narrative form. They were part of my thesis at Pratt Institute. I will also be showing my collection of headdresses along with photographs and sketches that show the process of building them. They have been donned at TEDtv in Scotland, on the front page of itunes, and on stage all over the US, in the UK, Russia, and Paris.
Musical guest is Elizaveta, also known for her fantastic headdresses (hehe). You can read more about her rockstar music at the bottom or at her webpage.

programming. She loves working with children,
propelling them forward into the endless world of their imaginations and
helping to instill environmental
and social values that will make the world a better place in the future.
Exhibited at EarthWe will be a series of 100 hand cast and painted
ceramic tiles, and in the vein of found object art, a collection of
headpieces and wearable architecture made largely from used materials.
Many of the pieces have been featured in photo shoots and live performances
