Hub-Bub Entry Show

Starting January 5th and ending June 28th, I am one of four Artists-in-Residence at Hub-Bub in Spartanburg, SC. At the end of January, Jenny, Anna, Desiree and myself were showcased in The Entry Show, a late-night talk show style event introducing us to the city. This is the first year in the history of Hub-Bub that all four AiRs are women, so we decided to play that up by turning The Entry Show into a fictional beauty pageant called Miss Sparkle City. For this event, I created all the signage, the grand entrance, the sashes and brought the couch to life. We had so much fun and I feel very welcomed by the Spartanburg community!

Limited Edition WONDER Print

On June 13, 2015 (hey, that's my birthday too!), Northern Spark is turning 5. To help raise money to fund five new projects, they are running an INDIEGOGO campaign. In support, I've created a one-of-a-kind commemorative work based off of THINK AND WONDER, WONDER AND THINK from 2012. The piece is available for $500 and a limited edition print of the piece is available for $55. All proceeds go directly to the festival, please consider supporting Northern Spark!

New Jewelry Line

I love to accessorize with silly jewelry, so for fun I thought I'd make my own. Today I launched my new line, Go Bananas! on etsy. Come on over to order your own!

It's Official, I'm Headed to Spartanburg!

Today Hub-Bub announced it's four 2015 Artists-in-Residence. I am happy to say that I am one of them! Back in 2008, I had my first piece of work accepted into a juried show. This just so happened to be at the Showroom Gallery at Hub-Bub. Since then, I've had my eye on this residency program and am so excited to be joining Hub-Bub, Desiree, Anna, Jennifer and the Spartanburg community in January for six-months.

We're going to the Middle East!

Last week, Tom and I were invited to the studios of Twin Cities Public Television to be featured on The WrapAlmanac’s post-show web-exclusive segment. You can click on the photo below to check out the video.

Tom and I are excited to announce that we have been invited by Virginia Commonwealth University’s campus in Doha, Qatar to participate in their biennial international art and design conference, Tasmeem Doha! The 2015 edition will focus on the theme of ‘playfulness’ by using an Arabizi word ‘3ajeeb!’ (ahh-jhee-b) which is a common expression meaning “strange in a strange way, cool in a cool way, and slightly weird in a slightly weird way.” We are so excited to be Artists-in-Residence this November to help the students design and fabricate a mini golf course that they will finish before March. We’ll then get to go back to Doha for the conference in March to see (and play!) the completed course.
When we started this our mini golf blog we didn’t think we’d be featured by anyone, let alone on a popular Minnesota TV program. Now that we’ve been given opportunity to talk about our love of the game with people from around the world in the Middle East we’re on cloud nine!
