Pop Up Shop

I'm very excited because next Sunday - October 30 - I'll be doing a pop up shop at Pottery Barn (one of my favorite stores!) in The Oaks Mall, Thousand Oaks, CA. I'll be selling lots of my goods, including some new items for the holiday. See you there!

Hot Off the Press!

I finished my 2017 calendar just in time for the LA Printer's Fair last weekend. All of the images are from my hand cut linoleum blocks. This year's images include a a cowboy boot full of flowers, a set of Russian matryoshka and a bear in a turtleneck sweater.

Even though I carefully sketch and plan, things change as I start carving the lino blocks. One of my sketches started out as a dala horse and ended up as a unicorn, featured on the month of January. The bear started out in a scarf and was re-carved in a sweater. The calendar is letterpress printed in a limited edition of 30. It's for sale in my Etsy shop here.

New Collages

I've been in a collaging mood so here are two new Japanese inspired collages.

The first one is made from a vintage photo of a Geisha layered on a page from a vintage Japanese book, combined with handmade paper and an engraving of a moth.

The second one is also layered on a page from a vintage Japanese book. In addition, I used  hand made papers, some old labels, and a tea pot letterpressed from my own illustration.

New On Vida

I did a new collage using vintage documents and some decorative papers. It's done on canvas and is in black, gold, and shades of brown and white. The design is called "Fragments".

I scanned the college and used the art for some new items on Vida. One is a scarf and one is a sleeveless top. The art wasn't really big enough for the top so I also used a vintage Italian document. You can purchase them here.
