Hell Yeah, We do!

Since attending the 5-day artist's dream workshop on Governor's Island, I have been working on long-term planning, which feels like writing down every wish I've had since I was five. In addition to fleshing out my career goals as an artist, I have spent significant time writing about the type of life-partnership I'm looking for. I am trying to visualize what I want as a way of encouraging it to happen. 

The piece pictured here uses some of the fabric my dear friend, Andrew Thornton sent me. It also is a somewhat wry take on the act of getting married. FYI - I am far more interested in the long-term health of a life partnership than I am in the wedding itself. Nevertheless, using the iconic imagery of a wedding ceremony seemed like an easy way to enter into a discussion about marriage.

Brooklyn Bikes

This is the final image of a woman on her bike, casually riding down an idyllic, Brooklyn street. I very deliberately did not give her a helmet. I am always troubled to see people on bikes without them - it seems like an unnecessary health risk. Nonetheless, an attractive woman on a bike in an attention-getting outfit without a helmet is a relatively common scene in hip Brooklyn neighborhoods.

Bergen Street bikes

I love where this image is right now...Partially rendered, it fully suggests the experience of being on a bike. And I know how for bike lovers, the bike becomes an extension of their bodies.

This is the start of my 7th piece for the new hip hang-out spot that will be opening on Bergen Street very soon.

Stay tuned for more details - you are all invited to the grand opening!
