I'm really excited to share that I will be a vendor at the Show of Hands Spring show! Show of Hands is a community of small Chicago based creators. I've heard wonderful things about these shows and am delighted to be a part of it this year. Check out the full line-up of vendors HERE.
I was very happy to get to contribute to this beautiful poster project. Check out ALL THE FREE RESTORATIVE POSTERS and read more about he project!
"All of us cause harm and we all experience harm at some point in our lives. In our punitive culture, the solutions offered often rely on the criminal legal system to evaluate and adjudicate harms. Yet many harms are not crimes and many crimes are not necessarily harmful. But we know that harm demands a response.
How might we more readily account for and respond to harms in our communities? Perhaps we can begin by asking some restorative questions. Asking restorative questions offers a path that can encourage new ways of addressing harms.
Inspired by a set of restorative questions, a group of (mostly Chicago-based) artists created beautiful posters. The posters are now available for free downloading on this site. The goal of this project, spearheaded by Project NIA, is to widely disseminate the art so that more people might ask new and different questions when harms are done in their communities."
Hello Grace community! I'm happy to share that I now have prints available of my "Light of Grace" piece. I have been in touch in the Boggs Center around this and will be donating $10 from each print directly back to them. I will only be printing 100 copies of this piece so get one if you want one!!
I’m so excited to share that I will be working in WI with the Wormfarm Institute as Residency Manager for six months this growing season!!! I’m saddened to be leaving home in Chicago for a while but The Wormfarm Institute has a mission I resonate with deeply and I am thrilled to spend more time working with them, practicing rural food growing, and concentrating on my own artistic development.
Check out my Interview/ Feature with Enfants Terribles Magazine!
Enfants Terribles Magazine is about playing more and worrying less.
Founded in Copenhagen (Denmark) in November 2013 Enfants Terribles Magazine has set out sails for an exiting journey into the land of online publishing.
Enfants Terribles Magazine is the creative playground for handpicked creative souls from all over the world. We are building a playful and inspiring universe where you can always find an excuse to play. Grown ups must play too in order to keep that open heart and mind and Enfants Terribles Magazine is the result of a playdate that never ended. Søs Uldall-Ekman and Céline Hallas decided to go ahead with building their dream of an online universe, where they could combine their efforts, into making a platform for likeminded creatives from all over the world.
Being from backgrounds outside the classic publishing and fashion world, they chose the name Enfants Terribles, because they knew they would have to break a lot of unwritten rules in order to get to where they wanted.
Every issue has a new story to tell. All contributors work with a single theme, that is explored with the eyes of a child, seeing somethingnew for the very first time.
I had an awesome opportunity early this year to contribute to a radical coloring book organized by For the People Artist Collective and Chicago Childcare Collective called "Color Me Rising"! The pages are full of memorable actions that took place in Chicago during 2015 because Chicago organizing is beautiful.
I worked on a piece for Damo Day. Damo (Dominique) was a really wonderful young man whom many of us knew and was killed by a police taser earlier in 2014. The day was organized in his memory and to say that we will not accept the killing of our friends and families any longer. #NoTasers!
Hey friends! Welcome to my new website. I'll be posting here with art updates and upcoming events. Thanks for following!
