Community Profile on Golden Rule's blog

I forgot to mention this earlier, but Andrea Frampton did a wonderful interview with me about my workspace and art practice as a part of Golden Rule's Community Profile series. Beautiful photographs and beautifully written. See the full interview here.

Experimental Papermaking

Recently I have decided to try my hand at making paper. I had a bunch of junk mail piling up and thought it would be interesting to make it into something new. I'm excited to see how this turns out over time. I think that by periodically soaking and blending together the junk mail it will serve as a way of averaging everything together and creating a sort of color index of whatever I happen to receive.

Things are getting off to a messy start. The paper is currently suspended over my bathtub, in its second day of drying. As you can see in the photo it is pretty gray (mainly due to my Oregon voter's information booklet).

I just ran across an image of one of my old installations from Summer 2008 in a First Thursday write-up on Shift Magazine's website. See it here.

Idea Generation

New Project: Stitched Mountain Ranges

I have recently been doing some experimentation with creating three-dimensional surfaces with fabric and thread, similar to relief maps.

Monotype Print Cards

Here are some blank cards I printed when I was doing a bunch of color-related experiments. They all measure 5.5" x 4.25" when closed.
