Re-posting some fun moments from this year!
This year I had a rare opportunity to be the costumer for this years high school musical "Legally Blonde". The kids were amazing, hardworking and very receptive to my ideas. I had a ton of fun playing into the old tropes and stereotypes of the characters, which where almost 12 years old. And, figuring out how to make a "Playboy Bunny" costume appropriate for a high school actress. I am sure we got some backlash along the way, but then isn't that what art has always done.

Recently, I was invited by my friend Payton to help her Girl Scout Troop earn their jewelry badge. I am not your typical jewelry artist and decided to teach them the art of stamping leather. These girls where very serious. After discussing what types of jewelry there are and the many different materials it's made of. We got to work. First teaching them the basic skills of working in leather, then letting them go, unrestrained, to create their amazing piece of jewelry. Take a look for yourself what these young ladies accomplished.
The End Results

Summer has officially arrived and my time in the studio has come to a screeching halt. Because of this, I was able to take a road trip to Niagara Falls Canada. The falls are just incredibly amazing, I just could not take my eyes off them. They where so dazzling, inspiring, beautiful......and wet. There are just not enough adjectives to describe these wondrous icons.

Here I am at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, waiting to see the Frida exhibit.
I just saw the most amazing Frida Kahlo show at the Brooklyn Museum of Art, titled Appearances Can Be Deceiving. Such an overwhelming and well curated exhibit of her belongings that have been locked away since her death in 1954. This show includes some of her paintings, her beautiful clothing, her corsets of painted plaster, her prosthetics, and even her medicines that she used to manage a lifetime of pain. I left the exhibit renewed, inspired and with even a greater admiration for her and her work.
