shrews hide under ground


These nasty little critters have venomous saliva, which helps them feed on slugs,spiders, and centipedes, among other creepy things.Shrews use echolocation to find their way around. I am interested in the organisms that are commonly beneath our feet.

My MFA Show at the O.S.U Urban Arts Space



This is probably the second to last time I will be posting about this body of work, it will be exhibited at the Clay Studio in Philadelphia during the month of July, and I will document the project in that small space. Though I worked on several major projects while in graduate school, I felt I needed to sum it all up in one piece, since this is a group show with limited space.

MFA Show Poster


My MFA thesis project is complete and installed at the O.S.U. Urban Arts Space. I have switched gears and have been working on my show poster with the Letterpress at the Non Fiction Studio. It has been very pleasant to be able to work in a different space, in different materials. There are just a couple more layers then I will be finished with this run of 30 prints. I now have two things to focus on, the thesis document and rats.

small favor III


For the small favors show at the clay studio I was given this little box with a 3/4 inch interior to display something in. The piece I wanted to show wouldn't fit so I devised a way to perch this bird form outside of the box.

RAT TA TAT

The latest acquisition to my collection is this freeze dried rat. I just cant wait to start making things with this form. Hmmmmmm... rats in trees?
