Paper Panache, Holiday 2014

xmascard_deerThis Thanksgiving I am especially grateful for the amazing artistic opportunities that have come my way this past year.  From setting up my very own pop-up shop to erecting a fence full of love (and locks), to running Cleveland’s smallest gallery to producing a solo exhibition in vacant home, to yarn bombing a pier to starting a new job at an architecture firm, its been a year of frighteningly successful firsts. THANK YOU to everyone who played a role large or small!

Grants from ‘The Kresge Foundation’ and ‘Cuyahoga Arts and Culture’ funded my multiple public arts initiatives over the past year, affording me the opportunity to hone skills while creating. Six years ago I fell in love with screen printing at AIR (in Pittsburgh) and this summer I returned to the hobby with a fervor, becoming one of the most prolific (and admittedly imperfect) printers at Zygote Press, in Asia Town.

2013 was the year of lasercutting and 2014 was the year of screen printing (although of course I also spent countless hours making awesome follies at Thinkbox).

Many thanks for your time and support of my small business ventures. Please remember that all products are lovingly hand crafted and screen printing is one of the most inconsistent processes. I only sell what I am proud to share with others. Keep in mind there will be slight variances in your set of cards / tags. 

Happy holidays to all!
