Paper Doll Dreams

Remember all those deadlines I told you about before my surgery? Here's two of the pieces I finished up and sent off to two exhibitions:

Above is "Paper Doll Dream Girls No. 2," which is currently on view in Miami, FL. I was so flattered to have been emailed and asked to be a part of a super cool show called DIY:MIA. I also send along some screenprinted shirts and other goodies, since the show's theme was DIY culture, street art, and artist-made clothing.

"Paper Doll Dream Girls No. 3" traveled all the way to Jerusalem, Israel, where it is now currently on view at the ReUSE Project Exhibition, hosted by the INSPIRE Collective. Another awesomely themed show, the ReUSE Project is about using found materials, things from the trash, and anything discarded to make something new and creative. Both of these pieces are painted and silkscreened collages made with vintage atlas pages and butcher paper.

I'm still pretty under the weather, but every day gets better. I don't have much energy yet, so I have been itching to get back into the studio and do some printing... Soon, I hope!!
