Riverside Real Estate

Riverside Real Estate, xerox collage on paper, 11'' x 17'', 2014 

This flood narrative is getting a little out of hand, but I'm pleased with the direction its going. I like how lo-fi the piece turned out. The grainy/choppy/garage band aesthetic has something going for it.

'Van Dyke Brown' and Portland

I just got back from an art trip to Portland! As per usual, I gave myself a limited amount of supplies to create with. I find that working within boundaries teaches me to use materials I normally wouldn't touch. I picked up a handful of crayons, a black marker and a used notebook at a scavenger store. 

Portland feels brown to me. Not a 'blah' brown but an earthy, warm, inviting brown. Freight trains, brick and campfires. 

No, I didn't see Pussy Riot, it was a figurine in my favorite art show...

Side project

I'm taking a printmaking course right now. New love? I think so!
