Collaboration // Open Studio // Workshop

Alright… catching up on what I’ve wanted to post since the beginning of the month.  There’s been a lot going on — my residency at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, as well as preparing for my move to Los Angeles.

Collaboration with Courtney Hartman and Renee Batres:
Courtney and I collaborated for her performance inside of my installation, “Before You Were Born.”  We teamed up with Renee for the June 2nd performance.  Renee is a makeup and body painting artist.  She painted Courtney to look like the installation, yet a new creation.   Here are some photos from June 2nd:

Collaboration is so much fun.  Thanks to my residency at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, I have been fortunate to collaborate with other talented artists and art professionals.  It’s been a great experience working with the museum staff, as well as with Renee, Courtney, Anna, Daniel, and Octavio.  <3


Open Studio / Moving Sale on June 10th

michaelOk, so I have been planning to move to LA for a while now, and things have come together.  On June 10th, I had an open studio sale.  Thank you to everyone who came by.  I felt so much support at this event, as well as at my residency at SJMQT.  I have so much love for my community here in the Bay Area, and I am most sad to leave that community when I move.
Courtney took the above photos at the Open Studio Sale.  If you took any and want to share, please email me them <3

I wish I took more photos, but I managed to get this cool one of Michael with his new prints.







Screenprinting Workshop San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles
The last series of photos I am sharing are from my workshop at SJMQT yesterday.  We had a walk through of my work currently on display, as well as a screen printing workshop.  Everybody was able to make their own prints, from a screen I designed last week.  The flowers in this screen will be used for my next series of paintings.

Last thing! My work was featured on Feminist Fiber Art — thank you!
