52 Projects #16 Kid Classes

Tiny shape stories. Made a simple one page folding book for upcoming after school kid’s classes at the gallery. Painted paper shapes following the “shapes” show in the gallery for April.

Visioning what the future […]


Pattern as Architecture

Patterns as architecture, as structure.  The warp and the weft woven to create pattern.  Lines of a pattern, blueprints. Clothing, roads, bridges “constructions” of architecture for the body; for life.  The architecture of our lives, the way we structure them, maps to our inner and out movements.  Wind-lines, clotheslines, fence-lines, animal tracks; roads to nowhere […]
