Paper Cuts Gallery Show!

The ladies above are the three pieces I made for next weekend's "Paper Cuts" show at Terminal 22 Gallery in Oakland. These pieces were inspired by the lovely Carmen Miranda - her costumes and charm were just legendary, and I thought that they would be fun to go over-the-top with in paper:)

PAPER CUTS will show fine art and craft pieces that embrace the possibilities and strengths of paper as a primary media. The show's opening reception is this coming Friday, February 5th from 6-10pm at 2443 Telegraph Ave in Oakland. If you are in the Bay Area next weekend, please stop by! Refreshments and free cupcakes (!) will be provided. I hope to see you there!

Also, I just added the "Dinosaur Party" print and "Sleeping Dragon" paper sculpt to the ol' shop, so feel free to take a look if you are interested! Have a lovely week, everybody.

Colorful Creatures

Hey, everybody! Happy 2010!

I apologize for my absence from posting. Things have been quite busy around here since my last post at the end of November, but I should be able to get back on schedule now, at least for a while. Lots of exciting things are coming up, so I will have lots to share!

I have wanted to do a dinosaur piece for a very long time, so I decided there would be no better time to do it than to ring in the New Year. These dinosaurs are having a party, but the velociraptors were not invited. You might think that is mean, but they are bullies and have been giving me nightmares since I first saw Jurassic Park in 1993. Consider this payback.

And these photos are of another paper piece I did over the holidays. Peacocks are so much fun to sculpt!

That's all for now - have a lovely week everybody!
