NY with Laura

Yesterday I spent the day in NY with the lovely Laura Graham. It was fabulous. First a quick stop at her apartment, where I saw some old friends:

These little pear ladies were one of the first art trades I ever made.

Then to Laura's studio, where she took some little tiny tin types of me! Was so exciting to watch the magic happen...!

After that, we made our way to VP2 for some crispy soul chicken...if you've never had it, you don't know what you're missing.

Last stop was the MOMA, where we saw some fancy stuff, and got some fancy ideas. I had such a great time and didn't want to leave!

Out with the old, In with the new

I just found out that my work is being featured in the first issue of Uppercase magazine, a new magazine from Uppercase Gallery in Alberta, Canada!!! They put together a book for the "Old School" show I was in and did an amazing job, so I know it will be fabulous...!
Be sure to check out their site at!

Domino Magazine Closes!!!

This has nothing to do with art but I just found out that Domino magazine is done! It's one of two magazines that I subscribe to and I've been a subscriber since the beginning...oh how sad....

The Amazing Hibbard

So there's this guy I know, Hibbard, who may very well be one of the nicest guys on the planet (step off ladies, he's taken)... On VERY last minute notice yesterday, he came to shoot my work at the Center for Emerging Visual Artists before we deinstalled Darla Jackson vs. Anne Canfield.
As sad as I was to see it come down, I was much happier knowing that Hibbard could work his photo magic on my little guys.

Hibbard in action.

Hibbard gets down with baby deer.

How do I know he's such a great photographer? Well aside from the MANY other reasons I know this, my first hand experience is that he photographed our wedding.

See! Fancy, no?

This is how we do.

Stay tuned for the actual Hibbard photos...

How you doin?

So last night I became the proud (and super excited) owner a new Macbook:

Her name is Howie, short for "How you doin?",
a phrase that is grossly overused by me on a daily basis.

She is sure to kick my ass into high gear in many an aspect of my life. More soon!

Whew!'s been a while, hasn't it? Been busy planning for some upcoming shows, prepping for the St. Valentines Day Art and Craft Affair that just past (which was great) and was sick (oh no!) too...
But I'm all better now and have a bunch of great stuff coming up:
1. If you haven't already seen it, Darla Jackson vs. Anne Canfield is still up at CFEVA until February 16th!
2. Two of my pieces were juried into an upcoming show at the Woodmere Art Museum...more details soon!
3. I'll be showing a Flock installation in the Art Shop window at Moore College, Opening reception on Monday March 2nd.
4. I'm making some new work for a miniatures show with The Other Woman Collective at Arcadia Boutique, Opening reception on Thursday, April 9th.
5. I'll be making some newer new work for a solo show at Mew Gallery in June...
I think thats it...for now....

6. FRIDAY IS MY BIRTHDAY!!!!! (Which is the most important of all, of course... ;)

More updates soon on all fronts. I have a bunch of process photos from the Surprise party work that I plan to post soon, so watch out for that...
