Last Chance to see Tag 1 Installation

I’m am deinstalling Tag 1 on August 19th at A Condos

If you haven’t seen it yet, you should. I’m really proud of the result and plan to explore more work of this ilk.

Please go see it in person. The fabric plays a trick on the eye.

Walk into the lobby anytime at 389 Washington Avenue, Jersey CityYou can’t miss it covering the entire wall.

Wonder Women… realized

I can’t believe its done. All I need to do is find a wall big enough to hang it and photograph it.

Wonder Women is a riot of pony beads, buttons, bottle caps, crystals, mirrors, flowers, embroidery, and bling measuring a 10’x8’.

Over the course of four weekends, Garden Level hosted four Sewing Circles. More than twenty people headed the call. Each influencing the work in their own way.

A nine-year-old girl walked in off the street with her mom and learned to sew her very first button. Even, two men joined the fun and documented their work.

Wonder Woman Selfie WEB
