Storm Clouds Over Cane Bay

The storm clouds, heavy with the weight of untold narratives, loomed ominously overhead, as if whispering secrets of far-off lands and ancient legends lost to time. Their tumultuous presence infused the atmosphere with an electric anticipation, evoking a sense of mystery and wonder that stirred the imagination and beckoned the soul to embark on a journey through the realms of imagination and memory.

Pitchy Patchy

Drawing upon the vibrant tapestry of St. Croix’s Old Time Christmas Festival and its rich tradition of masquerade, Pitchy Pathcy is a soft fiber sculpture crafted from upcycled Patagonia shorts shredded then wrapped in a melange of textures and hues.

Infused with the spirit of the Pitchy Patchy mas character, known for its tattered, multicolored attire, this piece intertwines 4-ply worsted wool, soft rainbow wool, and whimsical eyelash yarn. Adorned with a medley of wooden and metal beads, cowrie shells, and hair jewelry, it pays homage to the enigmatic enforcers who animate the carnival’s bustling energy.

Assembled with reverence, this soft sculpture bridges the gap between tradition and innovation, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in the magic of masquerade.

Do You See It?

The Great Resignation

McCarty is living OUR best life in St. Croix. He left behind Wall Street and Savile Row Suits for the Caribbean Sea and cargo shorts.

He gifted me his collection of vintage silk ties for art supplies. And has not looked back on his old life at his Bloomberg terminal.

The Great Resignation is in honor of all the people who have chosen to honor themselves over their toxic work environments and take a leap of faith and Quit.
