New Year happenings

I'm excited to announce that my stubborn brain has finally gotten used to the new studio space and I'm on a productive roll, working on some new concepts as well as several "traditional" needle prints, including a commission from Kane realty that will hang in the lobby of the new Dillon building, and will depict the historic warehouse. It's my first "corporate" client, which seems a promising development (so to speak) and will, I hope, lead to more of that sort of work.

My most recent show is hanging at Seaboard Wine & Tasting for just a few more days, so if you haven't had the chance, swing by, taste some good wine and have a look at the small portraits I've made of houses in my own neighborhood of Hertford Village. These pieces are very personal, and they represent some innovations in style that I'm excited about: working in felted wool, and with a bolder "binding" stitch that gives a chunkier look and feel to the pieces. 

Mid-month I will also de-install a show that's been hanging for the past month or so at the Duke Clinics building; for that show I created pieces depicting some of my favorite Durham landmarks, including the Kress Building, Stack Alley, The Durham Bull himself, and others. These works will come back to the studio on January 16th, so be sure to plan a visit if you're a Durham fan. Giclée prints are also available at in the marketplace.

Tres Chicas will add harmonies at a string of Alejandro Escovedo shows in January (D.C. on 1/16, and NYC on 1/18, 19 & 20). Details here: Naturally, we are overwhelmed with excitement!

Looking ahead, I have applied to several juried art shows--fingers crossed; I also have plans to travel to Nashville in '18 to take photographs, with an idea of holding a show in Nashville in the near-ish future.

Thank you for taking the time to read this; I wish each and every one of you a joyful, healthy new year!
