As Winter drags on, this group art exhibition celebrating the sacred feminine is just in time to heat things up!
“Celebrating the primal orgasmic energy of creation, Olly Olly is pleased to present The Alchemy of the Sex Witch and Other Tales of Love. As we continue to heed the call and power of playfulness let us immerse ourselves in an extravagant cuddle coven dripping with crystals and glitter and infused with sacred obscenity, sacral chakra energy, sensual revelry, spell casting, and the radical, alchemical powers of bliss, joy, pleasure, laughter, empathy, and community.”
I’m excited that my piece, “Nesting Instincts” was accepted into Between the Seams, a showcase of textile art in Chicago, IL. You can check out the piece and other works juried by Nnenna Okore from Jan 19 through Feb 10. The show posits: Continue reading
Becky Little shares her take BLUSH, my duo show with Rose Jaffe, in the Washington City Paper. She dubs it a “Piquant Exhibit On the Human Body.” Check out the article.
I’m excited to debut new installation work at the MFA in studio art 2nd- and 3rd-year exhibition. I had a lot of fun with this experimental piece, engaging with the shape of the underside of a stairwell and paint splatters on the basement floor. The process for this work involved collecting and relating objects to spaces, which is a new way of working for me, and was produced in the last few weeks during the summer residency portion of the program.

This month, I’m excited to debut work in a duo exhibition with Rose Jaffe at the Mansion at Strathmore. The work I’m including spans nearly two years. It traces an evolution from representational painting towards abstraction and brand new sculptural work. While varied in form, the show is organized around feminist interests and organic lines that are prominent in my work as well as Rose’s.
Traditionally, the female nude in art is represented as an object of beauty. My work in BLUSH explores the body from a feminist perspective – probing internal experiences of sensation and desire and external experiences of movement and balance. Continue reading
I’m so excited to showcase BRAND NEW work alongside fellow DC artist, Rose Jaffe, in a duo show at the Mansion at Strathmore. The show opens Sunday, June 11! Continue reading
I’m pleased to showcase a piece in Emulsion 2017, East City Art’s regional juried show. To quote the Pinkline Project: “An emulsion blends two seemingly incompatible substances to produce a third yet distinct substance. Oil + Egg Yolk = Mayonnaise | Air + Sugar = Meringue | Baltimore + Washington = Art Competition. Continue reading
When I began my master’s program at MICA this past summer, I had a newfound freedom to explore. I was on sabbatical from my job, had ample studio space, and the mandate to take artistic risks. It was awesome! And more than a little terrifying. Continue reading
This summer, I began something new. I’m attending the nearby Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland. I enrolled in the Masters of Fine Art in Studio Art (MFAST ), a small, interdisciplinary MFA program. “Interdisciplinary” means I work alongside all types of visual artists – from sculptors to performance artists. This was important to me, because I’m exploring new mediums and no longer consider myself strictly a 2-d artist. The program is low-residency. It includes part-time study during the regular Fall and Spring semesters, and in the Summer, an intensive 6-week on-campus session (the “residency” part). I’ve just completed my first summer session, and I’ll go back to Baltimore the next three summers. Continue reading
I’m looking forward to participating in two group shows in the DC area this summer. Continue reading
