Hello friends! Long time no see!

Lots of things are the works and there projects galore. Including a brief update on my portfolio site and of course, my daily 365 Florals Project is still in effect: 80+ days into the year and still going strong.

And also, I made this new large drawing entitled Forever. Made in January of 2014. Pencil on Lenox Paper. 30" by 40"

Forever is currently on display in MCAD’s Double Shifts show featuring staff members’ artwork. Opening Reception is Friday, April 11, 6:00–8:00 p.m. See you there!

In case you haven’t heard by now, Andres Guzman and I are collaborating with Paper Darts Pop Up in putting together an exhibition of new works that we’re calling Candy Arena.

For us, it’s been both an exciting yet daunting journey where we’ve been able to explore personal interests in both concept and aesthetic, all of which gets at the core of who we are as working creatives. We’ve promised ourselves to use this time for making wisely, to push and challenge ourselves as makers, to explore ideas we’ve been meaning to for years, and most of all, to have fun throughout the entire process.

Please join us on Wednesday July 10th from 6:30 to 9:00 PM at 3506 Nicollet Avenue in South Minneapolis. (Paper Darts Pop Up at SooVAC’s SooLOCAL gallery space) 

We’re really excited and honored to share our new work with you and we hope to see you at the opening. If you can’t make it opening night, the exhibition will run from July 8th through July 20th

We would like to thank the Paper Darts Team, SooVAC, Barbette and Feng Meng Vue (sloslylove) for making this all possible. You all are legends. 

We would also like to thank our amazing friends, significant others (Kimberly and Max, seriously thanks a million), colleagues, co-workers, past and current mentors, and our family members for all of their support. We couldn’t have done this without you and we love you very much.

Looking forward to eating candy with you and seeing you there.
