Art Soak Yardsale- June 14th

A reminder that there will be an Art-Sale-Exhibition-Party-Extravaganza on June 14th at Camphor Studios.

Artists whose art will be featured and for sale include:

Patrick Vincent

Helen Franzen

Tonja Torgerson

Julia Kouneski
Sam Hoolihan
Ellen Mueller

Camphor Studios is located on Lake and Chicago on the third floor of the Robert Shoes Building.

The Art Soak Yardsale will run all afternoon, starting at 3pm, with a chance to meet the artists and get great deals on art.

The evening will feature an exhibition of work recently created by the studio members to celebrate the establishment of Camphor Studios.

One of my favorite local bands, Switzerlind, will be joining us in the fun. Music will start at 8pm.
Hope to see you there!


Nearly a year after orginitation COBRA, the first in the series, is complete.

Not the best photo (click on the image for a better view), it is difficult to show the detail of such a large drawing. But I wanted to get something up as soon as possible. Better images of the work to come on my website.

Branching Out

I have received an “Inspiration Pack” from UPPERCASE Gallery.

It is meant as a resource for the Old School exhibition and book that will be happening this fall. It was a great treat via international mail and I hope to starting working on my piece for the show shortly! While I don’t usually make work specifically for themed group exhibitions, this concept was irresistible.

More on this project to come.

Camphor Studios

The art space finally has a name, Camphor Studios.

With the weather warming up, I have been spending more and more time at the studio. Its beautiful there. I am planting a small container garden of edible flowers and vegetables (including this lovely viola above). And, of course, working away on the self-portrait series.

Thank you to all who came to the party last night. It was a lot of fun. We are planning many more events for the summer. The first being an art sale and opening party on June 14th. Hope to see you there!

More Website Updates

Continuing on my mission of website supplementation, I have added another section of photography. It consists of my most recent series of pinhole photographs, which has been created with tiny homemade cameras.Color photography is brand new to me, but I am enjoying the results.
