As far back as I can remember I was always making something.And early on I turned this enterprise into pocket change.As a kid, I made tiny little face pins from old pantyhose with googly eyes and barrettes with woven ribbons that a local gift shop sold on consignment.I jumped to hand-painted t-shirts in high school.Photography was the thing of the moment in college and after college I discovered rubber stamping.Over the years I’ve jumped from medium to medium, mixing and matching techniques and finding a common thread no matter what the material.
In the last decade I’ve focused on rubber stamps and silkscreen imagery in my work.My current obsessions include ceramic and other art jewelry and lamps and lighting. I live in New York (hence Girl in Gotham) and there is no end to the inspiration I find in this city that never sleeps.My work usually involves vibrant colors, graphics, text, and texture. My style is off beat, funky and eclectic.The act of creating brings me so much joy, but I still get a little thrill when someone actually wants to buy something I’ve made.
In my day job, I’m an online Community Manager and on my own time I’m always figuring out what kind of crafty thing I can make next or purchasing more craft supplies. Craft supplies are my weakness.That and chocolate.
