…and here she is! It is available through my friends at WE LOVE CREATIVITY, an emerging artistic movement dedicated to exposing individuals to the creative works of today’s artist. Head on over to their blog to read the Q + A with yours truly! haha! There are only 50 prints available so snag one of these goodies for yourself, or for “one you love”! (christmas is coming……..)
It’s out!! I was featured in the October Art Issue of 944 Magazine. The section titled Culture Shockers featured 13 Creative Minds Propelling San Diego’s Art Scene Forward. What an honor! I still have yet to pick myself up a copy!
Artists include Chris Stamp, Jack Stricker, Italian Japanese, Ryan Crowley, Ann Berchtold, Julie Schraeger, April Game, and Brooks Sterling. Check out the issue online at 944.com and pick up a free copy at your local boutique, salon, or coffee house.

I wouldn’t consider my blog a “fashion blog” per say….I would call it more of an art blog…or maybe I shouldn’t even try to categorize it at all! haha. Just my life, work, inspirations, and other odds and ends along the way. But I would definitely say fashion IS art. So I suppose it fits right in. Fashion is something I have always loved. Perhaps not quite as much as art, but it follows right on its tail! Still, one of my favorite things to do is to put together an outfit. Usually I end up with a room piled high with clothes, but sometimes that’s what it takes to find just the right look isn’t it!? ? I admit I have gotten a little “fashion lazy” with my long work days and crazy non-stop schedule. Sometimes it’s easiest to roll out of bed and throw on the first thing I see. I mean, really! BUT, when I do have time to think about what I want to wear…I have all too much fun. I have been keeping up as much as I can with Fashion Week updates as they come in (usually via STYLE.COM email blasts)…but I was finally able to really dive into a good majority of the Spring 2011 collections the other day from Paris, Milan, London and New York. I was inspired (to say the least). Here are just a few of my highlights. Hope you are inspired too!
Clean sportswear and a neutral color palette never goes out of style! Phillip Lim takes the cake with his Spring 2011 collection! I love the way he mixed up fabrics with this collection (lots of sheers) and created unpredictable shapes and layers. And ohhhh…the detachable collars!! (DIY!?)
So pretty it hurts. Ultra-feminine looks in a pastel palette.
A little bit sporty, a little bit urban chic! I love this collection because it is so wearable! Props to Isabel for creating something we all can wear!
My life has been crazy this last week so I have had little time for updates. BUT…to catch up….two Sundays ago I participated in the THREAD Show down at Horton Plaza, in the heart of downtown San Diego. It’s a place where emerging fashion designers and artists can display their work and reach new audiences. My art was hung in the gallery section of the show, coordinated by my friends at Art Kills Artists.
Jedidiah was also there selling new loot. Key pieces from our Fall Collection were showcased in the fashion show (seen in the video below).
I was OVERWHELMED at how many people came out for the event! Thank you so much to everyone who visited and bought some of my work! It was quite a happy day!
