BDSM group show at Superchief Gallery LA x The Stockroom

I’m going to be showing several pieces of work at the “BDSM” group art show next month at Superchief Gallery LA.

I’m extra looking forward to this one as it’s presented by The Stockroom, who’s latex clothing brand (Syren) I happened to model for a couple of times back when I was a professional fetish model! I was even on a giant window display in their old store on Sunset Blvd a while back! I do love it when my two worlds of modeling and artwork collide :)

THE ORIGINAL COASTER SHOW IS BACK AT GALLERY 30 SOUTH! 

This October is the Seventh Anniversary of Matt Kennedy‘s World Famous COASTER SHOW!  What started at La Luz de Jesus Gallery as an emergency replacement for a last minute cancellation has blossomed into the show that launched a thousand careers, and for the second year we’ll be hosting it at Gallery 30 South.

I’ll have 4 of my coaster paintings in the upcoming Annual Coaster Show at Gallery 30th South in Pasadena, CA. This will be my third time showing in this super fun group show, though it will be my first time since it moved to Gallery 30 South from La Luz de Jesus.

OCTOBER 4–27, 2019
OPENING RECEPTION:
FRIDAY, OCT. 4, 6-10 PM

30 S Wilson Ave.
Pasadena, CA 91106

Interview with House of Theodora

House of Theodora is an online community of “women who make, create and design for sexual expression”. I discovered them quite recently via artist Cameron Cox, who posted about her interview with the site a few weeks ago. It sounded just my cup of tea so I started following them on Instagram and days later they emailed me and asked if I would be interested in doing an interview. The power of social media! Of course I jumped at the chance!

Check it out HERE. Hope you enjoy! :)

Cover artist & feature for Non-Compliant Quarterly issue 1

I’m really excited to have been chosen as the cover artist for the inaugural issue of Non-Compliant Quarterly, a new publication based in Australia “Existing at the intersection of culture, art, activism & thought leadership”. I also have a few pages featuring my work inside. The topic of the first issue is Censorship; something which I feel very strongly about as I’m sure many artists do! I’m very much looking forward also to future issues that are planning to focus on important topics such as racism, ableism and childhood trauma amongst others.

From their website: “We believe that cultural producers have an important role in our collective humanity- to document, to challenge, to create a beautiful reflection and to critique our culture.”

They are also committed to sharing the profit between all contributors, which is a welcome change in an industry that often expects that artists contribute work for free (or “exposure”) and which I think is particularly conscientious for a new and independent publication that by it’s very nature is going to have extra hurdles when it comes to promotion and advertising itself.

You can read more about the magazine and it’s mission statement and purchase a copy (digital &/or print) on their website HERE.

They also have a Patreon page where you can purchase copies and help support production costs as well as be part of a community of like-minded individuals!

Creative Bloch magazine featured artist

I have a little feature this month in the latest issue of Creative Bloch magazine with 4 pages of my work.

I also recently added a few new all-over-print t shirt designs to my store on this site and reopened my Etsy store to list my recent series of watercolor studies.. the first set sold out almost instantly and I was a little overwhelmed so I decided the second set would be easier to manage through Etsy’s automatic shipping calculator. As always, I’m also happy to arrange direct sales through email if that’s your preference!
