New shop...Bafflegab Studio

Art vs. Craft

When I was in art school a sense of art over craft was ingrained in many of my classes and critiques. Now that I am older and oh so much wiser (ahem), I find myself creating more crafts. A healthy obsession with www.pintrest.com is helping me move away from the
pretentious notion that craft = crap.

The indie craft movement of the past decade, coupled with attending Handmade Arcade and I Made It! markets have helped me realize that crafts are not just crocheted doll toilet paper covers.

Resisting the urge to gesso this painting and start all over. I love the concept, but the result wasn't what I hoped. Will have to improve on this design.

Did you know I am published?
That's right, little ol' Em was published in an art book accompanying the 2008 show, 250 years/250 Artists at FE Gallery. That is still amazing to me years later.
Top picture is of the painting that was included in the show, Brush the Hair Out of Your Eye.
Bottom pic is of the cover of the book, In the Making, 250 Years/250 Artists.

Wow, has it really been almost 2 years since my last post? It has been really hard to update my blog, in the past year I have only done two paintings! I am planning to paint more, show more and blog more! I bought a house in November of 2009, so I been trying to make it my own! Updates soon, if I can stay away from the Housewives shows on Bravo.

New Paintings
Some paintings are new...some have been waiting for me to finish them up.
I have been trying to come up with some new subject matter, but for some reason I always go back to eyes and faces.

Modern Formations' 2009 Spring Salon
Another salon style show with an unbelievable array of art work. This show was packed floor to ceiling with artwork!
Soon I hope to get to painting more often.
Believe me, I want to everyday! But, work and life get in the way. (boo!) Moving every year doesn't help either. Check back again, I want to update this blog more often in the future!

Show at Zombo Gallery! I was a part of the 2nd Annual "Zombo's Big Hang Up" in January of 2009.

It was a great show with a varity of artwork. Zombo is a unique space in Lawrenceville. There is a gallery space, a full screenprinting shop, a DJ /promotions office, and a massage therapy studio. Check out the website!

Sorry for the blurry pic, I was in between cameras and this was taken on a friend's phone.

Have you heard of Phil Hansen?
He is an awesome artist that works in a large scale and with crazy mediums. He posts videos and pictures of himself creating the pieces. It is very interesting to see how he creates his artwork.
Here is his website
One of my favorite pieces ...
Photobucket
Mother Theresa, 2006
It doesn't look that impressive until you realize that the image is made out of dandelions. He uses all sorts of interesting . Check out his website
Posts of my work to come soon!

Small Small Small!
I am creating several pieces for the holiday shop at The Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. I usually work much larger than this, so that is a nice change for me. I am also using materials I haven't used before, such as cigar boxes, paint chips and a few other surprises. Enough talk, here are the pictures!
Some new paintings.

Painting on a cigar box

A shot of the table I work at. I should probably pretend that my workspace is spotless...but you wouldn't buy it anyway!
