Some of you may already know that I'm selling fun & playful k9s rings & pendants at 7 boutiques and galleries around town (see earlier blog).

I'm pleased as punch to be teaming up with the talented jeweler extraordinaire, Sarah Mann, and also good friend.
We're creating custom rings and pendants, A.K.A PiXessories, of your beloved one(s). See my website for more information.

Gift certificates are available for both my photo shoots and PiXessories!

Cover girl!

About a month ago I entered a self portrait contest with the ISTHMUS paper in Madison. Turns out I didn't win for best portrait but as you can see I'm on the cover. Weird and funny to see my mug on the front cover!

blocks to zipper lips

Remember those alphabet blocks from childhood? Or maybe your kids or grand-kids play with them now? I was given 4 of them as an art assignment, self portrait, from my art group W.I.P (works in progress). I was going to make my head a block head, but as I started playing around I decided to use the block as my torso instead. It's funny how art works that way. Do you see the resemblance? :)

Two amazing arts, gifts and more!

This is Chris. Chris will be graduating high school in May. During the shoot, we chatted about art & music. He's a talented young man who will be going off to college (next year) to follow his dreams of becoming a professional musician or a music conductor. I left the shoot feeling inspired and excited for Chris and his new adventure to come.

St. Ben's community meal

This is part of a traveling exhibit titled "Homeless Is Not My Name".

This exhibit aims to personalize the issue, dispel stereotypes, inspire involvement, and educate on the reality of homelessness in Milwaukee.

Created through a partnership between Everest College, FUEL Milwaukee, Community Advocates, Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design, Redline Milwaukee, and volunteer photographers.

St. Ben's is where I was given the opportunity to tell part of the story. I know this subject can be depressing to talk about but, but after meeting these folks they gave me a sense of hope.

I just heard it's moving to Marquette. Stay tuned.

If you'd like to exhibit this work or knwo of others places, let me know! Thanks!
