The Bluebird of Happiness




The Bluebird of Happiness was featured in Livingston, Montana’s 2016 4th of July Parade, submitted on behalf of myself, artists Julie Haas and Trenton Duerksen, and friends Walter, Ben and Julia. This piece was created in 24 hours. The materials include floral sheeting, hula hoops, my handmade inflatable wings, garlands, cardboard, hot glue, and a flatbed trailer. Although we did not win the competition, we succeeded at creating an exuberant feat of teamwork and spirit overnight.

Residency at Jacquard

I recently had the pleasure of creating an artwork at Jacquard’s headquarters in Healdsburg, California. With the help of owner Asher Katz, we used SolarFast photographic emulsions in conjunction with silkscreened imagery to create this new set of art curtains for my storefront studio space. The imagery is evocative of the type of television repair shop you would have once seen in my neighborhood. The colors and letters in the screens are loosely based on my experience having grapheme-color synesthesia – a neurological phenomenon that causes involuntary permanent visual associations between colors, numbers, letters, and words. The curtains will be on-view to the public all winter long at 351 Evergreen Ave. Rear Storefront in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
