BFA Show

The 27th of June was the opening night for the BFA. It was really great to get to talk with people about my work and see it hung in the gallery. I was really thankful I got a great spot to show my work which was right when you go through the doors of the Spori gallery.

This was the piece that got the most compliments. Her name is Betty. It was one of the first monotypes I printed in this edition and originally it wasn't one of my favorites but I'm beginning to see why people like it. It doesn't have as many colors as the rest of the edition but maybe that is why it stands out.

I'm almost done! The show starts this week on the 26th and will be going on until graduation which is the 18th of July. Also there will be an open house on Friday the 27th which should be allot of fun.

I have 12 in the BFA show. They are all monotypes printed on fabric and then mounted on 20x28 wood panels.

For my mom.

I just finished making my mom a little case for her mac book yesterday. Shes a brave middle school teacher and uses it for work so I figured she needed something cute to take it to school in. I'm in love with the fabric and I hope she likes it too!

Almost done...

I finished my BFA final project on Friday and I am excited to have it all done. I decided that since the work was on fabric that instead of signing the work with pen that I would hand embroider my initials on the side of each pannel. I took them to get photographed and when they were sitting in my car I thought they looked pretty cool on there side so I took this. When I get those pictures from the photographer ill have to post a few. Now all I have left is to work on my artist statement... Yikes!

I did this print recently to celebrate my grandmother Nina who turns 90 this summer. This is the picture I used in the piece. It’s a picture of her riding a bike for the first time. She told me a boy took her on a date to go for her first bike ride and they ended up going 21 miles.

It’s interesting how I’m starting to notice the artists that influence my style. I have become a big fan of Robert Rauschenberg and I see his Neo- Dada and pop art style in many of my works.

My talented friend Lizzy House who designs fabric and is an amazing printmaker tagged me which means I have to write down seven things most people don’t know about me…

1. I was voted most unique in my high school for the yearbook.
2. If I look a letters quickly I don’t know the difference between the letter b and a d… They look the same to me because I’m dyslexic.
3. My grandma who had severe Parkinson lived with my family for 5 years when I was a kid. I spent a lot of time with her and taking care of her. We were like siblings.
4. I love watching old black and white movies probably due to number 3. Also the men were gentlemen and the women were all so glamorous.
5. I use to have to go surfing for my parents to buy me school clothes.
6. I think it would be fun to be a racecar driver. I like driving fast and for long distances.
7. I once won a hula-hoop contest.

Oh and these are some great portraits done by one of my one favorite people Maddy Lucas. She’s a wonderful photographer and she let me be her model for one of her assignments. It was a little cold out that day.

BFA Monotypes in Progress

This semester is my first semester BFA and I’ve been working on my final project which will be shown in the schools art gallery sometime in June or July. This is a little of what I’m working on now and what my final show will look like. They are all Monotypes done on fabric that will then be mounted on wood panels that are 28”x20”.

The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho!

The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho, which is a great little museum in Idaho Falls, is having a show on printmaking from now until April 12Th. The whole show is to make people more aware of printmaking and all the different processes. The museum is also hosting some of the work done by my advanced Printmaking class. This is one of the pictures of our class from last Thursday which was opening night. My class was all so thankful for this opportunity to show and even sell our work. I loved just being there with other artist and people who appreciate art and being able to talk with them about printmaking and my work.

This was us a few days before the show when we were bringing our work to the museum and figuring out all the paperwork, labeling, and pricing. If you are ever want to check out the museum here is where you find all you need to know.

Oh and thanks for the pictures lizzy!
