burn to shine


Over the past 3 months, nearly every evening, I’ve been burning mini wood pieces for my solo show, Burn to Shine. I’ve created 100 pieces! It’s what I set out to do, but in the middle (and to be honest at the end) I thought I wasn’t going to make it. I committed to 100 because I thought it’d be a good goal. It’s been physically hard and yet incredibly rewarding. I’ve explored and played with negative space, pattern, background, and character. This was my first attempt at creating such a large number of original wood pieces – I tried to keep each piece distinct and interesting. I won’t say I’ll never do it again, but I might give myself more time!

I will be sharing a few collections of the pieces through this week. I hope to see you at the opening night at Trickster in Berkeley this Saturday! If you’re not in the area the pieces will be up for sale after opening night ^_^

After that, I’ll be taking a long hiatus from wood burning!

another piece from my solo show!

dockers + thanks

the above image is from the 8 images i created for “these friends of mine” a space where imaginary friends accompany children and adults in their explorations of the world around them. the images are my first set of limited edition prints – only 25 of each will ever be available.

the opening reception (photos) was on friday and i was quite floored by the love and support from the people who came out. filling the walls of a gallery with my work and sharing it with people who feel what i put into the work is truly a remarkable feeling.

so, thank you.

the show is running for the next two months (eee!) at rare device. if you have a chance, please stop in… ! if you’re too far, all the work – limited edition illustrations and wood burnings are available to purchase online.

thank you, again.


this is a preview of some of the wood burnings i’ve completed for my solo show (opening reception on september 9th)… i’ll be working away on these all week! hope you had a lovely weekend!
