Steven's Pavilion at Hoyt Arboretum 

Matt and I headed up to Vancouver BC recently and had a fun time walking around Stanley Park and eating our fill of izakaya and ramen. We also spent a week in Oregon checking out Portland and the Mount Hood area. I recommend checking out Hood River. It's a super cute town with lots of restaurants and artsy shops.

I've been working on some new art and I finally have some designs that I'm happy with. These designs are larger and more complex than work I've done in the past. I loved playing around with the shapes, colors, and materials. Here's a photo of some work in progress to give you an idea of what's to come...

Some work in progress...

  • Sophie Taeuber-Arp was an active member in the Dada movement and her geometric abstractions are finally getting the attention they deserve. 
  • Emma Kunz reminds me of Hilma af Klint in that her art was deeply spiritual. She would sometimes stay up for 48 hours working on her designs with the use of a handheld pendulum.
