I will have a few small, affordably priced works at the San Francisco Book Fair, held at Minnesota Street Project. Small Pleasures is a series of sculptures that dripped off of my lead crystal sculptures in the kiln while I was making Guilty Pleasure, my most ambitious sculpture to date and on view at Catharine Clark Gallery until Sept. 1, 2018. Small Pleasures are made from melted Avon lead crystal coated in silver nitrate and lacquer.  Check them out at Catharine Clark Gallery's booth!

The File: Interview with Daniel Samaniego


I was recently interviewed by Daniel Samaniego for The File, his new interview series in Settlers + Nomads, a Las Vegas-based publication highlighting contemporary artists with local connections. We discuss drawing's limitations, opportunities, and parameters; "badassery," drawing as a feminist medium, and more.

Check it out here.
