A trip to the West Coast then home to hustle

Today, I’m writing this blog post from Los Angeles. I headed out to the Bay Area to teach an indigo dyeing workshop and have a pop-up show at Celery Space in Berkeley.  The workshop was amazingly fun and successful. I had a group of 11 interested and talented individuals take the workshop. The goods that were created excites me greatly. The pop-up show was a large success as well where I sold two weavings. This is very uncommon for me as I usually don’t sell a large amount of work. I always say I don’t get paid for my art, I get paid to be an artist. So it was a nice surprise for the trip. I’m on LA now connecting with weavers and an interior designer. The trip has been great but I’m ready to get back home and solidify some projects there. When I return I will be solidifying the date of my solo show at Vulpes Bastille which I am incredibly excited for. But for now, I gotta keep trucking. We can’t slow down, there is too much to fight for currently.

live and dye naturally,
