The opening reception for the group show Alternate Realities: Mixed Media Photography Experiments from CCSF on September 11th was a celebratory success! With a great turnout, plenty of wine and food and Modern Times Bookstore as a very accommodating venue, we were able to enjoy the rewards of extending our efforts beyond the class and putting on a show in the community. We also got media coverage from The Guardsman both online and in print. The work will be up until October 31st and some of the pieces are for sale at Modern Times. Continue reading

My First Handmade Book is Available at Needles & Pens!

Dreamscapes at Needles & Pens

I am very excited to announce that my book Dreamscapes is now available at Needles & Pens, a DIY shop at 16th St. & Guerrero in SF! I dropped off handmade copies earlier this week for folks to pick up and enjoy. This is my first time having my work for sale in a shop! My classmate from Design 101 at CCSF suggested I bring them there and I decided to do so. This was originally my final project but it now lives on at Needles & Pens- so treasure your own copy today before they run out! Thanks!
