American Spring 2018: Signs of the Times

Moved and inspired by the courage and passion of the young MSD survivors of the Valentine Day massacre in Parkland, FL
I photographed the signs at the March For Our Lives in San Francisco, and created compositions for a new silk scarf and bandana, to honor and share the message and spirit of this important, student-led initiative.

When you purchase a March For Our Lives scarf or bandana, a portion of proceeds will benefit the March For Our Lives Action Fund.

“AMERICAN SPRING” CAMPAIGN 2017

Inspired by the Women’s March on Washington, and by the clever, witty, irreverent signs crafted by the marchers

I created compositions for a silk scarf and a cotton pillow cover celebrating the message and spirit of the march.

When you purchase a scarf or a pillow cover from the American Spring collection, a portion of proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood.

DESIGN OF THE MONTH: MASKS in RED and WHITE

These amazing Korean masks were used in a variety of purposes…

…in war, ceremoniously to drive away evil spirits, and in the arts, especially in ritual dances and theater. The often horrifying or grotesque masks were used in shamanistic practices for their ability to evoke fear, and humor.

Limited edition prints, wall hangings, pillow covers, silk scarves, as well as silk and cotton shirts, are available upon request, or on our web boutique.

DESIGN OF THE MONTH: TREADING WATER

This work is about time suspended…

… the same way a body suspended in water must tread the water in order to stay afloat. The moving legs and the water’s refraction and diffraction combine to create an abstract rhythm.

Limited edition prints, wall hangings, pillow covers, silk scarves, as well as silk and cotton shirts, are available upon request, or on our web boutique.

DESIGN OF THE MONTH: SCAFFOLD

Scaffolding can be beautiful.

This one is from the third phase of NYC’s High Line. The construction process turned out to be far more rewarding visually then the luxury high rise that appeared once the scaffolding was removed.

Limited edition prints, wall hangings, pillow covers, silk scarves, as well as silk and cotton shirts, are available upon request, or on our web boutique.

DESIGN OF THE MONTH: BROOKLYN WALLS

I am struck by the inventiveness, variety, and irreverence of the art that covers the walls of many cities.

The combination of creativity and technical talent is ever evolving, and I am impressed by the spontaneity with which these city dwellers express being part of a city.

Limited edition prints, wall hangings, pillow covers, silk scarves, as well as silk and cotton shirts, are available upon request, or on our web boutique.
