My show, Retrograde, is about to come down at Bottle Bar East on Frankford Avenue in Philadelphia. If you have time this weekend check it out or click on the image to see more. I have included photos of the work in the Mixed Media section of my site.

I kept busy in the fall by participating in an Obama campaign project with Ariana Becher. The project was to decorate the campaign office in the Graduate Hospital area of Philadelphia. We collaborated on the design of the images, painted them, and she installed them before the election.

Back in October, I also illustrated and designed a promotional card for Trophy Bikes and their Harvest Sale.


More work is on the way, with some exciting news in April!

A very busy lady here! Since July I have been super occupied by moving back to Philly from France. Before I left France, I had an exhibition of my collages in Angers. It was a great experience, check under the MIXED MEDIA link on the left to see photos fromt the show and collages. Prints are available, shoot me an email for pricing.

I participated in the Second Street Festival, located in Northern Liberties by having a Pop Up Gallery Art Space. I showed my collages again with work by my fiancÚ, Jesse Beamesderfer, and my friends, Carly Herman and Emily Kane.

I have a great deal of upcoming projects, some logo design as well as submissions for a show in October here in Philadelphia. Updates and more information to come soon.

After a long hiatus, my site is back up. I have added a French version of my site, to hopefully gain some interest in both countries, since I've been installed here in France for three years. I hope in this way to continue to develop my French. I additionally feel like the new layout addresses a multitude of my interests, which is not only design, but writing, art, mixed media, photography and more. Feel free to say hello, and tell me what you think. As the French say, à bientôt.
