Seinfeld in Gold: Necklaces About Nothing

So, it’s been a crazy few months. What’s felt like a million projects and jobs all due one right after the other, lots of big decisions, mom duty, and attempting to completely redo my site has left me wondering how the hell it’s already October.  Anyway, in between all that my husband and I have continued to expand on our fun little jewelry-making venture.

As everyone knows, Seinfeld is my all-time favorite show (proof here and here), so I was THRILLED when I got invited to participate in Galley 1988 (East)’s ‘Art Show About Nothing’.  We decided to do a small, limited line of affordable pieces based on some of my favorite lines from the show, 5 quotes all together.  They are all gold-plated, handcrafted, and boxed in hand-stamped box inspired by black & white cookies because,.. SEINFELD.  They will be available in small quantities starting next Saturday through Gallery 1988.

Follow me on Instagram for more info as time gets closer!

Crazy 4 Cult: Back in LA

UPDATE: Original brass 1/1 necklace and shadowbox now available HERE.

So excited to be included in my 7th (or is it 8th?) year at Gallery 1988′s Crazy 4 Cult! This year I wanted to try something a little different, so I enlisted the help of my husband, and together we recreated the maze from The Shining.. In wearable necklace form!

Made from Brass Alloy #260, it took 18.6 million revolutions on our CNC machine to cut out!  We went through so many attempts to get the right one.  It hangs in a black shadowbox, with a reversible back panel (so it can lay on flat black or the rug pattern from the Overlook Hotel) so it can be displayed as a piece of art as well.  Really excited about this one.  We’re thinking of doing a small run of these in the future, so if interested, please email me!

Crazy 4 Cult: Back in LA opens Friday December 12th, 7-10pm. Check it out, it’s going to be awesome this year!

A Peek at My Halloween Past

I’ve been posting each year’s Halloween costume on here for a while now, but I don’t think I’ve ever had them all together. So today I’m celebrating some of my favorites from childhood and on. I’ve mentioned this in the past, but my family is seriously crazy about Halloween. We used to go camping each fall to a campground that held a costume contest, and we would try every year to come up with something weirdly original. Then I went away to art school, and the trend continued.  Now that I have my own kid, I’m hoping to pass along the family tradition.. Poor guy doesn’t know what he’s in for!

Ghostbusters 3oth Anniversary

So psyched to be a part of this show!  And that I was able to squeeze in one last painting before taking a 2 month ‘new-baby’ break.  After so many years of doing pop-culture related pieces, it can sometimes seem like there’s nothing original left to do, with so much overlap between galleries & shows.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE working on these shows, and am so grateful for every invite I get, but I decided this year to cut back on the amount of ones I participate in.

But when G1988 asked me about this one, it was a no-brainer.  One of my favorite movies, and a big anniversary to boot.  I decided to keep it simple, and base my piece off of one of the 1st scenes in the movie.. Dr. Peter Venkman’s ESP test.

This show will be traveling from NYC, to LA, Chicago, & then San Diego Comic-Con.  First up is NYC opening this Saturday!  Info on flyer below.

It’s been a long while since my last update, but things have been really busy around here with work & non-work related stuff.  So happy to finally be back at it in the studio!  I’ve been working on this piece for Gallery 1988 West’s upcoming Say Hi to the Bad Guy, presented by Crazy 4 Cult.

This time around artists will be focusing on their favorite villain from any cult film..  Even though I have many favorites, I decided to go with Frank Booth from Blue Velvet, because I believe him to be the creepiest, craziest bad guy of them all.  A psychopathic drug dealer, pimp, and sadist, he is both a horrible and fascinating character, who easily has some of the most memorable scenes of all time.

Show opens Friday, October 18th at Gallery 1988 West in LA.

Fol Chen: False Alarms Video

So excited to see this project finally come to life!  Last year an old friend of mine, talented video director, Keith Musil, and I talked about how awesome it would be to collaborate on something.  I came up with a few concepts and eventually fleshed out and wrote, Light As a Feather.

The idea was that a group of girls come together at a slumber party to play the old game, Light As a Feather, Stiff as a Board (à la The Craft).. But it goes awry.  The girl floats up, but becomes stuck midair and no one can seem to get her down.  Her parents call the paramedics, pray for her, try an exorcism.  Eventually as time passes on, they decide to hold a funeral and mourn for their loss.. The parents fall apart, lose the house and it becomes abandoned.. All the while the girl floats on.

After a while, the novelty of this floating girl fades away, and nobody seems to notice her up there anymore.   People break in to the house, hold parties, trash the place.  Years later, the house is knocked down, to become an empty lot.. And the girl is still there, most likely forever.

Keith decided to hold on to my concept until the right project came along.  This year the LA-based band, Fol Chen, asked Keith to direct the video for a track from their new album, False Alarms.. When he pitched the Light As a Feather concept to them, they loved it!  I can’t tell you how awesome it is to see one of my ideas in the live-action form.. Adds such a different dimension to my normally, 2-D work. Keith did such an amazing job with the video, I’m so excited to have collaborated with him on it!

Breaking Bad Book

A few months ago, AMC contacted me about an art book they were putting together for the cast & crew of Breaking Bad as a gift for the end of the series.  I was honored to contribute my 30 Days of Saul Goodman image, since I’m such a fan of the show, and had so much fun working on these pieces.  So sad to think it’s ending so soon!

‘The Shining’ Maze Necklace

How amazing is this brass necklace of the maze from The Shining?  My crazy-talented husband made it for me!  So excited (and proud) to finally be able to wear it.. :)

UPDATE: I’ve had a nice response to this necklace, thank you!  I may have to convince my husband to make a few more and put them on my site for sale..

An Evil Dead Halloween


I got a bit of a late start on my costume this year, but luckily my friend Marc & I had already decided on Evil Dead 2 last Halloween while creating our They Live costumes.   I’ve been wanting to try and recreate a version of these hats from a painting I did a while back, so it was a great excuse to give it a shot!  I went as the cabin, Marc went as Necronomicon, and we bloodied up my husband to play Ash.

If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter, you may have already seen some of these, but I decided to add a few work in progress shots.  Hope you have a Happy Halloween!



Marc created the foam-core structure (complete with a light & switch), while I built up the structure of a vintage hat and painted the cabin.  Add a hot glue gun, tiny trees, a matchbox car, tease up the hair, and Presto!

Marc built his book with a skull mask as a base.. Yep, it actually opens & closes!

Marc did Wes’ blood, while I used that cheap haircolor/spray you can get at a Halloween shop (it actually worked, surprisingly!) to spray his hair dark (he’s normally a redhead)

As a side note, the next day I woke up and found this next to my bed.  :)
