This summer, I am working at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in the contemporary gallery where they are hosting an exhibition for fashion designer and textile-lover, Carla Fernandez. There are workshops for embroidery, tassel making, and weaving, live dance performances, and beautiful garments that I get to look at all summer long. Not too shabby for a recent art school grad!

Emma Welty's Bookstore | Blurb Books

Finally have some of these books up for sale on blurb!

during my two week stay in venice i became fairly obsessed with the marble patterns in the villas and churches and i made graphite rubbings of some of the church floors to use for a new book project. these patterns are based in the traditional book-matched marble in venetian architecture. another book is on its way!

selected spreads from the new book that catalogues the process of using a natural dye every single day for the month of february. the book will be available on blurb soon!

february, 2014. used a different natural dye each day for four straight weeks and wove each into a day for the calendar.

this semester’s project - making a natural dye for each day of the month of february out of things that can be harvested or collected in the city during the winter. so far i have used cabbage, rhododendron leaves, daisies, black beans, avocado, pine needles, spinach, and red onions. better photos to come!
