Hello - I'm learning to blog



This is my new blog, where I will be showing my current work, upcoming shows, and keeping things updated as I get ready to go to Philly, PA. for the Rosen Show. We are working on the site, bringing it up to date thanks to the hard work of my brother, Jonathan, who is far smarter at this whole computer operation than I.

I'll be adding images, updates, studio images, etc. so you will know what I am up to artistically, along with my other activities, such as teaching and life as a radio DJ. I just graduated with my Masters of Fine Art from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in sculpture, with an MFA Thesis show at the Soap Factory in Minneapolis, MN. The exhibit was about the fragility of life demonstrated through indicator species such as frogs, fish, and birds, while looking at most transitional and vulnerable and influential stage of being, comparative embryonic development.

I am not an English major by any stretch.... so grammar and spelling... just expect it will be... ummmm... bad. :) i do the best I can. What I can't say in words I express in the visual combination of art and science.

Speaking of which, this month I will be teaching at the Science Museum of MN. It is a blast. Teaching science through art... the kids and I couldn't be happier. It's the perfect place for me. It eats TONS of time... so if I fall a little behind on this, it probably has to do with trying to figure out how to make a tectonic plate-puzzle, or how the universe expands do to this "dark matter / dark energy" stuff. I love it.

I just finished 2 shows; Grand Forks, ND (Grand Cities Art Fest), & the Eagan Art Festival, in Eagan, MN, along with a solo showing at Pizza Luce, Down Town. My next show will be at the Highland Art Fair, in St. Paul, MN. July 19, 20, and 21.

Here's some of the work you can see up above, along with an image of my postcard from my Thesis show. (I'm still working on how to arrange images, so things are in - no particular order.

That's all for now.
Yes, that IS all there is - so you should just keep dancing.
much love

I'd say you have a good start. This is a good place to post new and in-process work. You could even write posts about music and politics (and after FINALLY listening to your show, I'd love to read some music reviews). Keep it up!
