May has been fruitful!
I am finally getting back to editing the artist talks for Opulent Mobility 2020. In the latest video I talk with Misty Athena Stokes about invisible disabilities, disability identity, art, and fashion choices for Zoom events.
On June 10th at 6 PM PST I'll be part of an online curatorial talk for Blank Canvas 8, a group exhibit I co-curated along with several others. To find out more, take a look at the online exhibit at the link above, come to the show I mounted at Wingwalker Brewery, or visit the other locations in Pasadena, Santa Monica, and in Malibu. I'll share the link to the curatorial talk once it has been set.
Congratulations to Abilities Dance Boston on their adaptation and production of the Firebird Ballet! The show live streamed May 14-15 and was a big success. I'm proud to be the costume designer for the dancer and their wheelchairs, walkers, and canes. Check out the thoughtful review by Art Fuse on how the Firebird Ballet is taking inspiring flight.
And if you're needing a little Stitch Therapy, I've got you covered. Join us June 6 from 5-7 PM PST and we'll get something started (or finished). Get in touch for the Zoom link. As always, this one is free. If you'd like more in depth sewing, check out the classes page and sign up for something! Intro to Sewing is next month and we start Draping 101 in June.
Hey. Thanks so much for being part of this with me. You don't know how much I appreciate it.

I re*make mobility devices and materials and give them new lives. Sometimes I staple drape.
