Hello and good greetings! There's so much in the works.
1. Tomorrow from 5-7 PM PST is Stitch Therapy. Come and join us in the Zoom room as we stitch together and help ward off our collective woes! Send me a note for the link.
(Oh yes, there have been some serious woes this week. I'm looking at you, Supreme Court.)
2. My online solo show Re-Imagining Mobility with the Ikouii Collective is up through December 17th and they did a marvelous job. Heidi Marie Photography and Ikouii make my work look spectacular.
3. Many thanks to Steve Silverman of the World Gone Good podcast! He interviewed me about Opulent Mobility recently, and the show will go up December 15th. Steve is delightful and it was such fun! His latest podcast is about Kristina Wong and the Auntie Sewing Squad, and I highly recommend it.
4. there are exciting new classes in the works!!!
First up will be Wearable Art From 2D to 3D. I'm working out the details on a downtown LA studio, but expect this to go up late January/February. It's a 3 month intensive course meeting once a week online with optional in-person labs. All sessions will be recorded, so you won't miss a thing. Get in touch for more info!
Starting from an inspiration image, we'll break down a design into its component parts, discuss the pros and cons of different materials, and build a wearable, functional work of art with materials you probably already have at home. Along the way, you'll also create your own custom dress form.
These skills are in high demand in TV and film, live and themed entertainment, advertising, and anywhere folks want wearable magic to happen. This course will boost your technical skills and can give you a real boost into an arts-based career.
I am so excited to share these things with you.
Thanks for being part of my world!

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