Red Coin Cunts


A fresh bouquet of Coin Cunts for the upcoming Valentine season--made with love especially for all you nasty women! This new print features the reds and purples found in my larger collection of inverted coin purses. Women around the world are fighting back and speaking out in multitudes to challenge the rise of misogynist, racist, and ignorant rhetoric that is dominating the cycle of our lives. Your purchase of this print will support my work and a portion of the proceeds will go to the local chapter of the National Organization for Women who sponsored the Women's March I participated in this past weekend.

Love & Empathy


Since November 10th, these words have been ringing in my ears:
To all the little girls watching...never doubt that you are valuable and powerful & deserving of every chance & opportunity in the world. --Hillary Clinton
On Saturday we joined with millions of others around the world for a "sister march" of the Women's March On Washington in Shreveport, Louisiana.

As we gathered on the sidewalk of the courthouse to march we met friendly folks of all generations. Many approached Lizzie to tell her they came today to march for her and for her generation. They told her they were proud of her for marching for what she believes in. They told her she was beautiful. I thank these kind strangers for empowering her.

My daughter is young and on the cusp of womanhood. She has so many questions, she is confused about the hateful rhetoric flying around the news and social media. She wants to do something to make it stop and to show love and empathy towards others.

Together we read the mission statement and like a wave it echoed through the crowd lined around the courthouse. Together we took a first step and we marched. Hear our voice!


Thank you for documenting our family at the march Kristen!

Encaustic Sculpture

 

During the second half of last year I spent a good deal of time experimenting with encaustic paint on three dimensional surfaces. Out of this process two finished works emerged and I've finally gotten around to photographing them for the website. This Spring I'll set up my window box fan to expel those pesky wax fumes and get to work on some more of these encaustic sculptures.

New Print


In light of recent political events here in the United States my series of 'Coin Cunts' has continued to gain interest and raise awareness of women's issues on many different fronts. I am continuing to seek out used kisslock coin purses with colorful and/or interesting interiors to grow the collection. As of its last installation this past summer it numbered over 100 pieces! 


This image is now available as a limited edition, poster-sized pigment print in my webshop. Its proceeds will be used to fund the growth of this project and its exhibition. You can purchase the new print here.
