this has been such an important show for me and is actually starting to feel real for the first time in a month. i love it and am in love with it. as my first gallery show, i am happy to stand by it and truly call it my own; a reflection of who i am as an artists and the true emotions that i have felt.

the project that i am currently working on is my opening project for LITTLE by darin michelle. my goal is to only create clothing and accessories that are directly inspired by the art and projects i am currently working on. right now, i am working on my Circus Ballerina line and my initial branding line (which i will be typing about in the next blog).
i am fortunate to have amazing and talented friends who were readily willing to help me out for the photoshoot which started this project:
Photography: Becka Rosol
Makeup: Jess Plummer
Hair: Ashley Dombrowsky
these ladies made it soooo easy to work on this shoot and have fun.
the goal with each photo is to create a piece of art that feels as though it is dimensional though it is flat. the theme of the Circus Ballerina collection is to seek or find grace in the midst of chaos. sometimes the best way to deal with ourselves and the fact that grace isn’t always easily accessible, is to put a face on and perform; pretend.
i can’t wait for you all to see the full series.
