Four large-scale animations created in collaboration with Sundance TV for this year's Sundance Film Festival 2015. Visuals on view at Sundance TV HQ in Park City, Utah on giant 34-foot-wide LED screen. Animations explore the concept of "story" and it's importance to Sundance's brand messaging- the light, the scene, scenes that define and the creative process of writing and storytelling. Visuals all created with handmade elements and photographed including type from my beloved 1945 Remington DeLuxe typewriter (typewriters as a magical age-old tool for writers and tale-tellers throughout history.) Animated with Julia Kuswardi. Videos coming soon!

The trash all over my neighborhood used to really piss me off until my Trashabet was born. MORE TRASH PLEASE. These collections are the culmination of hours and hours of searching for the wonderful, smelly, sticky alphabetical treasures hidden in the cracks of the sidewalks of Brooklyn...a daily typographic treasure hunt!
Trashabet 5 is here! CHECK IT OUT!
I call my collaged snapshot collections “Still Motion” and use them for editorial, retail, outdoor and fine art projects including large-scale light boxes, wallpapers and giant booth graphics.
The final collages are the product of many hours of walking around shooting a particular theme like arrows or letters often over the course of several months or even years.

I created a colorful world map for the December issue of Delta Sky Magazine. Yippeeee!
By far, one of my favorite things is my beautiful, black and smelly 1945 Remington DeLuxe typewriter. I use my typewriter all the time- it’s a workout and I always injure my fingers. But the letters always come out differently depending on how much oomph you give the keys and it’s also ideal for writing love letters.
My typewriter skyline is featured in American Illustration 30.
Two pieces are exhibited in a new book called Typewriter Art: A Modern Anthology by Barrie Tullett.

Wandering the streets of Havana, seeing the nooks, tasting the crannies, how can a place be so lush & so parched all at once? This handmade photo journal contains pages of colorful collages and polaroids from my trip to Cuba. The book was a gift to my husband who walked through his history for the very first time. It took about a year to make.
