Whenever a gift might be coming my way – All I really want is ART! This weekend we headed down to Portlandia for a little get-away weekend and went to the Augen Gallery to check out the latest show – I got MONKEY SMILE instantly! I was so excited by the work of Hibiki Miyazaki! And then I got DOUBLE MONKEY SMILE when Jesse got me this as an early birthday present!!!

It goes really great with the Faye Jones piece he got me when I had Grace and it seems there is a real Mother-Daughter theme starting to take shape in my collection as well as in my own work … More on that later!!

Again and Again

Check out this firms site – Commute – I saw the plaster wall medallion installation on Remodelista this morning and then have spent the last half hour pouring over their site.

I love the wack Mr. Rogers aspect of the first two and the nostalgia of the second two. And the feeling of looking at life through a View Master.



Tony Hafkenscheid. They are a great size too! Stunning in a few of my current projects!

Art Basel Miami Beach – Part 1.

A few of my favorites – but PLEASE understand = the images of these pieces don’t do anything for them at all. The complexity and color is lost completely.

These are by Imi Hwangbo – they are amazing layers of mylar. Hand cut and layered from small to large – each a lacy and smaller version of itself. Each piece is made of between 18-35 sheets of the mylar and they flutter in the breeze showing the exacting hand of the artist. Beautiful and amazing.

These are the most beautiful paintings in person by Berliner Anne Neukamp. Oil and egg tempura, each so full of texture and subtlety that you can only see the genius of in person. They are large and I think she will someone to watch.

John Maeda + Cliff Burton = Sold OUT before I even got a chance to purchase!

From Jen Bekman’s 20 x 200.

John is a very sweet man whom I have had the pleasure to spend time with on several occasions due to my husband’s graphic design career. I love the combination of hopefulness, pedestrian approachability, wonky type, and color. I often drive through the international district wondering which of the buildings is the one where his parents made tofu as he was growing up. Now I will imagine this as the sign that sits outside of the building = a very smart little boy’s way of addressing the “what do you want to be when you grow up?” question….
