The California Sunday Magazine

Last month I was honored to be commissioned by The California Sunday Magazine to make four artworks to accompany Nicole Allen’s article “The Unknowable Kamala Harris: The complicated career of a self-proclaimed progressive prosecutor” for the June 2019 issue. I worked closely with Artistic Director Leo Jung to strategize the pieces so that they would fit with the article and the San Francisco–based magazine’s overall aesthetic.

One challenge with this project was using sourced images. I didn’t photograph Harris myself, instead I worked with Jung and his team to select images from agencies that were then used in the construction of the pieces. This is entirely new to me and added some complications to my process, as, in every other case of making Woven Portraits and similar pieces, I’ve used images that I myself took in a devoted photo shoot.

The magazine comes out in print tomorrow.

"Go Figure" exhibition at Blue Spiral 1 Gallery, Asheville


I’m pleased to have have four pieces included in this exhibition at Blue Spiral 1 Gallery, May 3–June 9, 2019. I showed two Woven Portraits there back in 2015, as part of a craft-emphasizing series of photography exhibitions that was taking place throughout Asheville. I’m happy for the return nearly four years later in this show examining interpretations of the human forma across several media. Curated by the gallery’s Assistant Director Candace Reilly.
