Hey friends! I'll be upstate all weekend long with Dusty Rose Vintage for the Phoenicia Flea at Stone Ridge Orchard. Come on by and say hi if you're lucky enough to have escaped the city. I'll be selling maps and other prints. And bring some sunblock! I think it's going to be an amazing, sunshine-y weekend.
Thank you to Paula Flynn for featuring my work on her sight, The Shopkeepers! She put together this write-up of my Etsy shop, which incidentally is the perfect place to pick up a Valentine's Day gift for your beloved. Cheers!
This Sunday, December 13, Urban Outfitters Space 98 is hosting a Dreamers and Doers Holiday Market. Come by and check out the awesome group of makers that Dusty Rose has brought together for this festive affair. Drinks and treats by the Gorbals!

WHEN: 12- 5 pm
August has been a fun and busy month, filled with road-tripping, packing and unpacking, making prints, sketching, and not a lot of cooking. I had the pleasure of getting away on a couple of weekends with my good friend, Maresa, of Dusty Rose VIntage to participate in the Phoenicia Flea, a traveling makers' market organized by James Anthony and Paul Lowe, of Sweet Paul. The first weekend we hit Accord, NY where we set up shop at the beautiful Westwind Orchard, an organic apple farm where, if you come on the right weekend, you can get beautiful, zucchini blossom-topped wood-fired pizzas. Weekend two took us to Asbury Park, NJ, right on the boardwalk next to the amazing Market at 5th Ave. , a really interesting makers' market in its own right. On the way home from Jersey, we paid a visit to Seven Arrows Organic Farm, where Farmer Meg gave us a tour of the farm and introduced us to all her hard working animal companions. This month I met so many wonderful people all doing what they love, weathering the inconsistencies of small business ownership, smiling at the little victories, and laughing at the unpredictability of it all. Made me happy. Here are some silly pics from the months happenings.
2. My "Don't Forget to Water the Plants" print is now up for purchase here at Uncommon Goods. Big shout out to Katy Loeb, who was willing to hear out my obsession with domestic flora.
I feel lucky to get to work with good people and companies that have an interest in supporting artists and embrace their creativity.
I'm happy to share a new series of prints done in partnership with Portland Trading Company, an amazing little shop in Portland, Maine. It recognizes the hardworking people of Maine-- the lobstermen, the hunters, the Maine guides-- that make this place so uniquely tough. Check them out here. Big thanks to the wonderful Kazeem Lawal, proprietor of PTC, for inspiring me.
Coming up next week, I'll be a featured vendor at Dusty Rose's Etsy Source Small Pop-Up for Small Business Saturday. Hope you can make it out, and get some of your holiday shopping done early!
I now have a limited number of prints from the Revival Series available to purchase at Dusty Rose Vintage on Greenpoint Ave. Stop in for one tonight, and to sip cocktails and check out a new capsule collection from Alissa Laderer. Fun!
Can't stop by the shop? Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can ship one to you!
