My current project explores what can be done when you stop buying clothing and decide to rely on your artistic ingenuity. I'm interested in the social dimensions of clothing and clothing making, of making versus buying and the value and valuation of the labor involved with making and re-making garments. 

I've been painting seriously for over 30 years, but I began with clay, metal and to a lesser extent fiber as my media. For a while I very much enjoyed making and selling wearable items when I could find the time to do so while still painting every day. It was exhausting, and even though in terms of money it was a losing proposition, What I liked, aside from the making, was the interaction with the patrons. My current practice is integrated and egalitarian between media. 

I feel a bit odd using Patreon as my blog platform since my project could be seen as anti-consumerist; offering premiums for various levels of support is essentially a kind of merchandising. That is why currently all of my postings are free, and I'm not offering set premiums for the levels. With graduate school student loans to contend with on top of just earning the money to live, I'm not going to refuse any patrons who want to support my work!  Frankly, that would be awesome.

You're AWESOME! Wow, I don't know how to thank you. Well, I'll try. While I'm not doing specific premiums, at this level I can afford to see what you might like that I could send you.

This is how much I need to pay the costs of framing, transportation and printing for my next solo exhibition in September 2017! Even with doing the framing myself, just buying the materials to frame all the General Slocum Series paintings is going to cost over $2,000. My car is tiny, I'm going to need to rent a van to get the work to and from the gallery, and I need money for printing the exhibition catalog booklet.
