Plankton Pageantry

A new series of sealife emerged from the studio this week, ghostly white and ready for 3-D scanning and prototyping. Once they are printed as 3" plastic miniatures, they can be refined and made into collectible oceanic super heroes. I'm also working on trading cards with images and a little science to describe each character's attributes and super powers.

End of January will take me to an artist residency in downtown Boise at Surel's Place. I am excited and grateful for the opportunity to experience a new environment and wonderful people, and am looking forward to sharing my work and enthusiasm for ocean life.

After Surel's Place, I'll drive directly to Playa for a month residency there. I am so pleased to be able to return there and have more time in that nourishing creative place.  In both residencies, I will be working on plans for marketing my planktonic sculpture both as large art forms and as educational toys.
