papier mache earrings!






50 pairs of handmade papier mache earrings are now available to purchase at coast to coast vintage . 50% of each earring sold is donated to no kid hungry * so far we have sold 31 pairs and have already donated over $700!! thanks to jaimee for her brilliant idea to collaborate and help others during these times of covid19 quarantine. with 3 kids at home, i know how hard it is to keep food in the house with the future so uncertain. these earrings were intended to travel to portland to sell at art and soul retreat but i had to eat my airline tickets and the workshops that were scheduled. thank you for your purchases, every dollar counts!

art center college of design pasadena






A  full class! My Papier mache college teaching gig was a huge success at Pasadena Art Center College of Design. I've been posting most of my stories on Instagram these days since it's a more direct way to document in these fast moving times ... but I'll try to keep the blog alive this year! Maybe the corona virus will slow things down with all the cancellations/closures and people will go back to drinking tea and reading blogs! Ha haaa! Stay well and enjoy this little yellow bootie dude,blue deer, animal band, stretchy calico cat and cake. I always wish I had taken more photos of the student art. There are too many good ones that got away

discovery channel serengeti!!!

these 10 ft. massive papier mache animals are from a whirlwind 48 hour week-end project that i'm sooo thankful to have been a part of! this installation of elephant and lioness for discovery chanel serengeti was created simply of wood structure, recycled cardboard, paper and flour+water paste. i got to work with tony pinyata king and his crew in whittier for vector media nyc (tony is an east la local master traditional paper mache artist and genius!) looking forward to more enormous, fun paper mache projects like this in the future!
