Philadelphia Open Studio Tours POST East | October 3 - 4

Exhibition of the ongoing series, Insects Too Lovely To Repel 
and conducting open workshop on Itajime Shibori: Japanese Decorative Papermaking 

STARTLED RESPONSE from the ongoing series, Insects Too Lovely To Repel

During the POST event, I was a guest artist in the Heavy Bubble Head Quarters at 1241 Carpenter Studios, located in Hawthorne neighborhood of South Philadelphia.

All day Saturday + Sunday I had an open workshop demonstrating the 1000 years old method of Japanese decorative papermaking, Itajime Shibori.

Open to the public and free of charge, this well received event was a hands-on experience of expression and creativity through unlimited pattern and color.

I also exhibited a selection of my watercolors from the ongoing series, Insects Too Lovely To Repel. Thank you! Thankyou! to the dynamtic duo Amy Ralson and Mary Gordon, artist members of the heron studios came to install the exhibit. They really were the best - ever!

Stella Untalan's spectacular work lined the hallways of the 3rd floor in the 1241 Carpenter Studios where I held my workshop and her studio was in constant flow of bedazzeled visitors.

Artist Martha Aleo attended my Itajime Shibori workshop. You can find her review of the POST event at 1241 Carpenter Studio October 3 - 4, 2015 here
