Eddie Emerson and I are living loft in downtowner Gainesville. Expect LOTS of new art & music from us 🙂
As featured in The Narrow and exhibited at The Hardback Cafe and SL8 Gallery in Gainesville, Florida.
This new series depicts the penal system in jungly Gainesville Florida and features stories from women formally incarcerated at Lowell Prison – the largest women’s prison in the country – as published in local Art and Culture magazine The Fine Print.
The drawings are named after the woman whose story I cut up and used in each piece.

And even though I actually looked gallery appropriate for once (knee-length black skirt and cropped short sleeve black shirt with nice heeled black clogs) and had a good hair day, there aren’t any pictures of me haha. I was too busy drinking wine and taking photos of my friends/artistic collaborators 🙂 So just imagine how awesome and happy I looked in front of these minimalist smoke drawings in this amazing gallery space. Thanks for much to SL8 and Gerard (and Michael Garvin who orchestrated the whole thing) for letting me do this pop-up after the pieces spent two months at The Hardback Cafe. The ones with the asterisks are still for sale! $150 OBO
& if ya really want to buy something, come out THIS Thursday to The Hardback in Gainesville, Florida and pick up one of my original smoke drawings for only with half the money going to the formally incarcerated women at Lowell Prison whose stories I use in each piece. 🙂 Awesome show too – Baby Killers opens at 10pm!

New smoke drawing series “Jail Flowers,” my first since 2015! Smoke & Wax on paper with cut-up stories from past and current female inmates at Lowell Prison, just south of Gainesville, featured in the Winter 2019 edition of The Fine Print – an independent arts & culture mag in Gainesville, FL.
“Jail Flowers” is a work-in-progress, and along with completing 9 smoke drawings to match the 9 stories, I’ll also be going over the images with jail-issued pen and deodorant for paint and will use a tampon for a brush – materials often used by prisoners for painting. *sample pictures here are low res&underexposed
I got caught up in facebook land. It’s definitely been a helpful bulletin board/show getter but also it’s been soul-sucking and time-consuming. When all is said and done with Baby Killers shows which is happening this month, I’ll be retiring my account for a while while I work on new songs and artwork. In the meantime, here’s the latest Bruise News/Letter. Thanks for reading!
And here’s a cool tree from jungly Gainesville, FL:
