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
