Art & Embroidery Projects
"Why So Long To Put On?"
I didn't so much as make this for Mindy Kaling, as sweat-ily and nervously hand it to her during a book signing. She was very kind. When @Hanecdote inspired me to pick up stitching again (after a 20-year hiatus), this is the first thing I made!
This is a "Jembroidery" piece I made for a Cinefamily art show and film screening where we all got to meet Christy Marx, the badass creator of Jem! It is based off an animation still from the original cartoon. I need to track down the animation artist so I can credit them, too!

Chili & Brillo
I was lucky enough to get to stitch little portraits of my friend Gaby's (@hellogabyandco) puppies Chili and Brillo as part of a holiday gift exchange! They are based on Gaby's beyond charming drawings. She is an extremely awesome illustrator and all-around cool person!!!
Jembroidery Workshop at Junior High
Junior High is an amazing grassroots artspace Los Angeles founded by Faye Orelove. I was so proud to teach a workshop there on their opening day. Today, it's a place for music, art, friendship, acceptance, safe space, and so much more.
