This Saturday afternoon, February 27th, is the final day of Stitch Fetish 4 at the Hive Gallery (open 1-6, Wed-Sat). Not only is it your last day to come downtown and see the show in person, we’re having a panel discussion on Gender and Sexuality in Stitch (at 3:30pm) and many of the (local) artists will be in attendance.

If you’re not in the LA area you can stream live – you’ll have to download Periscope and then friend or follow @thehivegallery – and it will be archived online after the fact to watch. I believe streaming live will give you the opportunity to write in questions during the Q&A portion of the panel.

Moderated by curator, Ellen Schinderman (me), the panel participants are: Billy Kheel (who’s just had a solo show in Denver), Emma Rose Laughlin (who was in Stitch Fetish 3 and is a current featured artist at The Hive), past Stitch Fetish artist Luke Haynes (who’s very busy with The Log Cabins of Donald Judd, a show of 50 quilts), and Ashley V Blalock, a multi talented artist and lecturer at California State University, San Bernardino.

This year’s show has been fantastic. There’s some amazing works still available, so come down and see them this week or check it out online. But I hope to see you Saturday, online or in person!


I could not be prouder to a part of this amazing show, opening this Saturday (August 23rd) at Craft in America, and I’m terribly excited to give my first ever artist’s talk at 4:30pm! Also speaking Saturday is the super talented Luke Haynes (who was in February’s, “Stitch Fetish 2.”)!
So if you happen to be in LA on Saturday afternoon, come by and say hello, and check out this fantastic show.
If you cannot make it on Saturday, the show is running through the end of October and there are other events and talks along the way. I hope to see you at one of them.

That’s a thing people actually used to say. Aren’t expressions odd?

I have been craxy busy! Holy moley!! And I’m not complaining, but woof, I’m tired!! So let’s get to it!

This Saturday night is the Hive Gallery’s 9th Anniversary, best of show, which I have a piece in. It’s a new thing I’m trying, I think it will be a series. This one is “Makin’ it: in Hollywood.”


Busy busy stitching away for Gallery1988’s 10th Anniversary show (a biggie), and loving my piece, “The Filthiest Person in the World…”


And then on top of that I got the coolest commission this past week! The lead in Heathers: the Musical contacted me and wanted gifts for the cast for opening night! I cranked out 30 Heathers hankies in the past 48 hours. Here they are drying, I’ll post better photos, once they’re pressed.

Okay, back to work!

Much to do, much to say… My time as a resident at the Hive draws to a close (I’ll be down there two more Saturdays, come say hi and see arts!) but so much upcoming, elsewhere – and back at the Hive come fall.  But for now, up next, is We Made Them Do It, at Gallery1988; yep, more pop culture tomfoolery.


This time we were encouraged to make art based on movies and shows we never thought we’d get to make art about. I looked deep in my heart and made “DMG;” she’s 30″x30.” Show opens a week from Friday, 7/26 at Gallery1988 (West).


And if you missed embroidery class two weeks ago and are super bummed about it, there’s another class this weekend at Unincorporated Education. Go HERE for July classes and then click on Embroidery; come and stitch it up!

Just wanted to remind every on that tomorrow’s my last Artwalk at The Hive (for a bit) and that both  Sarah of Shape Shifter Studios and I are offering 10% off everything in the “shop” so to speak.  For those not in the LA area, we are offering the sale online through July, because we’re like that! Go to either of our etsy stores (SCHINDERMANIA or GYPSYRABBIT.) and type in RESIDENCE at check out for the discount.


The weather’s beautiful, there’s art to be seen… hope to see you Downtown LA tomorrow night!

School is in session! I made eight School House Cock, “flash cards,” (flesh cards?) that are now in my Etsy shop, and will be down at the Hive starting tomorrow.


Etsy, makes you use a “safe” preview picture; this is what my shop page looks like right now:

I love that it actually looks potentially educational!

In honor of the return of Arrested Development, a couple of pieces I’ve made in the last couple of years.



So excited for new episodes!

Well, as will happen to me, my little sofa project has turned into a series that I’m super amused by and hooked on (and for those wondering, I am mending, can walk with the crutches and am starting to put weight back on it bit by bit – please excuse this super run on parenthetical).  What began as me giggling at the difference between penises flaccid and hard, has become a tool for teaching adjectives.

Here’s a picture of an ostrich’s neck, which is okay to show on Facebook, since my work gets flagged and censored, though I find it way more disturbing than stitched bits and bobs.

Hey, meant to say this on May 1st, but you know, I got caught up moaning about my sprain. C’est la vie!

Here's an image FB will not be offended by for preview purposes!

I know we did this back in February when it hit the stands (huh??) but I’m in this month’s issue of Hustler!  What? Hustler? Yeah that’s right you heard me, Hustler… Oh, I see the confusion, I’m not in Hustler, my art is.  I make nudie art, not pose for it (publicly).

And I have to tell you that one of my favorite conversations in my life and that I will treasure all my days was, “Dad, I’m going to be in Hustler!”  “Honey, I’m so proud!”

To reiterate, I am in this month’s issue (Vol. 39, Number 12, May 2013) of Hustler.
