The House Paint Series is a collection of painting experiments made exclusively out of donated and mis-tinted house paint. Inspired by this ever-present home improvement material, I am committed to creating 100 paintings over the next year exploring my connection to this medium. These experiments are almost completely unrestricted, utilizing a wide variety of tools to apply the paint and additional materials to expand the content and context of the works. Below you will find the first 18 pieces in the House Paint Series, all completed in 2022.

Switch was made knowing that it only needed to stay together for one photograph. It was artfully taped to a shelf of glass that was held up against my studio wall with a wrapping paper container and two hardcover Harry Potters. Transforming that sculpture into something permanent that could be sold, shipped and displayed took a bit of finagling. I commissioned a custom plexiglass shelf to replace the DIY sheet of glass I used. And then I bought a lot of glue in order to test which one was the right one to secure the houses with. Gluing anything to plexi can be a challenge, as most glues peel ..read more

Switch by A.S. King, cover art by Nicki Crock and Samira Iravani When Penguin Random House reached out to me in July of this year, asking if I would be interested in creating the artwork for a new YA novel, I was 1.

(Seriously, as a book geek, this was Grade A Level Excitement. Any other writers out there that need a beta reader, hit me up!!)
