Sandbox: Goodbye for Now

Sandbox is a corner of the web dedicated to Iowa City artists working to engage the public in an interactive environment. Find out more here.

This will be my last Sandbox entry as the free studio resident at Public Space One, so I will leave you with a few of my favorite things from this time.

One of the best moments was deciding to stay in my studio after the residency!


Opening my studio during the Intermedia Showcase and interacting with the phenomenal pieces that evening!


Making a site specific, floor tile piece for the Public Space One exhibition and fundraiser, Blue Lava.


Creating recipes inspired by herbs from the Public Space One garden and making fire cider with the Thuggoon Will-Be-Banned Band.


And experimenting with little pieces for an instillation idea, hopefully to be fully realized in the future.

It has been a blast. I hope to see you around. I will still be in my studio at Public Space One and will continue to work and help out at Zenzic Press.

If you ever want to stop by for a cup of tea, send me a line! All my contact information and extra links are on my website at
