hello studio

i am back in action. so much so that i haven't had time to blog. i've been in studio cooking up lots of new goodies for our terri planty booth at unique la show coming this weekend at the california market center. most exciting is the launch of many new necklace designs. after this weekend i will be sure to post new designs on the online store. until then you will just have to visit the show! and if you can't make this weekend, it is very likely i will be hosting a pop up shop at elephant art space....

ever green

last weekend i had the great pleasure of being in a group show with three other rad artists at monte vista projects. my addition to the space is the large disco ball planter that is suspended and in action, glittering up the portable forest below.


sorry for the time out!

my computer has been undergoing some techy issues. it is finally getting fixed this week! sorry for the lack of posts! after i get her back in a few days its on. and while on the subject of time, check out this brilliant plant alarm clock designed by jason kline. its brilliant! and good looking! read more about it here.


flora fashion

loving this mix of plant action and fashion i found on my friend kelly's tumblr, rise or set. i really should get more creative with my wears. perhaps next time i am on my way out the door to a night of dancing i should pluck some succulents and shove them in my shoes for some extra detail. i am serious. we could all use a little more play and spontaneity in our perspective. :)


cold day

open studios was a success! hannah (my puppy) was my date and she behaved herself amongst the crowd of folks traveling around the halls and rooms of our studio. i met many new faces and reconnected with old friends. but it was COLD. rainy and cold. yesterday was the same. the kind of day that makes you want to stay in bed and ignore the rest of the world (including the pile of dishes)and just be with your loved ones reading a book...


open studios

getting ready for open studios this sunday at elephant art space (aka, where my studio resides). all the artist in residence will have their doors open with projects for viewing. and in our gallery we will have a show by artist dave shulman.
i have lots of new art, new terri planty projects and have really begun to focus on making more terrarium jewelry pieces that involve all kinds of interesting materials. soon i will show that collection off but for the time being a shot of my jewelry make desk in full force.

if you are in the la area on sunday from 5 - 9, stop on by elephant. :)



spotted this good lookin' sculpture on landscape and urbanism. not sure what the story is but i had to share. its amazing what we can do with the materials that are all around us. re address them in new formations, add some thought provoking text, or not and viola - rad interruption in your daily viewing.

a bug's life

i promised photo glory and have not come through - YET. my lifestyle change has really made for less blogging time. but the good news is i am in the studio all the time, making LOTS including a whole new line of jewelry terrariums! very cool stuff.
speaking of jewelry, another fellow artist jewelry making garden crazed girlfriend of mine recently shared her photos of her halloween wears and i gots to say, if i could award the best halloween costume of the year to someone, this would be it! its like her garden is part of the outfit! LOVE!!!
