curating

Handiwork

The Fall Fair that I curated took place on Sunday. It was not as Fall-en as I’d hoped, more like just barely tetering toward cooler at 101 degrees. I wore soft green in an attempt to chivvy the season along. It did not work. Never mind the heat though, even that could not distract from […]

A taste of things to come

Fall Fair

I am orchestrating another collision of craft and coffee. On 11th September, Caffe Medici will be filled with the Etsy pop-up shops of some of the boldest-rarest-brilliant local artists and vintage collectors. Drink and see beautiful things– come and join us. (Not an accurate representation of fall in Austin but a pining, wishful one. Sniff.)

May Day: Happy Day

May Day went swimmingly, thanks to the brilliance of the vendors, the generosity of our hosts Caffe Medici and of course, everyone who came out. Thank you!

Brilliant, quirky, and damn fine […]

Pencil it in! Embroider it on your t-shirt! Tattoo it on your face!

I’m busy organising an Art, Craft & Vintage Spring Fair. It’s happening during SXSW and so if you’re in town for that, come and find some Austin treasure. There are wonderful local artists, crafters and vintage-fashionistas taking part and as for the coffee… well, it’s *the* best in Austin and boy, are they picky about […]

Currently showing at JP’s Java…

I have started curating the art shows at a local coffee house called JP’s Java. I’m very pleased that this month and next month Shaylind Standing is showing her work:
