I showed at a local art show, Renewal, in 2008 and 2009.
In 2008, I showed "Frida Meets Day of the Dead" which lovingly resides in my living room. She was my first furniture piece and spurred my upcycling.
It's totally trippy to walk around and admire work and then realize your work is among those that you admire. It's also trippy to see people looking at your work and hearing what they have to say...
I was stoked and proud to show.
