Featured | Quirk Gallery

Excited to announce that I made a few special knits just for Quirk Gallery over at Quirk Hotel
Definitely a dream to have some pieces of mine grace their beautifully curated collection of goods. 
Head over to check out these OOAK knits as well as some other wonderful unique pieces made by other local designers! Quirk is also an awesome spot for an afternoon drink or early morning coffee stop if you're out and about downtown. Once you hang out in the lobby and gallery you'll pretty much never want to leave.

Featured | Whurk Magazine

I am so very excited and honored to share this with you guys!
I had the hardest time keeping it to myself these past few weeks....
*Insert drumroll here*
I'm featured in the April issue of Whurk Magazine!
Not just that, but the centerfold pin up feature (a different kind of centerfold that is ;))!
How cool is that right? I know. Pretty cool.

For those of you who don't know, Whurk is a free magazine that has monthly issues featuring artists, special events, poetry, photography, music and all kinds of awesome things from people all over Virginia. In fact, when Seth, the editor, emailed me asking if I'd like to be featured, I had just the day before finished reading the latest issue!

If you feel so inclined, you can read it online here or, if you live in Virginia, you can pick up a copy at various coffee shops, art galleries, and other ultra hip/cool places around your town.

Big thanks to Stephen and Seth for featuring me! Love what you guys are doing. Keep up the good work, or... Whurk... as it were (sorry... I couldn't help myself).

P.s. How perfect is it that there are sheep on the cover?
I'm pretending that was on purpose, just for me.
