Getting TRASHed at Coachella

I was selected out of hundreds of entries as one of the artists to re-imagine a recycling bin for Coachella! My design, Porg City had to be kid friendly as the bins also head to a school to encourage recycling after the festival. I had a blast painting & it was amazing to see my work featured on the polo fields! 

Global Inheritance collaborates with artists to redesign recycling bins, then integrates them at high visibility events to encourage recycling and provide additional outlets for people to appreciate and interact with artwork. Chosen artists receive and decorate a recycling bin to be displayed at Coachella.

Love: A Group Show - Feb 10th-18th

Los Angeles County Store invited me to participate in a small group show in celebration of art, love, and LA.  Fun fact: the LA County Store is the only shop dedicated exclusively to fine goods made in Los Angeles! 

I'll have a few pieces in the show! Please join me for the opening party on Saturday February 10th between 6-8pm! 

Cheers!

  This week-long celebration of art and love will feature the work of more than a dozen Los Angeles - based artists. Pieces are all 8 inches or smaller, priced at $100 and under, and are available to take home with you at the time of purchase. Treat yourself - or someone special - to the gift of art this Valentine season! A portion of the proceeds will benefit Planned Parenthood.

Recap: Pure Barre MDR

"Nice balls"  

"Jessica--I love your balls!"

"OMG can I take a photo of your balls?"

These are not compliments I've heard before, but I certainly hear them now! I collaborated with Pure Barre Marina Del Rey on some special balls for their studio. The ball is used in every class, between your thighs while you squat and tuck, in your arms while you crunch and reach, and behind your leg while you sculpt your seat. 

Painting a spherical, textured, and rubbery surface was a challenge and a time consuming process but the end results are amazing! The studio owner wanted a Birthday Ball for clients to use on their birthday, a 100 Club Ball for clients to use in their 100th class, a special ball that matched the botanical wallpaper of the studio Botanical Ball, and finally a Location Ball which visiting instructors could use when they dropped into the Marina Del Rey location!

These balls were made to make people feel special and to set the studio apart, adding to the fresh energy that makes this location and their clientele unique! 

Set up examples

Examples from Unique LA 2016 Holiday Market & 2017 Unique LA Summer Market, where I shared a booth with Christina Beck or CBGEMS.
