You know how your parents keep everything that you make? From the noodle necklace to the funky ornaments they’ve got it boxed up somewhere. My parents are no exception to this rule, perhaps the only difference is that I ended up making a career out of creating, so its a little weird to see value put on the the quirky learning curve of high school and college art projects. Since I’ve been spending a few weeks at my parents house on the east coast this summer, I’ve started to notice just how much of my art my parents have around the house. Here are a few pieces (college friends might recognize some of these oldies!) circa 1997-1998. More to come, Enjoy!
