Become my patron!

I very much appreciate everyone who sends me dryer lint — after all, it’s not like I can go down to the store and buy it. And every year, I thank those who sent me lint by sending out signed limited edition prints.

If you don’t collect lint but would like some prints anyway (or bags, or cups, or other goodies with my artwork), now there’s a way you can support my work and get some fun stuff for as little as $1 a month. Please check out my Patreon page and join!

Hey, Look!

While browsing the Niche Awards web page recently, I noticed that on their page about the competition they show the gallery where the finalists are displayed, and there’s my “Dali in Dryer Lint” prominent.  How nice!

New work!

I’m very happy with my two newest pieces. These were done on consignment for someone who loves foxes and ravens, so they’re not available for sale. Hope you like them! (Click on the pictures to enlarge them)foxes
