This is Jakob Hostetter. He is an amazing artist from New York City and a very good friend of mine. He recently made a very beautiful quick sketch of me which is to the right of his portrait the day after my birthday, I hope I get to keep it.
Here is a link to some of his work:http://www.flickr.com/photos/openeverysense

Images from the final performance of “Couturemonials” by Ladyk Fever and Mary A. Valverde. This collaboration explores and illuminates the idea of the domestic violence survivor.
The event took place on October 7th, 2012 as part of the Art in Odd Places festival and I was lucky enough to have met these amazing women. Not only are they artists, but they are moms and we have much in common.
I look forward to collaborating with them and exploring how much further we can take this.
