I’ve been so influenced by the woven techniques and geometry of Pre-Columbian and current Peruvian artisans, so much so that I’ve translated that inspiration into a new line of wool, felt pillows! The black and white Chan Chan Pillow and Serpent Pillow will be available at the end of March, along with some special pieces coming your way. Hopefully you’re as excited as I am!
The Starmaster, Skiing and Tennis cartridges were originally on display at Giant Robot SF for the video game themed art show, Game Over, in conjunction with GDC. I’m finally parting with them and they’ll be available on my site tomorrow! Stay tuned!
Small cartridges sizes 17″ X 22″
The super cute and energetic, Cleocatra, loves her Pet Teepee! It’s big enough to invite a couple kitty friends over and when she finally gets tired of playing all day, she has a cushy little bed inside her teepee to take a well needed cat nap.
Originally I started making the teepees just for the kitties, but to my surprise all my dog loving friends couldn’t wait to get ahold of them as well! So yes, now I have a Chan Chan Kat and Pallay Dog Teepee designs to chose from. The consensus is, the cats & dogs love their teepees!!
My Pet Teepees are now available on www.snaggs.bigcartel.com!
The teepee comes with a 1″ removable and hand washable bed, made of a soft, Blizzard Fleece material that your cat will love! The comfortable bed is perfectly fitted to the the shape of your teepee, maximizing every square inch so your little furry has plenty of room to not just sleep, but to sprawl out in!
The Cat and Dog Teepees are available in four different color ways: Raven Black, Vermilion, Chestnut and NightGlo (the NightGlo glows in the dark!)
The pet teepees are made of heavyweight, durable canvas that is made to last!
Everything is handmade, screen printed and sewn by me at my Seattle-based studio.
ALSO, the Furry Friend Teepees come with a God’s Eye, Postcard and Button Pack! Each God’s Eye is color-coordinated to your teepee fabric, and hangs from the ceiling of your teepee. Hang it low enough and it will allow for hours of playtime for your kitty! Hang it high enough and it will be purely decorative.
This was by far the largest project I’ve ever worked on, and enjoyed taking on the challenge!
I originally started cutting out the lettering last summer, intending on putting it in a video game themed art show. However I quickly ran out of time and decided to put it off until I some free time to finish it.
A year later, and low and behold, I finally got some time to pick up where I left off , and this mattress-sized cartridge is sitting in my living room finally complete!
4′ X 5′ Vinyl Pitfall Cartridge. 10″ Deep.
Complete with sound box when pushing down on Pitfall Harry’s pocket (game play/ jumping over gators sound!).

Thanks to our little feisty, scraggly neighborhood cat and trying to find a way to keep her warm during the cold nights, I now have a new line of kitty and pup teepees! Now that we’ve made a little teepee for Meows on our front porch, she decided to make the teepee her new home, as well as ours. Yes, she never leaves, and yes, she’s transformed from the “neighborhood bully” to the sweetest ball of fur I’ve ever known. Guess she’s ours now…. :)

Just finished these wooden, garden sculptures in attempts to fill the void where our giant, cedar tree once grew. Somehow I can’t help but think of traffic signs now…
2012 was not only a great year, it also re-ignited my childhood love of Star Wars! It ended with me most recently completing a super special, shiny Darth Vader Soft Figure Case. Vader is heading to it’s new home, Rancho Obi-Wan! I feel so honored for it to be going to such a good home, and to someone who appreciates Star Wars like no other!
This is the first time I’ve worked with patent vinyl, and although it’s ridiculously slippery material to work with, the pay-off is totally worth it. I just hope the new owner can look past my grubby finger-print marks from handling it so much. So, so soft and supple, guh……..
“Rancho Obi-Wan (ROW) is a non-profit Star Wars memorabilia museum on the outskirts of wine country in Sonoma County, California, just a 50-minute drive north of San Francisco. It is an eye-popping, wonder-inducing, interactive experience for fans of the saga of all ages and from all over the world. Recently remodeled, its nearly 9,000 square feet of space houses 35 years of Star Wars treasures from all over the world.”
