I was born and raised in beautiful BK and have been a music maker for most of my life. In 2013, I took a screen printing workshop with Fred DiMeglio of Man v Ink and a whole new world opened up for me. The first time I lifted the screen and saw my print I was hooked and the seeds of Brooklyn Mojo were planted. Brooklyn Mojo has sprouted into my “visual” music.
I love textiles, always have, always will. Getting down and dirty with screens, inks, carving blocks and fabric brings me joy! My love of hand-printed textiles, especially kitchen towels, brings a touch of whimsy or a pop of color to my everyday living. I can’t resist the allure of a new kitchen towel. They’re like catnip!
I often begin my designs by sketching, paper cutting or using Rubylith masking film to create a pattern. After a design is finished, I head over to Shoestring Press to prepare my screens for printing. I work out of my home studio where I use water-based inks to screen print or block print onto 100% cotton textiles.
