scrotal curtsy is a poem by Montreal-based musician Steve Howe.
I created art to correspond with the text, then crafted these tiny books.

The busiest day of my life.

Three exhibits featuring my work all occurred at the same time within a block of each other, coincidentally during both the Iowa Arts Festival and the Iowa City First Friday Gallery Walk.
• Textiles women’s clothing store is showing a full array of my paintings and collages for 3 months.
• Iowa Artisans Gallery has a postcard-sized exhibit with a few of my pieces included.
• Blick Art Materials had an employee show, with even more creations from my hands.
