Launching Kid Lab

After an immensely fun experience creating a giant coral reef at Marbles Kids Museum, I decided to extend the creative hooligans and turn my home studio into a kids playspace!  Now, I'm tickled pink to announce the official launch of KID LAB - a kid's studio designed for loads of tinkering, exploring and making plenty of messes!  Have munchkins who might enjoy an art class?  Know a nanny or caregiver who should know about this new kids space in Raleigh?  Help me spread the word!  Classes are intentionally small, so be sure to sign up soon to reserve your spot.  Check it out here-  And follow the fun on Instagram @newbyart or #kidlabraleighKid Lab  

Spring artist residency at Marbles

The cat's outta the bag!  I've been selected as the Spring 2015 artist in residence at Marbles kids museum in downtown Raleigh!  Now through the end of May, I'll be working with the Marbles staff to design and make a large-scale coral reef made primarily from upcycled materials and wax.  We'll also be designing some workshops for kids to come and help me make it.  Kids + art + wax = epic fun! Here's a sneak peek into my studio and some early prototypes:
