Space Lodge Gig

I am in a band called Space Lodge. We had a gig at our Farewell San Francisco party on Saturday.

I sing, Daniel Lyon is on the keyboards, Matthew Bice on base, Drew Skillman on guitar and my husband, Tyler Hurd is on the Drums.

Moving to New York – Bye Studio

I cleared out my studio a couple of days ago because my husband and I are in the process of moving from San Francisco to New York.

Tyler will work freelance in 3D media, amongst other things, and I will be seeking out art teaching positions while working on my art.

Bye bye, 3rd. Street studio…

Breaking My Spell on Tv

On Friday the 19th, a couple of days before the performance, Michelle gave a Tv interview to talk about Breaking My Spell. You can see footage from the photo shoot that she was doing that day with photographer Oddvar Örn Hjartarson.

She appeared on the after-news-special Kastljos on the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service Tv channel.

Here is the clip.

Breaking My Spell Was a Success!

The performance was a success and a great point of pride for me and the Art Posse.

On Reykjavik Culture Night Michelle came in last in the Reykjavik Half Marathon, as she had planned, after six and a half hours of walking.

I will upload more photos and information soon, but for now let me just say:

YES!

The Spell is Broken!
