'Warp Weighted Loom (2016)' by Janis Stemmermann on view at Russell Janis 

As 2016 comes to a close, I would like to take the time to thank and also highlight those artists + designers who generously shared their work and creative studio time with me during the past year. 

In an era where 'sharing' is often fueled by the instant gratification of social media tools, it has been fortifying and truly energizing for me to make direct contact with individuals whose work I admire and whose projects I feel are vital to the art + environment + materials dialogue.

Even though there are many others who have helped to shape my artistic thinking during 2016, I offer this sampling in gratitude for the hard work and devotion to unique fabrication methods sustained by these unique creatives.
