Beyond elated to have an exclusive collection of prints now available at one of my favorite shops, San Francisco's Little Paper Planes. Working with Kelly Lynn Jones, LPP founder, and her team has been wonderful and while I have been approached several times about translating my original works into prints, I never even remotely considered it until Kelly sent me an email outlining their Artist of the Month print project.
Little Paper Planes is a company founded in December of 2004 by Kelly Lynn Jones and started off initially as an online shop. With this shop Jones sought to create a platform from which she and her friends, who had just graduated from art school, could present and sell their work to a wider audience. However, as the number of artist-participants grew over time, it became clear that Little Paper Planes had grown up to become a broad-ranging community, composed of both the circle of artists themselves, as well the people who love and support their art. It seemed the natural progression of this growing inertia was to facilitate dialogues and awareness around Contemporary art between both the artists and public alike.
Little Paper Planes assists artists in their careers through print editions, publishing, curatorial and licensing projects. As of May 2013, LPP opened a physical location in San Francisco which has enabled the company to provide more opportunities in the space including lectures, events, exhibitions and workshops. With the new space LPP started LPP+ Residency which functions as a rotating work space for a diverse group of artists, designers, collectives, and curators to engage with the public.
I have long lusted after their diverse inventory and incredible roster of artists and am proud to be representing the month of June! Check out their shop online or in person and collect a print or two. They are all so affordable why not make it three! Oh, and I did an interview with Maggie Haas, LPP Featured Artist Editor and San Francisco-based artist, that dives into some of my recent revelations on my practice.
