This company has an amazing philosophy:
Art In The Age of Mechanical Reproduction firmly believes in empowering artists producing high quality work marked by fine craft and intellectual rigor. We do so by applying the fruits of such labors to the cultural forms of everyday life, granting those who wish to engage the opportunity to do so in his/her own environment. Rather than exist at a distance in the white cube of the gallery space, we weave our offerings into the collective surface of myriad personal contexts. In this troubling epoch of industrial commodification, standardization of reproduction, and fomentation of a society of shallow spectacle, Art In The Age issues a challenge and rally cry. We fight fire with fire, subsuming the onslaught of watered down facsimiles and inaccessible displays with thought-provoking products of real cultural capital
In June, I’m heading down the states to go on a gypsy adventure with my partner in adventure and business, David. Our trip will involve craft shows, selling vintage clothing on the sidewalks, and ice cream scoops on the beach. While we’re down there, we’ll be trying out some Root by the campfire. What is Root, you ask? It’s the delicious sounding booze made by Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction.
Check out this ingredient list: Birch bark, smoked black tea, sugarcane, orange and lemon peel, allspice, anise, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom, and nutmeg.
It sounds like the most magical thing ever.

One of the latest projects I have been doing is embroidering on my collection of vintage postcards. I’ve been selling them for $10 each at craft shows and will be posting them on etsy sometime in the near future.
here are some of my favourites:
