I am performing with The Moon, an audio/visual project created by musician Jeff Schram that incorporates acoustic music, digital manipulation, vocals, and my live visual projections.
I’ve been craving adventure and traveling (as I do nearly everyday of my life!!), and as a result I’ve put together a set that will take you all on a visual journey into magical abstract landscapes, starry nights and secret underwater worlds, all synchronized with Jeff’s musical soundscape.
We will be going on around 7:30pm, but the whole event is from 6-10p and there are dozens of amazing people, performances, visual art, music & drinks to keep you busy throughout! We are very much looking forward to it and to meeting new folks too.

Hey guys! Please be on the look out for The Beat magazine, who have just released their spring issue with a dangerously wonderful article featuring my graphic & performance art. I was first approached by editor and chief Wendy Logan and creative director Andy Liverant when Kodomo and I had performed an audio/visual show together at the Factory Underground last year.
The magazine is dedicated to the food, arts, culture & color of Fairfield County and provides a wide range of articles that profile chefs, restaurants, artists, cultural institutions as well as columns dedicated to wine, dining reviews and music.
I’m very excited to be a featured artist this spring, so please check out the latest issue if you can find it around town, or view it here digitally. Please take the time to “friend” them on Facebook and check out all the great work that they’re doing to bring some flavor into our local area.
Also, please check back here soon for the latest projects that I have in store for spring. This includes a new line of graphic work, some installation video projects, launch of a new hollydanger website and more performances with The Moon. To be continued!
Hope everyone is happy, healthy & enjoying the warm weather.
Warmer weather and sunny days are upon us and I’m getting excited for participating in more craft fairs and events as the weeks roll on. I was reading Etsy for some inspiration this morning and thought it would be fun to answer some questions that were featured when they were portraying one of their artists. So here is a little self-portrait exercise that I decided to put together on life in and out of the studio. Enjoy!
After a week of not sleeping in preparation for my back to back shows Friday & Saturday, I can officially say that the weekend was a success and I had a wonderful time with everyone.
If you missed our performance of the Moon at Goodbye Blue Monday we have a video to share with you of our last song, and only duet, True Love Will Find You in the End. Thanks so much to Hoi Chen for coming out & filming the entire show for us. More videos to come.
A few hours of sleep later after the show, Jeff’s alarm went off at 7:30am. Still a little hazy from a few too many Ommegangs, I realized it was time to head to the studio, unpack my video equipment from the night before and load in all my art, jewelry, dress form, 6ft table & table cloth banner, 2 chairs, speaker, mini dvd player, tshirt supply, print rack & prints, and all the display items into my little car. (Tetris skills came in very handy here!) This was only the second time I had ever exhibited my work outside of studio walls and let me tell you – it is a LOT of work setting up your own booth and relocating it out of the studio! Having accumulated this much stuff makes me want to fulfill my dream even more, of having my very own Danger van one day! I’ve always wanted one for housing all my equipment & artwork, taking long road trips, camping and doing drive by projections! Maybe this year I can make this happen..
Thanks to everyone who made it to both Brooklyn & Bridgeport this weekend. It turned into such a super awesome weekend reunion of friends, and it meant a lot to me to reconnect with everybody, as well as meet new folks in the area.
Gallery 305K plans to host these art markets once a month in their space, so you can expect to see me there again for the next one April 14th. For those of you who couldn’t make it to Bridgeport, here are a couple snapshots from the event. Enjoy!
Hey Guys! Happy almost-spring!!! I hope you are all doing well! Before the week gets too crazy for all of us, I wanted to say hello and to tell you about two fun events going on this week that you might be interested in. The Moon at Goodbye Blue Monday & Danger at the Bridgeport Art Bazaar.
Thanks to everyone who came out to check out our performance at Franklin Street Works last Thursday. We had so much fun performing and sharing our music and visuals with you. Special thanks to Franklin Street Works for hosting us and our friends! Please friend us on The Moon’s facebook page to learn about upcoming events.
For those of you who couldn’t make it out, check out this video taken by Franklin Street Works. This was one of our instrumentals called “Olive”. The photo above was taken by Jackie Alcayaga.
I’m super excited to be invited back and Jeff and I will be once again outfitting the place with 6-7 projectors filling their performance space. I’ve been busy in my studio creating new materials, testing new equipment and getting ready for this epic set-up. Hope to see some of you there. We’ll be working with a number of other visualists that evening and will be VJing for MiniBoone.

I hope everyone is enjoying the very beginnings of spring time! I’m slowly coming out of my own winter hibernation and warming up the creative flow with some new adventures. Most importantly right now, I want to share a performance update with you all that I am greatly looking forward to!
ThisÂ Saturday evening, April 9th, I am excited to announce a truly rare and wonderful performance coming to Norwalk, CT. The musical counterpart to my visuals, Kodomo, is coming up from Brooklyn to perform a 1 hour performance with me, at the Factory Underground gallery & recording studio! I am setting up a multi-projection atmosphere and will be live mixing to his dreamy soundscapes.
Kodomo has been busy working on a new album so you may even get a chance to hear a few new tracks! This is a first time performance for us at the Underground so we hope many of you can come out and enjoy the night with us for a truly special evening.
The gallery will be open and hosting an exhibit called, “TWEET: Music & Words”, a multimedia show from 5:30-9:30PM featuring videos, large scale photography, performance art, monoprints and our live show at 8pm.
The show is free to all those who can make it, and wine & refreshments will be served. The Factory Underground is located at 16 Issac Street in Norwalk, CT. Hope to see you there!
