Sheldon Remains is a USC Graduate Thesis film from Director/Writer Corbin Frost. “Sheldon Remains is a delightfully desperate film about the late coming-of-age of a logger and mama’s boy. Stuck under the thumb of his over-bearing mother, Sheldon Barrett spends his days in the woods and his nights self-medicating and accompanying her on dates.” Shot [...]

Sheldon Remains is a USC Graduate Thesis film from Director/Writer Corbin Frost.
“Sheldon Remains is a delightfully desperate film about the late coming-of-age of a logger and mama’s boy. Stuck under the thumb of his over-bearing mother, Sheldon Barrett spends his days in the woods and his nights self-medicating and accompanying her on dates.”
Shot in LA and Forks, WA, I was brought on as the Washington state Art Director and Costumer.
One of the scenes calls for Sheldon to make boats during his walk in the woods. I created boats using twigs and vines.
How much fun would it be to make a retro music video à la Venus in Furs meets Faster, Faster Pussycat! Kill! Kill!? Well, that is how much fun it was to be a part of Prom Queen’s This Town Ain’t Big Enough video shoot. She has a look that is all her own, unique lyrics combined with a voice that is reminiscent of Nancy Sinatra or Loretta Lynn.
Sourcing set dressing, props and wardrobe as well as painting an acoustic guitar fit for a Prom Queen was as delightful as working with the artist herself.

What do you do with the returned remnants of a former life? You could burn them. Throw them away. Place them in the recycling bin. Or you can make something new. The later is my choice and this is a project that I have been working out in my mind for a few years. I had some previously misused canvases and so, I finally am getting to work on this.
The finished piece will be comprised of 4 canvases (2 square and 2 rectangular) and measure 42 x 48 inches

Whether you have forgotten to bring your shopping bags or you just don’t have any – most people have been handed those plastic single-use bags. I’ve been holding on to mine for years – never knowing what to do with them. Sometimes they are used as wrapping or padding when we move. Mostly, they just sit.
I was inspired one day to try making something beautiful and reusable out of them. Flowers are what came to mind and the results were surprising. I wear them as a pin to hold a scarf together or as a decoration in my hair.
The Princess was inspired by the ocean. At this point she is an empty shell of a being and her dress is symbolic of that. The fabrics (up-cycled cottons and cheesecloth) are hand-dyed and painted and embellished with hand beading and interwoven satin threads and organza ribbon. The foundation of the dress is a damaged prom dress – though no part of it is visible, it serves as a great canvas on which all the materials are layered.
“Red Carpet” was the theme for my step-daughter’s senior prom. Together, we designed a beautiful high waist, column gown fit for…well, the red carpet. Wine red satin and chiffon with beaded lace appliques on a ruched bodice. Could not for the life of me get my rolled hem foot to work, so I did a rather time-consuming and meticulous baby hem on all the fabric layers – so worth it! The biggest challenge…keeping my cats away from the fabric.
What do you do when you want to show how a customer service-oriented, local retailer measures up to a big box corporate competitor? You simply put them side-by-side and let them do the talking. Now, how exactly do you show that big box store without pointing fingers? You put him in a big box! This is a custom costume created for Dunn Lumber’s new commercial campaign.
