where theater meets magazine production

hearthOn the surface, the fact that I went to school for theater doesn’t seem related to my current role as art director at Mothering. Except that both involve something I really enjoy: creating illusion. Building sets, creating postures and identities and costumes and mood are not all that different from trying to evoke a sense of coziness and comfort when shooting a bowl of soup in the office.

Photo of my annual attempt to create the illusion of a fireplace at my house. (I come by this inclination naturally: When I was little, in the days before my folks had a fireplace, my mom created this same kind of bookcase covering every December, and we kids loved it.)
