Thirteenth Story, interview with Boldfacers

by Jaye of Thirteenth Story

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Lisa Pierpont, the founder and editor-in-chief of As they describe it, Boldfacers is a weekly publication and website dedicated to uncovering Boston's up-and-comers from all walks of life.

It was a real treat to work with Eric Levin (a very talented photographer) and Ian Travis Barnard (an excellent videographer). Having never had this sort of attention, I was grateful for their ease and humor during the photo and video shoot.

The timing of this was perfect, for I had just left my full-time job to focus more on my artwork. Prepping for this interview forced me to step back and really look at my body of work and be able to determine where my energies are best spent in the next couple years. There are some very specific projects I am working on right now (like the first FIN book), but I am also doing more projects and shows that celebrate handmade art and local artists. The spirit behind handmade is so important to me, and something that drives me to do more and improve with each piece.

Check out the interview here.
