Last night was my first Anxieteam experience- the veggie loving, mask wearing, (semi)-coordinating dance moving, synth and ukulele collaboration of artists Jon Burgerman and Jim Avignon.

I’ve recently started working with ReBaroque, fine artists Rebecca Paul and Mikal Hameed’s product line. Using all recycled and sustainable materials such as vintage frames and fabrics with hand detailing, the pair have created a line of design meets art meets functional sound panels. Each sound panel functions as a piece of art, to be hung in your living...
