KATE CHILKO - Danceurs Illogiques
Kate Chilko is a Brooklyn based life-form who heartily struggles with
the task of writing brief biographical summations. Born in West
Virginia, she studied Creative Writing while nestled in the lukewarm
bosom of Sarah Lawrence College. She is one of an unknown number of
persons who accidentally cultivated a career in the visual arts by
failing at a career in writing. Working in the commercial toy world
for more than eight years, she's had her hands on all the big names in
the pre-school crowd: Spongebob, Spiderman, Ernie and Bert and the
incomparable Dora the Explorer.
For the past two years she has worked on a wide variety of creative
pursuits as a painter, sculptor and designer. On more than one
occasion, she helped produce garbage cans for the King of Saudi
In the fall of 2011, she will dip her first toe into the designer toy
pond, and with great anticipation will watch for any perceptible
Each piece is meticulously hand painted and comes with a beautiful collectors case and signed print. NYCC edition is limited to 8 pieces - 110/each

CARRIE KRUGER - Deep Sea Creep
Carrie Kruger has a Fine Arts in Design degree and
recently moved from Lawrence, Kansas to Los Angeles, California.
She hopes to artistically figure herself out in this new life venue.

and since then has been searching for answers.
"I am just trying to make sense of this world."
I cherish every encounter, everything i step in,
everything i dream about.
To me; it is all I have that makes
me physically here on this planet.
The things i tend to construct are
conglomerates of things i encounter,
step in and dream about.
