My work was featured in Guardian!

I worked on a medieval-inspired wine label for Porter Family Vineyards, Napa, CA. Barre Azure is a Bordeaux blend incorporating the five traditional grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. 

Barre Azure (Blue Bars) refers to the coat of arms of Adam de Port, Porter’s family distant medieval relative.

Cuddle
While I was warm with mild guilt over wasting my time
While my hands, head and legs became puzzles that snugly fit together
A girl hung herself 
Air trapped in her lips
In her brittle, locked eyelids.

Cuddle

While I was warm with mild guilt over wasting my time

While my hands, head and legs became puzzles that snugly fit together

A girl hung herself 

Air trapped in her lips

In her brittle, locked eyelids.
