NY Times Featured Greenpoint Open Studios!

It’s going to be a stellar weekend! More info on GOS here.

I always knew that one day I would be published in the NY Times and it would be an ass photo. Notice it features my newly married name Jen G. Pywell. And they featured the original cute smiley face logo we had that year which was designed by Stephanie Wenzel.
