Working Title is a new show on KQED hosted by Kelly Lynn Jones of Little Paper Planes and Andrew Martin Scott of Neddles & Pens. They interview and visit with Bay Area artists and entrepreneurs, folks that are creating and making their lives in unique and different ways. The conversation isn't just about what inspires them, but also how they define success and make a way for themselves. In the first episode they interview Jay Nelson, an artist and builder I've featured here before. I am thrilled to see more episodes and really glad that Kelly and Andrew are hosting this show; both of them have been committed to the Bay Area arts scene for a long time and have a great perspective on what it means to be a working artist. Check out their first episode below.
A couple of weeks ago I found a wonderful home tour via Refinery 29 of artists Jay Nelson & Rachel Kaye, photographed by Molly DeCoudreaux. They live in the outer Sunset of San Francisco, an underrated neighborhood a bit off the beaten path and close to the beach.
I love how light and airy their home is, but also that it's filled with their art and feels like a real home, not an über staged space like most home tours. After checking out their work, I found that they had also done a residency at JB Blunk, a really special place that I'll save for another day.
This shoe collection looks so much like my own closet I had to post.
