Most of my work has two contrasting components, the silliness or humor of the subject matter, and the labor of execution. My subject matter tends to be things that I find funny or scenes with funny stories behind them, but my process for making my work is almost always tedious, meticulous, and time consuming. Julia Olsgaard, Artist..
