the Kilburn Mill Studios contains Spires' print studio, in the south end of New Bedford, MA. 

My studio has occupied 2 different spaces in the building, and has gone through several different interior layouts. I work with Epson 9900, Riso MZ-790, various binding machines, laminators, rotary and board cutters. I have a bedroom and living room set in my studio which allows for product shots and necessary relaxation.


Kilburn Gaslight Mark

Designed in the old gaslight style to pay tribute to the mills' historic past, the mark was also used to advertise the mill's various tenants for an AHA night, a New Bedford art tradition held on Thursdays .

The shirts were screenprinted by B4 printing based in Fairhaven, MA, and can be purchased here.

The toned and stylized version can be purchased through Society6.

A surrealistic digital piece inspired by the mill. A piece of mobile art, it started as a photo that I took of the mill in Snapchat of all places.

It took about 8 different apps to get the elements in place, make the color perfect, and create mood with the correct toning and texture.
