Video of a Season of Habit Journal Spread

Some set up for this video. I didn’t add music because I hate trying to find royalty-free music for the Utubes. So please add your own. I listened to Lizzo turned up to eleventy-eleven the whole time so that’s a good option. Or if Lizzo is just too much for you, you pick your own […]

How to interact with abstract art (and by extension me)

For a long time I thought that people don’t like the art I make. Sit with that for a minute. I’m not trying to turn this into a pity party, since I get to do what I absolutely love with my whole heart every day, but I also want you to know going into this […]

Junk Journal Flip Through

I started this journal in 2018 and then sorta forgot about it for a while. I found it again recently and decided to finish it up. It was made from two junk mail catalogs sewed together on my sewing machine and frankly, the paper was atrocious to work on. I had primed the pages with […]

Finishing The 100 Day Project 2019

I finished another 100 Day Project! Yay for finishing a thing! The reality is though that finishing this year was a bit of a slog. I never got into the spirit of this “mostly neutral” project that I picked. It showed in what I made and it showed in the responses I got. I wasn’t […]

I won’t get tired

I won’t get tired

I’ve spent a lot of time with my fear. I call it by different names. Sometimes it looks like working on a different project. Sometimes it looks like cleaning up my studio space. Sometimes it looks like sitting on the couch watching tv and crocheting. Sometimes it looks like me spending too much time on […]

Leaving a Mark

Sometimes things take a long time to germinate. This pieces are about that process. In May 2017, I was talking with my friend Divyam and we wanted to explore using an earth tone palette since neither of us where particularly drawn to brown. I broke out all my siennas and umbers. She and I had […]

Well that was a weird month

I realized sort of all at once this past month that my whole creative life wasn’t working for me anymore. I’ve been hustling for so long that I couldn’t see that I’d drifted far, far off course. After an anxious couple of weeks, I realized I needed desperately to reprioritize and cut some things from […]
