The Gate to Imagination Collection

I treat my Etsy shop as my own private gallery space. I present a new curated collection of my work each quarter featuring 10-20 original works of art priced between $20-200. Some will be brand new and some will be older, but all will fit within the chosen theme. These sixteen works on paper and […]

Season of Habit flip through

Finishing this journal was very so good! I started it in a flurry and then trailed off working on it while I dedicated all my energies to the Sand and Sea and Sky collection. After I finished the collection, I moved into Year End Review and 2020 Planning. And then I rested for a bit. […]

Well hello there, 2020

Another year zooming by me. I remember from being small my grandma talking about how fast the years go by as you get older. I feel that a whole lot this year. In November and December I make space for myself to do recap of the previous year and plan for the coming year. My […]

Sand and Sea and Sky Collection

Sand and Sea and Sky Collection

Listening to the gentle swish of the surf. Feeling the breeze ruffle your hair. Sifting the sand between your toes. Nothing feels like standing on the edge of the sea. I’ve added a bit of magic to our favorite beach trips with hidden creatures, fanciful hide-a-ways, or impenetrable castles. See if you can spot the […]

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’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 […]
