2018 Goals

Hanging the Pieces of My Show

Content Warning: This post deals with sexual assault. Skip it if you need to. On Monday, October 23, 2017, my mom and I rolled all 21 pieces of my show into Lowe Mill wrapped up in towels. It was overcast, and gusty, and misting slightly. I guess the weather was giving me well wishes to […]

My Upcoming Show: Conversational Sexism

When I started talking with the gallery manager at Lowe Mill last fall about my show, I originally thought I’d do more canvas works in my Modern Icon series since that’s what I had submitted in my proposal originally.

Rounding out 2016, Gearing up for 2017

October brings some pretty excellent things my way. My birthday is at the beginning of the month. (Who doesn’t love a good mystery box from Amazon?)
