You know what? My work last week was awesome.

The push and pull of posting work online is that there is the feeling that greater intrinsic value is assigned to work that gets more likes. Even as I know this not true in the least, I fall under the spell of likes sometimes anyway. Last week was no exception. I posted some real bangers […]

Why do I art journal?

Why do I art journal?

A friend asked me this question on Facebook last week and I loved it so much I wanted to share it, and my response (which I’ve expanded with pics and additional thoughts), here. I have a question about this type of art, and trying to understand it better. In my head, art is something that […]

Getting Ready for my Lowe Mill Show

Getting ready for an art show during a pandemic is something else. It is a place to magnify all of the uncertainties of the time and at the same time remind me what is most important. I spent the first few weeks not working on the show pieces. I was just trying to keep my […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
