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 […]

Trusting Myself as an Artist

One of my new favorite things that I get to do at Get Messy is interview our creative team. Two weeks ago I did my second interview this year with Divyam Chaya Bernstein who is a 2018 Mess Maker for Get Messy. I’ve know Divsy, as she’s called on Instagram, for about two years and […]

Weekly Recap: February 5-18, 2017: On Being Sick

Somehow I managed to go on a cruise with my friends, get the flu, and then lose a week. The cruise was amazing! The flu not so much. I spent multiple days where I had a very short loop of couch to soup to bed to I need more tissues. I napped on the couch […]

What’s Next?

Each year during the week of Thanksgiving my husband’s family gathers at the beach. We walk in the water, play games, eat all the carbs, and watch as our children run feral for the week. It’s also a time when my thoughts turn to the next year of work. As I look back over 2017, […]

I started getting Stitch Fix not too long ago and one of the ways you can communicate with your stylist is […]

Working in a Series

A few weeks ago I ran a giveaway on instagram. The giveaway entry fee was for people to tell me things they’d love to learn from me. I’ll admit it was a sneaky way for me to gather ideas to blog about. One of the things someone asked about was about working in series and […]

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 […]

Posted on Oct 19, 2017 in Blog

Someone asked me the other day on Instagram how I’d made art my career. If you are looking at my Instagram feed or this blog, it certainly looks like art is my career. I show up everyday and make things: check. I have a studio/office: check. I’ve got a show opening in a few weeks: […]
