Blue Buddha

Artwork

I am part of a writer’s group in SecondLife (virtual reality) and every week we are asked to think about a series of questions. This past week the question was: Literary/artistic pilgrimages – have you ever visited the site of an artist’s home or studio? Does it make a difference to you to see where […]

Art & Anxiety

Artwork

Art has always been a way for me to cope with anxiety. It doesn’t take the anxiety away, necessarily, but it does help give me something else to focus on. When my step father died in 2011 I turned to art. It wasn’t really intentional but I spent a lot of time at home alone […]

These Hands

Artwork

I think a lot about hands. My hands, your hands…animal “hands”. What would we do without them? My gramma was born without a hand. Actually, her left arm ends at her elbow. It’s a genetic defect but when I was a teenager I remember asking her “Gramma, was great gramma on drugs when she had […]

Hope is something we could all use right now and one way I think I might be able to bring some hope is teach people how to connect with their inner self through SoulCollage. SoulCollage has been a powerful way for me to explore and heal many parts of myself and I became a Facilitator […]

Cyanotype Workshop Jax


Artwork

I had the opportunity to teach a cyanotype workshop this month in Jacksonville, FL at CultivateJax. First let me say that Cultivate is an absolutely inspiring and welcoming space and if you are in Jacksonville you must visit! Secondly, this was a super short trip but this was my first time being back in Jacksonville […]

Inspiration Journals


Artwork

A few things inspired me to make journals. One-I’ve been thinking about the journal I’m supposed to be working on through The Sketchpad Project…it’s due February and I’ve had it for almost a year. That sounds very artist-y doesn’t it? (Not doing something until the last minute) Also, click HERE to see new items listed […]

It was my very first time teaching this process to others and I loved it! Feel free to skim through the photos. As part of class, we walked around outside to discuss plants, native […]

Eco-dying


Artwork

I’ve always found eco-dying fascinating and I told myself I’d learn more about it some day. When I stumbled upon (literally) some giant black walnuts on the ground, I immediately knew what I was going to do with them. My first experience with black walnut dye was when I was at Penland last Summer (2018). […]
