Cyanotype Mobile


Artwork

I’ve been doing a lot of quiet contemplation lately. 2020 taught me-not only is it okay to slow down-but it’s mandatory for the sake of my mental health. Over the past year I have spent time collecting photos, pressing plants, and learning how to give myself a break. Part of giving myself a break means […]

Ferns On Your Ears

Ferns that hang from trees can now hang from our ears! Here’s the story of this awesome collaboration of two bad ass women!

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 […]
