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


Artwork

Ferns that hang from trees can now hang from our ears! Here’s the story of this awesome collaboration of two bad ass women! Amber (@gingermadeartisan) and I met in Jacksonville, FL when we both lived there in 2013. Neither of us live in Jax anymore but we’ve followed each other on Instagram for years and […]

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 […]

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 […]

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). […]

Makers Faire


Artwork

I had the pleasure of attending the Maker’s Faire this past weekend in Jonesborough, TN. You may be wondering how I learned about it and why I traveled 3 1/2 to get there, but that’s easy. Before we moved to TN we did a lot of research and Johnson City is one of the places […]
