Cyanotype Workshop Jax

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 […]

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 […]

Cynefin


Artwork

Hi! I haven’t written anything since March because I’ve been moving…to a different state! I’m in Tennessee and I am LOVING IT! It’s beautiful here and I feel like I’m on a different continent. I’m outside every day exploring and taking it all in. I’m finding new plant species, hiking (there are at least 4 […]

Luna Moth-Commission


Artwork

Lots of people on social media comment about how much they love seeing my process. I like to take photos as I create art because I can go back and reference how I created something. This one took a lot of (gross) math.

SoulCollage | Feb. 17, 2019


SoulCollage

I had a fun time this past Sunday hosting SoulCollage in my home for the first time ever! It was fun to prepare for the event by picking fresh flowers, thinking up just the right amount of sweet and savory snacks, digging out my ceramic and wooden trays for display, lighting candles, infusing the air […]
