I’m cleaning out my studio and selling some mounted pieces from 2011 for cheap! All drawings are watercolor, pen and guoache, mounted on pine with Polyvinyl Adhesive (archival) and ready to hang. Some are slightly warped but still can be hung. The small sheep drawing has light wear on the upper right paper corner. Row […]Read Post ›
I’ve been working on art less than I was this past fall and winter– my love of gardening has been rekindled, and now that we have the space for it, and I’m not pregnant or caring for a newborn, I’ve dived back in. That’s what I’ve been doing while my son’s sleeping during the day– […]Read Post ›
Life with a small kid (and probably a big one, too) means constant change. My son is almost ten months old, and sometimes I feel like it’s been years since my old life. Yes, “old life”, because it truthfully feels like another time. And I was expecting (because I’ve been told a million times “What […]Read Post ›
Lost in the 4 Seasons
While it may seem like I haven’t been making much art, the opposite is true. I’ve actually been in deep on a larger commission. A friend asked me to illustrate the four seasons, as they are experienced here in the Northeastern US. The composition is around 22″ x 28″, which for a watercolor drawing (and […]Read Post ›
The Legend of Standing Rock
Sometimes I wish my family was wealthy, if only to give our money to causes that I believe are important. Right now, we are just squeezing by, and even so, I try to donate what we can (money and time) to local community groups and sometimes larger organizations. As someone who makes things, I can […]Read Post ›

Lots of work goes into being a Mom, apparently, and I’ve also been working on a large commission in all my spare time. As promised — I have a Cyber […]Read Post ›

Working In Monochrome
I keep reading and hearing things about how babies develop routines after a few months, and mothers go back to work, or work from home, or really just resume some kind of normalcy in their lives. I haven’t had that experience yet. Our son has had a three-week long sleep regression, which means he wakes […]Read Post ›
Yayoi Kusama in Hey Lady!
I recently submitted an illustration I made of Yayoi Kusama to the latest issue of Regina Schilling‘s Hey Lady! zine. I haven’t submitted anything anywhere in a long time, but when I saw there was a whole zine that would be dedicated to Kusama and her work, I got to drawing right away. The pieces […]Read Post ›
Bowie the Cat
My friend Jusania asked me to make a posthumous portrait of her cat, Bowie. She’d named him Bowie because he had two different colored eyes. He passed away the same date as David Bowie, too, only six years earlier. My portrait has a very Ziggy Stardust-inspired background. However, it’s also a comment on the indescribable […]Read Post ›
