hello! it's 2014 how did that happen? i've been terrible about updating this blog with all the things i've been making but i've been a busy bee. i will try to be better. here is a painting i made in 2013 that was not of a lady. the original is sold, but you can find prints in my etsy shop if you fancy it. i will be adding more prints soon from my most recent show. happy new year! xo

Tonight is the Capitol Hill Block Party Visual Arts Reception at Chihuly Garden and Glass here in Seattle. Excited to have collaborated with Kristien Ziska on some large format pieces that are part of our ongoing series PORTENT. Above is one of mine that will be at the kick off tonight. Visit the block party this weekend to see all the great visual art that Laurie Kearney of Ghost Gallery has worked hard to bring to CHBP! As always, thank you for looking.
this was a day back in november that i spent in portland. on this day i hung with my bestie since i was 12 (top photo), got a rose tattooed on my hip (in the city of roses) by old rad friend alice, and saw the boss for the second time in 2012. the kind of day dreams are made of.
random snaps from the last few months. me and dear K on new year's eve.
K and shea, who is back for good!
the truth is i have still been taking film photos, not as much as i used to but it's still happening. i get it developed and the envelopes just pile up. i have a real unenthusiasm for sharing as much as i used to, or more specifically going through the film once it's become an actual thing i can touch in my hands. i am working on this.
halo contemplates turning 12. TWELVE. this happened in december and i don't think i still have quite grasped it. or the way time moves and bends and children grow. i don't think i ever will. but boy do i sure love him.
Tonight is the opening of the 2013 group print show at ghost gallery! 5-830pm, and the show is up for a month. My four prints above will be there, along with some smaller additions, and so will I. Hope to see you there! xo
happy solstice! i know i haven't spent much time in this space lately but i am planning on putting more energy into this blog again, and documenting my paintings + photos in the new year. you know, if the world doesn't end. happy holidays! xo
