So I started this blog about a year ago... this is my first post! I'm honestly not quite sure why I'm doing it other than I've wanted to for awhile now. Maybe it's to help me find my voice. I've never really thought I had anything good to say; or at least that anyone would want to listen to. Even if that is the case, the beauty of blogging is that you don't have to keep reading if you do not want to!

Part of my inspiration comes from my best friend who has been blogging awhile now. We met randomly through some mutually friends at a stitch and bitch. That was about 5 (4?) years ago. Our lives twisted and turned-- she had a baby, I met the love of my life. Last year I move 1500 miles away to go to graduate school. We haven't really seen much of one another but each week or so she posts these amazing things and I get a little inspired... or at least stop feeling sorry for myself!

Another reason for doing this is to share my art. I was posting quite regularly on Facebook but found that it is not the best forum for that. Instead of getting critical feedback I got "I like it." Not that I am objecting, that is nice too! But I am seeking a place to post works in progress and let you comment with sincerity. You might hate what I post, or wish it was a different color; you might love it and want to hang it above your couch. Both are okay for me, but make sure you tell me!

So with that, here is one of the prints that I'm working on:

I waiver between making gigunda, ridiculously large prints (this one is 10ft!) and smaller works that are more layered and controlled. My eventual goal is for the large ones to have the same layered feel and soft atmospheric qualities that the small ones possess. Here are a few examples of those:


  1. I like it!

    haha. Just kidding. Sort of. :-) Yay for blogging.

  2. With the exception of the bottom one, those are all really horrible photographs. Note to self: learn to take better photos and then resize them properly!
