Starting a blog is like opening a brand new journal. (Hear the spine crack as you open it?) Keeping a journal is not new to me. I have a collection of them I have written since I was about nine years old. The purpose of this particular journal is not to share my deepest darkest secrets but to invite you into my studio/workbench/kitchen, basically wherever I create.
I am mostly self-taught with classes peppered here and there. I recently had to write an artist statement and biography for an upcoming show. I hadn't realized until now how much my great grandmother's house and the items in it influence my style. Her house went unchanged since my dad went to visit as a kid. It really was a museum, an art gallery and an antique shop all in one. As a kid, I soaked up every detail.
I look forward to creating new art and sharing it with you.
