amplification

black detail drawing painting teal

I WANT WOMEN'S VOICES AMPLIFIED. SO DO A LOT OF WOMEN LIKE ME. Oooops, did I just yell in all caps? The funny thing is I hit all caps on accident, but then decided to leave it, because that's the point of this blog. amplification Even when we work extra hard, when we shout, when we triple check our work, when we put ourselves out there, still we tend to get dismissed or ignored. Thankfully this topic keeps being researched these days, so that IS something. Then I read an article that reminded me—that even when we do get published,...

handmade sketchbook

Earlier this year I made a sketchbook entirely from scraps of goodies in my studio. The entire book is handmade! I only used collage and I adore how this little book turned out. After living with it in my studio since July 2021 and opening it and adding to it here and there I feel like it is finally ready for its forever home. Might that be your home? Take a look, then decide. Holding this lovely little book in your hands might delight you as much as I found joy while making it!
