"People see what they want to see. And in most cases, what they are told to see." - The Night Circus. This piece was so much fun to create! My friend, Miranda, challenged me to make something using her image of a tight rope walker. I had some circus ephemera laying around and had been looking … Continue reading Night Circus
New Exhibition, New Art!
Next week, I'll be moving my art from the Snoqualmie City Hall over to Sigillo Cellars! I've been working on a few new pieces that will be on display. Here is a sneak-peak at my latest. It's a work-in-progress, and I'm very excited about where it's headed. I'll be showing the month of October at … Continue reading New Exhibition, New Art!
My newest completed piece: Follow Your Bliss - Dive Deep. This is my first time working mixed media on canvas instead of paper and I really enjoyed it. I'll definitely be doing a few more like this. Working on a larger area was different and presented new challenges. The only real downside is I can't … Continue reading Dive Deep

To Horn In Or Not?
My journal is now complete. Totally finished. It's a bittersweet feeling, but I have to say, I'm glad it ended on this note. One of my favorite pages in my journal is the one here, on the left side of the image. It's titled, "Good Friends Feed Your Soul." It was a lot of … Continue reading To Horn In Or Not?
I was driving home the other day, letting my mind relax and wander over my week, when this question struck me: How important is it to be right? It's funny what your mind will tell you when you give it a chance to talk. I pondered the idea... Being right can be satisfying - I … Continue reading Being Right
Variations on a Theme
A few weeks ago, I did a sketch of this lady of the sea. I've played around with her a bit, trying out a new water color palette and paper. I'm also working on another rendition of this lady in one of my journals. Have ideas about her story? Post them below 🙂

I find that as I write more and more death announcements (part … Continue reading Happy Birthday, Miranda!
