“Uncertainty.

Fear.

Doubt.

Is this my fault?

Does it count if I don't remember it?

Does it count if I didn't say no?

Of course, it isn't my fault. I know it isn't-- whatever "it" is.

What d...

When I started "Voices of Vulnerability: A Chronicle of Casual Misogyny" I knew I couldn't be genuine or give a voice to others without sharing my story. It was actually the second painting I worked on. I planned on painting an abstract hand print, using colors in a br...

Easily my most emotional painting to date, I feel like it swallowed me whole. This 36x36 oil on canvas was an emotionally exhausting piece to finish. I feel like I have so much to say about this painting. I don’t really know where to begin. So, I suppose I’ll start at...

I am writing this from my new living room in Worcester, MA. I think its pronounced "Woosta" but I'm honestly not entirely sure.

When I last left you, I was picking up steam on projects and events in Louisville. I felt like I was finally gaining some traction: attending...

When I saw all of the Me toos popping up all over social media, I didn't think I would be surprised. I was. It seemed every woman I know posted Me too. I knew it was common. I know 5 women very closely that have been sexually abused, but there are so many more. It made...

So, I'd imagine you've seen one of the million posts this September about the 30 in 30 challenge I did with Keep Jessica Wild. For those of you who haven't seen or just missed what it was, I painted 30 paintings in 30 days. The goal was to paint one painting a day, but...

When I started this challenge, I knew it was a big commitment and would be difficult. 30 Paintings in 30 Days is a lot. I knew my already precious time would be further consumed, and I had a vague idea about how it could push me creatively. I thought it might push me t...

I am not where I thought I would be. When I decided to close my shop for the summer, I thought, come September 1st, I would be settled into a new home, new studio, and new family. What a happy little picture with a neat little bow tied around it. I thought that being 8...

The last month has been a whirlwind to say the least. I think moving across the country would throw anyone off for a bit, but doing it 8 months pregnant adds a whole extra layer of disorienting.
So, on top of temporarily moving in with my parents, I've had to find a new...
