“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.

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.

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...
