Between Freedom and Responsibility

Why do we associate irresponsibility with creativity? Is there any merit to this association? Or are we devaluing something vitally important? These questions are ones I ask myself a lot. My masters degree research was related to these questions, but these are not just research questions, they are life questions.

Work in Progress

Art is still long, and life is no less fleeting. My husband and I have come through a long difficult journey in the last few years. We cared for his parents and my dad in hospice, lost them along with another beloved family member who passed unexpectedly. And in the midst of our losses, we also moved from our home of 11 years for me, and 30+ years for Craig. It has been a good move, but change nonetheless, and change takes adjustment.

Confessions of a Barefoot Shoemaker

"You're the shoemaker with no shoes!" - My Mom. It's been just over a year since I got this domain, and put together a basic "placeholder" website. It's been a fun and adventurous year! I've worked on several online store projects for artist friends, as well building a nonprofit site from the ground up.  I have several other projects ready to start soon.  All for causes or people I really believe in.  It has been a professionally rewarding and  delightful year!

Carving Out a Life for Myself

Nearly two years ago now, I left my job in the nonprofit sector. When I left, I was unwell, and had been unwell for months. As I slowly regained my health, I began to consider what kind of life I wanted. I knew art must be a part of it. I knew time for reflection and writing had to be a part, even if I was "just" writing in my journal.
