shop update!

I will be adding some originals as well as new prints to my etsy shop next week!  If you’re interested stop by next Wednesday to see the new work.  Here are a few of the pieces that I will be adding.



do over

Sometimes you have to go back to move forward.  I pretty regularly scrap or start over a painting.  The piece below had a lot of work into it (and alot of paint and layers), but it wasn’t working.  I think this is the third layer of painting on this canvas, fingers crossed this time it’s a keeper!  Below is mid white-out and ready to begin again.



new site

I (finally!) updated my website.  This has been on my to do for forever.  Take a look, if you’re interested!



happy friday

I’m definitely feeling the rush spring air brings.  After a sketchy week of a husband out of the country and a house full of sickies, the blue skies are very welcome.  Have a wonderful weekend!


1. blue skies for days  2.  a conrner of a new painting  3.  did i mention the blue skies?


new little prints

I just got a new set of little prints back from Artifact Uprising and I’m so thrilled with them I had to share!  I’ve never printed the floodline pieces before and they turned out really well.  I think I will have to start offering a set of them in the shop.  For now, one will be tucked in with all orders.



palette + painting


I usually am working on several paintings at once, moving between them.  Those paintings are typically part of a series and often tend towards the same color pallette.  I am really loving green right now, as you can see.



good mail day

Well today was a rather epic mail day.  The book ‘Creative Block’ by Danielle Krysa arrived.  The concept is a brilliant one and it is just so beautifully executed.   ‘Creative Block’ is “a contemporary art book filled not only with inspiring images, but also inspiring words, advice, and tips to help amateurs and professionals alike, find their way through those days when the ideas just won’t come.”  I am so honored to be included in it and can’t wait to sit down with a big glass of wine and read through.

snow day(s)


Snow in Portland is fairly rare and fleeting, but last week we got the real thing.  The kids got 3 days off of school (5day weekend) and we got our fill of sledding, urban skiing and snow ball fights.   Now back to work and on to Spring!


this. that. the other

Things I’ve been up to since I was last here:

1.  started reading 5 books simultaneously (I do not recommend), so far I have finished 0

2.  cleaned my studio (I can see the floor!)

3.  had farewell drinks with a dear friend

4.  played this game with friends (cried I laughed so hard and not just due to all the sidecars I had consumed)

5.  went for a new years hike here

6.  started daydreaming/planning for our summer vacation

7.  made a mile long to do list…

8.  plotted all the paintings I want to do NOW.  (see no. 7)


In winter

It snowed here last night (enough of a rarity here that it is always exciting).  So I decided to finally finish and share some skater paintings I’ve been working on for forever.  I just love the stark minimalist quality of winter and decided to also invert several of the pieces, so both will be available.  I hope to have them available next week.   Happy Friday and stay warm!
