these texts are an archive of my life in the San Francisco Bay Area from march 2007 - march 2015. it stands as a record of close to a decade of my life, charting the struggles i faced as an artist, daughter, and lover. messy and chaotic at times, eloquent and poetic at others, these texts are an index i am proud of. it was here in this electric box that i learned how to be honest about my experiences and the person i needed to become. it was here that i first learned the truism that words make the world and how to trust such a beautiful, rife, hard fact.

thank you for meeting me here in such tall grass.


my artist website is here.

admiring...

thwarted by the rain, i've spent all day inside working on paintings and thinking about the artist statement re-write i need to do... again. the great/horrible thing about artist statements is that they're never really done. as the work grows and changes, so does the statement which means i am constantly sitting in the editor's chair with a big red pen. it's not so bad when i get to edit the work of others but editing my own work is ridiculously hard and aggravating. but it's like that for everybody, i suppose, so no tears here.

however, being trapped inside by the weather, i came across a new painter to admire. i was actually trying to track down the work of a fellow CCA alum (to no avail) and stumbled across the online portfolio of artist Samantha Scherer. how gorgeous is this!







i am so stunned and jealous! hubba hubba hubba! i absolutely love her work! ALL OF IT! and i count myself lucky to have found her site. god bless the internet! and while we're on the topic of artist statements... Samantha's is awesome! work that calls upon her infatuation with shows like Law & Order and CSI.. come on! this girl is after my own heart here! love, love ,love! i'm gonna ask for one of her little watercolors for christmas.
