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.

remember the print edition i started weeks and weeks ago but never gave any updates about? well, that's because my lazy ass didn't finish it until today. ha! but after messing up quite a few, it's finally done and they all look so great. sadly, the edition isn't as large as i wanted it to be (i eliminated a whole slew off them that just weren't up to par - only 14 made the cut), but there's not one thing wrong with making a small edition. besides, working with glitter takes a lot more time than i realized...

every print in this edition is different (which is my favorite thing about this collection). i printed the houses in water-soluble ink and then splattered water on them. after drying, the fences were applied one by one in glitter, painted by hand. the idea here is that fences don't really offer any sort of protection. they're simply decorative, offering a pretty false sense of safety.
