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.

i had such a wonderful day yesterday! i spend the majority of the day hanging out with my buddy eddie at his art studio in oakland, just laughing and catching up on each other's lives since graduation and talking shop. eddie's a wonderful artist and super smart so i'm always all ears when we're together. in the evening we headed on over to the city to make the rounds for first thursday and by the time we worked our way up to HANG, was pleasantly surprised that my gallery had the most traffic of any of the other galleries we'd visited. YAY! i'm sure the cold weather was the culprit for the smaller art-going crowd this week but i was happy to see that it didn't effect the turn-out to the opening at HANG. it was great to be out and about, checking out tons of new work, and talking to new people. wonderful! and just what i needed to counter act the funk i normally find myself in during the winter months. damn seasonal depression. it's the big reason why i could never live in a place like seattle. over-cast days make me a seriously dreary girl. i am entirely thankful to live in sunny california.
