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.

on a roll...

3 more little apron paintings in the bag, a ton of work on the next maid portraits (soon. very, very soon), and these:

this is one of the mono prints i made for the SJICA last month. i'd spent hours working on the very first one and, after pulling that print and a few ghosts, i painted back in to the original plate with sepia and black ink to get this piece.

and this is one of the ghost prints, touched up with a bit of black gouache. yum.

both pieces:
22" x 15"
mono print
angela simione, 2009

the top piece is available now at black fence.

You are defiantly on a roll, gorgeous!

thanks heather! i'm trying to be diligent and use the hours of my day wisely... do as much work as i possibly can (or stand!). and i've been getting lucky with some nice stuff lately. i feel like the hard work is definitely starting to pay off.
