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.

keep on relishing in the Goodness!!!

national arts in education week continues! i give you the amazing Zoe Leonard.

i've been staring at her images a lot lately. A LOT. there is a quality... a roughness, a thoughtfulness, a diaristic sort of awareness taking place in her documents. there is a quality in her work that i want for myself, for my own work.

she makes me want to read more Susan Sontag.
