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.

yesterday morning, i loaded up the truck with all the big oil paintings and a few of the big drawings and drove out to san francisco to meet up with my friend freya prowe, the artist who came by for a studio visit a few weeks ago.

she, me, launa bacon, meagan donegan, and kimberlee koym have descended upon SLINGSHOT at 890 valencia in san francisco. that's right: A SHOW!!!!! i sang to myself the entire drive down and the entire drive back up. i helped paint the walls and i giggled all day (in spite of getting a parking ticket) and am simply overjoyed to be showing with artists i so admire. if you are in the vicinity, please come by and say hi. the opening reception in november 6th, 6 - 8pm. i'd absolutely love to see you!

and i tell ya: there is absolutely nothing so good for motivation as a show! ha! i am eager to go get lost in some oil and graphite today. :)

elisabeth, thank you so much! maybe one day, after a lot of hard work, i'll be able to bring the show overseas to you. :)

This is exciting...I hope you will post so that we can all attend in some form, knowing we wish to be there, as Elisabeth, in person. Your enthusiasm is inspiring.
