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.

what it is to Make Art:


Henry states in seventy-eight pages of his book the most tragic of all truths: "Life does not interest me, what interests me is what I am doing right now (this book) which is parallel to it, of it, and yet beyond it."

-Anais Nin, Diary Vol. 2, p. 89

The sage old argument life follows art or art follows life. I think i recognise what Nin's on about though and I resonate to her choices. If she were alive now, I suspect she'd be a prolific blogger.

ha! i think you're right! she'd be so prolific we'd have to be obsessional readers of her blog. blog groupies! her writing habit changes the way i think about my own... and about writing / art in general. a mode of life in and of itself. a different way of being in the world. of breathing.
