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.

this piece was commissioned by someone i know and love and respect so so so much! single handedly the best commission i've ever done, both in terms of subject and experience. elsie, our beloved. a strange angel that hovers around our heads and homes and lives. i feel connected to her in a way that i do not have the language with which to name. but the poet who commissioned this portrait does and i am excited for the fields of tall grass she swirls up, in line and breath, for us to hide and seek in. perfect.
