Artwork, July Update

July has actually been a busy month for me in terms of art projects. While I haven’t made any new prints or cyanotypes, I have finished some mixed media paintings, and have undertaken a new knitting project. Today though, I’ll show you a personal project I finished last month: a painted end table. Brandon and… Continue reading Artwork, July Update

Artwork, June Update

Last month I told you about my recent interest in making jewelry using intaglio prints I had made on paper clay, and the potential I thought it had in pushing my creative practice into wearable or practical objects. Today, I’ll show you some more jewelry I’ve been making, this time featuring cyanotypes. First, a little… Continue reading Artwork, June Update

Artwork, May Update

It’s hard for me to believe, but I first learned to make prints nearly ten years ago during the summer of 2011, when I took an introductory workshop at Burlington City Arts. I had recently arrived for my curatorial fellowship at Shelburne Museum, and was going to be working primarily with its fine art collection,… Continue reading Artwork, May Update

With spring well underway here in Williamsburg, I’ve been celebrating the change in season with my sketching. Let’s take a look at what I’ve doing. Several of these drawings are studies for the next entry in my vanitas series, with spring as the seasonal focal point.

Today, I’ll show you the first entry in this group, Williamsburg Still Life: Winter, which I finished a couple of weeks ago. I completed this drawing over two weeks. I worked on it during the evenings,… Continue reading Artwork, March Update

Artwork, February Update

Last month I talked about how I had revamped my sketching practice so that I could spend the weekends working on more ambitious projects. Today I’ll share what I’ve been working on so far.

Artwork: January Update

One of the things I’ve been wanting to do this year is make more art. That’s always the case, but it’s been especially true this year. Despite being at home most of 2020, I didn’t do a lot of art-making. While I started out the year strong by finishing a lot of incomplete projects, shortly… Continue reading Artwork: January Update

Holiday Cards 2020

December means it’s time for holiday cards. Admittedly, I had thought about skipping this year because writing personal notes to thirty or so people can be a bit of a slog. Given how trying 2020 has been, however, I thought the people in my life could benefit from a little mailbox cheer, so I went… Continue reading Holiday Cards 2020

Art Break: Cat Paintings

Today I thought I would highlight a fun little painting project I did earlier this year. Best of all, it stars our two kitty cats, Gustave and Iris. For years, Brandon has been wanting me to paint our cats. Not that I haven’t wanted to do this, but the cats can be challenging to draw.… Continue reading Art Break: Cat Paintings

My first Inktober: #wildoctoberart

I recently completed my first Inktober challenge. A portmanteau of ink and October, Inktober challenges invite participants to create one daily drawing throughout the month to encourage consistent drawing habits. Participants will then share these drawings on Instagram or other social media outlets to encourage one another as they complete the challenge. I’ve never participated… Continue reading My first Inktober: #wildoctoberart
