Blueberry Tapestry

I have never been good at sewing. I am an impatient maker. I can only be meticulous for so long before I have to be gestural and get back to playing. With that being said, I have discovered that sewing can be quite relaxing and doesn't have to be so perfect. Here is a blueberry dyed, handmade paper (by yours truly) tapestry. It is 17" wide and 20" tall. It is beautiful and earthy and I am in love with this. 

Take Care of Her

I hope that you are enjoying this Spring weather that has arrived so quickly. My birthday is June 2nd and I relied on the weather so immensely to be Spring as a little girl. Hoping that I could enjoy and celebrate in sunshine and blooming. I would get nervous when the inevitable May snow would inch so close to my special day. Now, it is a time of the past. Yes, it is April, but Minnesota climate has changed dramatically in the last decade. I keep this in mind and try to make wise choices to my contribution to our beautiful, green state. Take care of your home and she will take care of you too

Gemini, Gemini

As a Gemini with a Gemini Moon I NEED change. This Beauty was a delight to make! There were so many different steps to this process that I found myself incredibly, creatively stimulated. And this is essential for me. I want to make things that feel good, that excite my artistic soul, things that whisper to my perfectionist mind, "Relax, I've got this." All of this. 

Art with Intention

I am a observer and listener to all the details in a moment. I absorb. And what I've found is that a great deal of time and energy is spent on destruction and spite. It is by no means the only thing, but it certainly seems to be a significant dose. I don't want to add to this negativity. I want to produce art that is beautiful, yes, but art that makes you feel good. I wish for you to feel calm or pleased in the way a small smirk creeps onto your face. As a visual culture and a visual artist I am adding to the daily dose of your dreams and ideas. What I produce and you see matters. It is intentional. And I hope that it brings you joy.
