My First Video Interview

Ok, it’s not really my first video interview, but it is the first one I’m posting here on my website. My friend Juliana Matias picked me for her film making debut. She and her instructor came to my studio and started filming its contents. It is so interesting seeing a familiar environment through someone else’s […]

Toni Morrison – Women Behaving Badly – Part 2

In the 1980s, Toni Morrison had been going through the recorded history of slavery and came across something that disturbed her. Ina  newspaper clipping about runaway slaves was the story of a woman who did the unthinkable. When it was clear that she would be captured, she killed her own child. She said that she […]

Toni Morrison – Women Behaving Badly – Part 1

You know what I love most about this series? I love delving into the lives of the women I get to paint. Many of them, I had heard of, but didn’t really know what they were famous for. Take Toni Morrison, for example. Growing up, I knew that she was  a famous African American Author. […]

The thing that hits us the hardest, though, is the undercurrent of racism and bigotry that has risen to the surface. Many people are […]

Focusing on Women Behaving Badly – 50% off Sale on Synesthesia

I have recently come to a decision about my business. I wish to concentrate on my series Women Behaving Badly. I have spent the last year working on various projects for clients, and while it has been rewarding, I fear it has taken me away from my true passion. The Women Behaving Badly series has […]

Vote for me – Small Business Grant

Hi everyone, I’ve been taking a break from blogging for a while. I am far more visual than I am wordy, so at times, I just focus on the images. There are some new ones I want to share with you, but first, I have something to tell you about. I recently applied for a small […]

Battling Unconscious Biases with Art

I may have mentioned this before but I love listening to podcasts. My list seems to grow every month as more, interesting series come to my attention. I stared listening to Radio Lab a few years ago and it was like my gateway drug. Podcasts allow me to insert information into my brain while I […]
