A Field Guide to Salmon

A Field Guide to Salmon


( had to remove the video until the poem is officially published)



Finally!! I’m finishing up this video for the very lovely and warm Abigail Warren. She asked me to animate one of her poems and I am so grateful for the experience and the learning process of making this video. So excited to be nearing it’s completion!  I have to say, I’m really excited that this past year has brought me such a very rich inspiration of topics.  I’m excited to see what 2014 will bring.

Here is a little recap of some events.

August brought the installation of two local shows.  One was in a sweet & warm little cafe, I actually used to work at, called Woodstar Cafe.  I completed 23 paintings in 25 days. And that wasn’t even the end of it.  I’m not going to include all pictures of everything.  Just a smattering of paintings to share.




The other was a showing of fresh paintings at Hope & Feathers in Amherst.

Two grants were written, sent out and received!



All the while, commissions were thankfully received, started, and completed come September & October.

Then I finally slept.

I ran away for a little bit to be with family.  Then returned home to make giant sculptures of Owls to set up a window display for Ode Boutique.


And finally. Right now. I got a chance to reflect.  I”m excited to see what 2014 will bring feel deeply grateful for the source that’s been with me since I was a baby letting me lose my sense of self to a box of crayons and mud from the back yard, and the love I feel from and for my community & family.
