Ah, the ever-changing dynamics of the ecosystem shared by Art and the Internet. This has come up in every peer conversation, every artist statement, proposal and grant application I’ve written this month. Think I’ll write an essay about it & post it here. But this is not my purpose right now. I’ve been doing some … More You too can own a painting
The Harness is off. It’s over there on the floor. Curious, to see this thing I’ve worn for 30+ years… Who made it? Why so tight? Why the rough rope? It’s ingenious, actually. There’s a pull cord I see that will jab thumbtacks into my backside when I’m slowing down, and simultaneously tighten the collar … More Who designed this?

It’s been a privilege to be at the centre of this project and participate in the discovery, the shaping and polishing of each facet. Quite a geological process … More #Selfie 19: The Writing of Book

This one in particular has been a journey I wasn’t expecting. While I drew this I was actively wondering what the empty space at the top of the square … More #Selfie 16: Demons and veils
I once played a minor (non-musical) part on a Rolling Stones Tour – ‘Steel Wheels’ in the ’80s. I have a tour jacket, even, that boyfriends past have happily worn… and torn and stained. This comes up now because I wrote the blog title first. It’s still a good jacket, and I keep it to … More #Selfie 15: You get what you need
