Tonight at RiversideJS, my team won a JavaScript skill competition that tested how fast we could implement the same visualization of Congress data. I got to take home the trophy!

My painting for Day 6 of #100daysofwatercolor (part of #the100dayproject).

If you click through to the blog post, I also wrote about my struggles with self-criticism and art.
I have a confession to make. Sometimes when I work on my paintings for the 100 day project, I do them at night right before bed when I'm completely exhausted. My state of mind in these situations is wanting to get the paintin...

The 100 Day Project just started, and +Daniel Roy Greenfeld and I just joined it. He's doing cartwheels for 100 days, and I'll be doing 100 experimental watercolor paintings from imagination. It's not too late to join -- anyone want to do it with us?
The Great Discontent (TGD) is a quarterly print publication and online magazine featuring candid interviews with those who create.

The India Edition of Two Scoops of Django is now available. I write on the Two Scoops Press blog about why it has special significance to us.
The India Edition of Two Scoops of Django 1.6 is now available at the following outlets: Within the next few weeks we hope to add Infibeam to the list of supported Indian retailers. Personal Note From Audrey The India Edition has special significance to us because my father is from India, and some of my family is still there. On my father's side, my grandfather was a civil engineer, and my grandmother was a mathematician. My grandmother passed aw...

So yeah, when I can't think of what to draw or paint, it always ends up being ice cream in weird contexts.

My default used to be oranges in strange situations, then surreal rainbows and clouds coming out of random things. But now this.

It's all Two Scoops of Django's fault.
Everyone has a default doodle or two that they make when they can't think of what to draw. Sometimes when I can't think of what to draw, my default is ice cream. I blame Two Scoops of Django for this.

Into The Brambles, the first book of my husband Daniel's epic fantasy series is now out on Amazon.

This is the big project that we've been working on quietly. Most of my free time over the past 4 months went into editing and revising the book. As a result, it's quite polished now.

I also did the cover art, including the custom lettering work.

It's a very fun read, and I'm extremely proud of our work, so go check it out! More details on Danny's blog: http://www.danielroygreenfeld.com/2015/03/into-brambles-is-published.html

Story
Tagline
Software engineer, author, illustrator, artist
Introduction
I'm co-author of Two Scoops of Django, a book about best practices with the Django web framework. I'm also principal at Cartwheel Web, where I work with Python and Django all day.

I am also a fine artist and found-object sculptor.  I draw digital vector illustrations of oranges, create landscapes and illusions with code, and sculpt rainbows out of tires, wood, and concrete.

I have the #1 fiancé in the world, Daniel Greenfeld!
