What Makes an Artist?
So last night I was talking about music theory with Andy, when he mentioned he doesn't know how to read music. This was mind boggling to me, since he plays in a band and writes songs, and is multi-instrumental (bass, guitar, drums, saxophone). I remember a ...

Bi-Cultural Me! An Experience in Fludity
I often feel like a hypocrite when I tell my relatives in Taiwan "I'm too American for that." The that being something which I was reluctant to do, like fighting over checks at dinner, or taking direct criticism about my appearance or success with a laugh. ...

This week, I posted a short comment on social media about a humorous XOJane article about a woman who has decided to " sit " on manspreaders in the New York subway. The resulting thread of comments on this post lead me to mull over what it means to be a fem...

Studio Habits
The Artist In His Studio by Rembrandt Van Rijn Spent much of today on the road - driving to work, taking the bus downtown, and then taking the train home. Probably 3 hours of my day was spent in transit, feeling impatient about being in transit. Got home an...

Home on the Range?
Rainy evening - wet streets. Everyone rushing to get somewhere on a Friday night. Myself included. Made it home to numb my brain with some SVU and cat cuddles. Sometimes a mind just needs to be mindless in order to rest. While surfing Facebook, where I read...

Oh Captain My Captain. For My Friend Taken by Depression
I want to talk about depression. On its silent presence in our

Self Discoveries via Others
Today was a bit hectic. Running around the city trying to do a bunch of errands while fitting in some much needed art talks and shows. I don't currently consider myself an artist, primarily because I'm not making work regularly. *Contrary to popular culture...

Autumn Thoughts
The fall moves in slowly in Chicago. Leaves reluctantly depart from trees and form crisp carpets of gold beneath our feet. The days grow shorter, and everyone rushes to enjoy the last rays of sunshine each day. They know that winter comes too soon. This sho...
