The geometric and the organic in one string of lights . An amorphous wreath . This Shibori DIY coincides well with Nozkowski's aesthetic. This little lamp is so like Nozkowski's amorphous shapes. A quick and easy Nozkowski-inspired sculpture DIY.

Lately, I've been uninspired. The busyness of back to school, helping my new Kindergartener with his homework, and new volunteering opportunities have all kept me from my first love of painting and creating. Until......I was digging around in my secret stas...

Vacation: Painting
Blue is a vacation color. Water, calm, the sea, just what one is supposed to experience on vacation. This little watercolor is a work in progress. I want to do something different, out of my element. It's time to get out of my comfort zone. Let's see what I...

Research: Vacation
If I could go anywhere for vacation right now, I would like to revisit the tiny island of Torcello . A short ferry ride from Venice, Italy, it's a magical place with gorgeous cypress trees, a small church, small ruins, and beautiful views of the water and o...

Fresh Paint adaptation of Nozkowski Painting. I've believed that a great way to understand an artist and his/her process is to copy one of their paintings. I chose this one because of the complexity of the background and mix of geometric and organic. Most o...

Vacation: Painting
Okay, I didn't get too weird. It's so hard to do something other than the norm. I love clean lines, color, and bleeding edges. But, I did add pattern which is something I never do and that pattern is plaid which is even more rare. I'd like to think of this ...

Vacation
With Summer nearing a close I'm feeling nostalgic for past vacations. Though my family is unable to take a vacation now (Kindergarten starts Tuesday for Gio!), I'm thinking about where I would want to go if I could. They say planning a vacation can be just ...

Story
Introduction

Growing up in Southern California, one of my favorite things to do was to go to my Grandma’s house. Her house was full of artist’s monographs, strange objects like a molded wax hand and an octopus in a jar, and her large canvases painted with all manner of subjects from horses, to chickens, to portraits of my aunts. Every time we went to her house there was something new to discover.  I always left with a new sense of wonder, full of inspiration and curiosity. Even now, just speaking to her on the phone gives me that same feeling.

I created this blog to be like my Grandmother’s house; a place to discover knew things, find inspiration, and instill a sense of wonder.
