Goodbye 2020, hello 2021

1 min read

While I learned a ton and found endless inspiration in nature in 2020 - I'm happy to be looking forward to a new year with different (fun) challenges, lots of art making, and eventually, more social gatherings!

The craziness of the last year taught me to appreciate more - friends and family, health, time and flexibility to make art. I’ve gained better perspective on what it’s time to purge to make room for growth (like resentments and that stack of clothes I never wear) and a deeper understanding on how I want my life and business to thrive moving forward.

I’m excited for the possibilities the future holds and look forward to sharing new work that reflects this notion.

For now, I’m staring at a blank canvas, literally and figuratively, as I work through inspiration guiding me into 2021.

I made these shallow copper bowls and fired on a base coat of white glass. I just need to etch them and then I’ll have fun blank canvases to draw and paint before I fire them again with a coat of clear glass over top. Currently I’m playing around with layering ideas inspired by the endless mountain vistas experienced during hikes.

I look forward to sharing the journey with you.

Happy New Year!
