i'm doing my

home work...

… and I want to share it with you! 

 

I draw what I think and see.  It's sort of like scribing, and a little like painting. 

 

November finds me in Brooklyn, where I'm settling in to the  school year, riding my bike and teaching English to 1st graders.  I guess I still believe in hope.   Abiding love.  Making art.  Listening to each other.

Breathe.  Make beauty in your life.  Give whatever you can.  Get your booster shot....

what i'm working on

The pandemic dance is easing.  Studio time is fractured by teaching time.   There are still four areas of study:  taming my thoughts into 8 paneled zines, finding voice and music in some translations by Rilke,  sending my children’s book ideas into the world, and keeping a writing practice.
