sheltering in place in 2020

this year we are all being asked to shelter in place due to a global pandemic. my heart goes out to all who are suffering in this time, & especially those friends who are dealing directly with the coronavirus. I feel fortunate to be able to use my time for creative growth. while sheltering-in-place I have been painting more than I have since I was in art school! I have all day without distractions, in between nature explorations, to fulfill my creative whims. I feel so much appreciation for my beautiful home in this time, it has become a sanctuary of solitude. I am so grateful to have access to nature from my door, & to live in a place with many protected forests & hills to wander through. I am so grateful for this abundant gift of time, & I have filled over 30 canvases in the past month.

while I wait for the paint to dry in the evenings I have been beadweaving. it’s a very meditative process of stringing & weaving together very tiny beads, with my endless collection of live grateful dead shows playing in the background. I get carried away for hours on end beadweaving & have made too many for myself so I decided to post some of the woven fringe seed bead earrings I made to my online store. visit my store & support me in my craft! all purchases from my online store help me buy more supplies to continue my art practice.  below are some photos of my beadweaving fringe glass bead earrings at the beach displayed on some weathered driftwood on a hot summer day. I love the way the sun shines through & is reflected by each tiny piece of glass. I hope everyone reading this has been able to find health & happiness despite this global pandemic… may you be happy !


rye sourdough bread recipe

Since everyone is baking right now, I am posting this here for my sisters & all others who have asked for my bread recipe. I made this recipe up when I couldn’t find one that I liked & it has worked very well for me, & hopefully it will for others who like a very dense seedy rye loaf bread. It’s best to cut it very thick with a serrated knife. Preparing the dough is extremely easy once you get a feel for growing the culture. Super good with avocado, eggs, greens, cheese, mushrooms & garlic, honey & butter. In my mind I call it ” beeb bread” since my family calls me “Beebs” 🙂

I love being a part of the annual group exhibition at Gallery Route One in Point Reyes Station! This was my third year chosen to be a part of the show and many of my pieces are inspired by the landscapes surrounding this gallery.

Thanks to Juror Amy Spencer for awarding both of my pieces awards of merit for the second year in a row! The show will be up until February 8th!
