Updating things a bit

2 02 2014

This blog was a little outdated. The gallery now represents more of my current art, I have taken down very old pieces that do not show the skill or themes I am working on now. The links have also been weeded out and updated. I hope to keep up with this blog a more now. I do still have a lot of things to say, and it seems that I might be starting to get some time to put into it.

Thank you for still being here! Thank you for paying attention to it!





So busy!

I keep thinking I want to post about my ongoing projects, however I not only am busy working on those projects and therefore not having time to blog about them, but since they are in progress I cannot show them yet. Nevertheless keep finding myself wanting to share with you guys the stuff I am working on! I want to show you all so much!

I guess I could blog about some past projects, I do have one I want to tell you about, which has been finished soon before Santiago was born and I found it to be a great learning experience from a business point of view, but I guess I will have to wait a bit to tell you about it, since I need to go work on my newest project which is wedding stationery… who would have thought I was going to do anything like that! So off I am now to try to learn about that kind of design…. see you all later!

Trying to make it back to art

8 07 2013

The last six months have been rather quiet in my art life. I had a second son in February and by the end of the year I was pregnant, chasing after a very active 20 something months old, doing art at night, participating in social networking, blogging, doing tubes, and very, very tired. I was also getting ready to give birth physiologically in a VBAC and it required quite a lot of preparation, and most of it emotional (it was a little scary), I realized  that I was too tired to be a good wife to my husband and came to the realization that I needed to reevaluate my activities. I took some time off of the art social networking and focused on some commissions I needed to finish before giving birth, but most importantly I focused on my family and the restructuring that was to come.

Now it is time to go back, I still find it difficult to find the time to do art, with two little kids and not much sleep, but I need it for my sanity and I miss it dearly. I will hopefully be working on a wonderful project with Laura Siadak, which I find fascinating not only because I love her work to bits but because it would be my first real collaboration. I always wanted to do one and I look forward to the exchange of ideas that comes from this kind of work. Expect goodness to follow!

I am also working on a very personal piece that I am hoping to finish soon. It means a lot to me and it helped me transit the last stretch of pregnancy and delivery.

In the meanwhile, let me show you an update of my family 🙂
