I love learning. Which is a good thing since my day job is in the high tech sector where if you aren’t continuously learning you get left behind super quickly. But even in my art life where the processes I utilize are slow, methodical, and time intensive, I want to continue to evolve, to learn, and to incorporate new ideas and directions.

A month or so ago I met with the lovely and energetic Pennylane Shen of dazedandconfucious.com. I had heard good things about Pennylane and I was not disappointed! We spent an hour together and by the end I had a page full of mind bending ideas about ways I can further develop my practice and avenues I might pursue. I’ve spent the past month researching some of the ideas, sifting and sorting thru what and how I will incorporate these changes. I’m excited to keep moving my art forward and to see the ways in which I can keep advancing.
