Introducing "Ms.X". A 20ft X 7ft chalk mural located at Restaurant GoodLuck in downtown Rochester, NY. This piece was completed January 2018. 

"Ms.X" is based off of my travel in Spain and Italy this past year, my family, the feeling of the restaurant, contour sketches and of course, stories and superstitions about luck. As GoodLuck rounds the final corner of year 9 and saunters into year 10 (X), I am feeling so lucky to have a piece in this wonderful restaurant I am so proud to be a part of. 

A big thank you to GL for letting me have this giant wall to make the biggest piece I've ever made! Feeling grateful I get to do what I love and excited to keep making.

Long time, no blog! what a whirl wind of a few months it has been. In short, we have a lot of catching up to do which I promise to address in the coming week. 
To start, I want to share with you this piece I created in collaboration with food enthusiast, all things baked guru, self proclaimed cheese monger, Max Lazary. This was a submission to The Artist Recipe Project, a cookbook written by artists and made by artists. I am SO excited to be part of this awesome project (especially because I love to cook) and was really happy when I was invited to submit. I am surprised and very proud of the piece I made and the original recipe Max and I submitted. I was really happy with how my first time working in a more refined format worked out and I am even kind of itching to do it again! 
I will do my best to start the process of recounting the past few months, but for now, enjoy this recipe and make it this weekend for people you love. Comment with thoughts and stories! 
until next time....xx

Performance Ideas and Residency Applications

Recently, I have been submitting applications for residency programs abroad. In an application I submitted last week, I included a sketch of some performance ideas and concepts I was proposing. It brought back memories of learning about Labanotation in dance history during my time as a dance minor at AU. What an interesting way to think about movement and gesture. Below are some simple symbols I made up to sketch the notation concept I was trying to explain.
I am really excited to hear back from the residency programs I applied to! The work and series of pieces I proposed are very dependent on me being in a new space. I want this work to come to life. These ideas are ones that have been swimming around in my head for a few years now. They are beyond ready to be in the world. Fingers crossed!!!



I've been working on a few different projects lately that have gotten me pretty stuck. I am out of my normal comfort zone but that push has really seemed to pay off. Here are a few ladies I've been drawing and thinking about the past few weeks as I push through the tough uncomfortable fog and break free into uncharted new territory. I'm excited to share more about these projects in the coming weeks and months.


Catching up

It's been a minute since I last posted….. actually, it's been a year and some serious change to be exact (almost 2 years eeekkkk!). A lot has changed and happened in my life, in my work and in my mind and I am so very excited to start sharing again with all of you. As I continue renovations to my site and life, please check in, browse, send me feedback and let me know if anything catches your eye, heart or mind. 

Talk to you soon, I promise.


Exciting news!

I am so excited to finally share this with you all! A few months ago, I was contacted by Cordell Cordaro from ArtHouse Press with an interest on writing an article about me and my work. And after lots of handwork by the team at ArtHouse Press, yesterday is was published! Thank you so much to Stephen Reardon for the photos! I'd like to extend congratulations  to the other 3 wonderful female artist powerhouses I was featured with! Please check it out and feel free to share, share, share!!!! :)


Looking back

I took out an old sketchbook today from about 3 years ago and started reading through old quotes or sayings I jotted down. One of my favorites I wrote on August 6th, 2013 it reads, "eventually you realize that everything in your reach is in your reach and everything that's not is in your mind."  

Tonight I am reflecting a lot on myself. It's exhausting to dive so deeply into your own thoughts. But I hope it helps me. 




It's official. The countdown to shows has kicked into high gear. We are 20 days out and it's flying by super fast. I'm still figuring out how it's all going to come together.
