A D.C. Travel Guide for People Who Love Art

Thanks to my combined knowledge of travel and my own city, I think I do a pretty good job of showing people around this place. There's a lot to see, and sadly I think most visitors never step foot beyond Capitol Hill and the National Mall, so they really only get a sense of the … Continue reading A D.C.

Game of Chance in Nail Art

Summer time means a lot of road trips for my family, and that means a lot of time eating out. While we wait for our food to come we like to break out a pack of cards and play a quick round (sometimes three if it takes a while or we are moving quick!) of … Continue reading Game of Chance in Nail Art

The Hand of Destiny: Organic Tattoos

I recently went to a Summer festival, full of carnival games and delicious sweet and fried tidbits. I ate a yummy fruit tart (gluten free, of course) sold by a local bakery, and actually won a round in that impossible milk bottle toss game. And then, I noticed a little both on the outskirts of … Continue reading The Hand of Destiny: Organic Tattoos

Loveland Cafe

This monoprint was made with water color pencils. It isn`t technically a monoprint, as I never actually got around to printing it, but it is a monoprint in process, so that is close enough. I took a photo in a National Geographic from the nineties and created a sketch (I didn`t copy the original!) and … Continue reading Puffin, Monoprint

This Distance Between Us

I made a room divider.  The super cool amazing thing about this is that it is made with my favorite material: card board! It is 4' tall and 1' wide, and is layered in a cardboard core, a layer of cork on top, and burlap with a scrolling pattern in sky blue on top. The … Continue reading This Distance Between Us

I was off on a Zafari…

Wondering about the title? I just really love sticking 'Z' into everything now. It makes me feel like I`m following a theme or something! So, what`s up in Zville? I have been crafting five different posts for you today. That is why I did a double post yesterday, just to make sure I wasn`t leaving … Continue reading I was off on a Zafari…
