  • Sheltering-in-Place, Day 8

    The biggest reason why I'm not just taking photographs of myself and posting those to document my therapy-through-attire is because I'm notoriously camera-shy.
  • Sheltering-in-Place, Day 7

    The small parts of today involved website work and figuring out that the things I want don't match up with the way things work. So, I danced.
  • Sheltering-in-Place, Day 6

    Sunshine was definitely the highlight of today. Yeah, it peaked early.

  • Sheltering-in-Place, Day 5

    Today, I got cozy. I got ready for cats and silliness and keeping my chin up, metaphorically and posture-ly. There's nothing ergonomic about using your great grandmother's hope chest as a drawing desk. I took a lot of breaks.
  • Sheltering-in-Place, Day 4

    I tried to set up my interim art space.

  • Sheltering-in-Place, Day 1

    During our collective, yet separated, attempts to get through the coronavirus pandemic, I'm learning how to use a new piece of digital drawing equipment. Luckily, I had it ordered and shipped to me weeks ago. I just gave it my first try today. It's a Huion drawing screen, a monitor that I can use a stylus directly on in order to digitally draw or paint. It's going to take a little getting used to, in a good way.
  • The Endo-graphic

    What does this have to do with painting, animals, or conservation? Nothing. It's about raising awareness about a debilitating disease that does no...
  • Endometriosis: It's a Real Problem.

    You may be wondering why there's a post (or two or more) about endometriosis on a website all about animals and conservation. That's fair. The reas...
  • Unicorns Are Real. They're Rhinos.

    My main goal with all this rhino art is to inspire other people to care about rhinos. That means that I need to find ways to make rhinos relatable...
