I don't want my website to become a place of political debate. So I'm going to get this out and then end of story. No need to tell me why you disagree with me. I am really frustrated! I am tired of the arguing and name calling not just amongst strangers but between friends and family. Listen everyone, you need to accept the results of the election. Now, hold off on writing something snarky and rude until you read everything I...

I've heard the creative mind described as much like a computer with thousands of tabs open at once. For me at least, this is pretty often the case. I'm always thinking, processing, analyzing, planning, imagining, and trying to figure out what will happen in the future. Sometimes I'm working out a multitude of tasks in my brain and forget within seconds, what I was going to say to someone. Sometimes, my brain doesn't know when...

Because I'm a painter, people encourage me to paint my feelings when I'm upset. I've never been much good at that. I like painting things that make me feel good. I don't want to paint something that will bring up the pain I'm currently feeling so that I can depress myself with these same emotions every time I look at it. I want to paint in order to lift myself out of the dreariness, not wallow in it.

Have you ever been scared of a painting? Munch, Bosch and Goya certainly have a few that might instill fear in a person. The painting I'm currently afraid of features two Concorde guitars. I know it's not something that traditionally sends shivers down the spines of most people. However, I'm one of the "special people" who is infamously "afraid of the ball," ... and birds .. and my shadow sometimes.. and okay maybe on rare occ...

 2014 was filled with some dramatic highs and lows. The first part of the year brought a lot of professional drama and stress. By mid-year however, I was in a much better space. While the work stress continued at my day job, I was a happy girl and in a relationship with my best friend. I found a balance between the amount of tension that work brought me with the happiness I found outside of the office. If your only complaint i...

Every so often, I like to highlight something that I'm really enjoying; whether it be a new art genre, work out, exhibit or anything else under the sun. If I'm feeling inspired by it or slightly obsessed with it, I'm going to mention it. I like to think of myself as Oprah and these sharing moments as her Favorite Things.

I am really sad the holidays are over. The Christmas lights that once glowed so brightly are getting packed in boxes and the Christmas trees one by one, have begun to line the curb. For such a short time, the world seems to be on the same page with me, indulging in festive music, bright lights and an affinity for eggnog. Now I'm on my own again, a year long elf with regular ears in the warm California sun.
