Featured Artist in the Alexandria Times
Wow. What a way to end 2017 & Start 2018! Thank you to the art community that supports me, the Alexandria Times called on one of their editors to interview me.
Jordan Wright called me and took the time to interview me and we chatted for over an hour about my work, the community, my life, and my daughter. It was really great to practice talking about my process and my work. It was very humbling to talk about my life and my life's work. I even managed to tell Jordan about my poetry, even though, still to this day it hasn't gotten much of a spotlight. (haha!)
Over the course of the interview, I realized something. My work has fluidly changed as much as I have changed myself. I have been going through a lot of evolution and transformations over these past 5 years that reflecting on it made me realize just how far I have come. It's been great to navigate through my self exploration with art and I have to say painting and motherhood have managed to help me through it more than any other creative outlet has before.
Even though this was printed in the Alexandria Times, there is a digital copy that can be found on Whisk & Quill.
The interview ends with sharing information about the Del Ray Artisan's show, Sensorium, where I am the featured curator that is opening on January 5th (if you can come to the opening it's from 7-9pm!), but the show really isn't about me. It's about the beautiful artwork submitted and accepted (over 50+ pieces of art)
Back to my artworks, moving forward in 2018, I am really connecting to my flow. I have felt for a longtime of doing work that connects Home Decor and Design to Motherhood and Connection. This next series that I am doing is going to reflect that.
The theme around my new series is going to be about how although, in the Western World, we can get caught up in design, our identity, our personal branding, and obsessed with what matches our couch or our spirit animal, we forget that everything in our lives is created and representative of our life- our lives are lived in! And if you are a mom- you know like me- that no matter how much design you put into your home, those barbies or toy trucks will be peeking out at you and all over the place!
This new series will be about my emotions connecting my journey through self actualization and also staying present as a Mom. There will be little gems of Cayce's playtime (more than ever before!) hidden in each piece to signify the mother part. More on the rest when I release the series, which will be sometime early spring.
Keep up with snapshots of my journey on Instagram! It's basically a giant art party of fun and love and magic.
