pressing personal matters

14th August 2012 | 0 Comments

Because of personal matters my August post(s) are delayed. Mostly, there hasn’t been much new in my creative process. I’ve had to take some personal time to get my work/home/art lives sorted out but once I get everything a bit more settled I’ll be good to go with more creative and interesting pieces of jewelry. [...]


August in San Francisco

23rd July 2012 | 0 Comments

I know it is still July but I’ve got a show in August that I’m prepping for that I felt the need to write about. So, upcoming show–this is the City Art Gallery August theme show–the theme: San Francisco. This is an annual August show for City Art and I was in it last year…and [...]


outside is a reflection of the inside…

12th July 2012 | 0 Comments

I have been an artist for several years. Every show, every month, every year, I feel I have to re-establish myself and reassert myself as an artist. I truly feel the need to do this when I have gone through difficult times in my personal life. I have been through some very difficult things in [...]


serious professional neglect

22nd June 2012 | 0 Comments

I have neglected not only this blog, but my purpose of this blog for several months–my purpose was originally to showcase my process of my work and to showcase my development as an artist in San Francisco. I haven’t spent as much time developing my jewelry lately as I’d like. I’ve been spending more time [...]


The Calm before the Artistic Chaos…

7th June 2012 | 0 Comments

Something I feel I need to write at length about: my more or less recent encounter with artistic chaos. Yep, chaos, artistic chaos at that. Why would I have artistic chaos… Part of that answer is really simple–I bring it upon myself. The rest, not as simple. I do social marketing and networking for the [...]


When inspiration hits…

28th May 2012 | 0 Comments

When your work comes so naturally, doesn’t feel forced, it feels so good. The last few days have been spent doing the bidding of my muse (see previous posts about my internal monologue on my muse). This also means that time gets away from you. Sadly, this means nothing when it comes to my writing. [...]


June show, Lurid

21st May 2012 | 0 Comments

Summer in San Francisco is not what the rest of the world would consider to be summer. Summer is foggy, not all that warm, and all around kinda dreary. So, the June theme show at City Art is Lurid. As in ghostly, (foggy), ghastly, low red to yellow color through shadow or smoke, etc. How [...]


Local History

10th May 2012 | 0 Comments

Once I land in a city, I tend to soak up whatever kind of history that the city has to offer. San Francisco has history around every corner. Every neighborhood has it’s own history. Pre-earthquake and post-earthquake are terms thrown around to mark the 1906 earthquake that leveled the city. Specific neighborhoods are ethnic neighborhoods–japan [...]

The art world in San Francisco is an interesting one. In my year and some change in San Francisco has cultivated some very interesting connections. 6 degrees of separation get cut to 1 or 2 very quickly. In my experience with Trickster, the degrees of separation are equally only 1 or 2 degrees of separation [...]
