Hello friends and family!
Hope you are having beautiful weekend so far. Wanted to say a quick hello and let you know that Go West Craft Fest is happening TODAY at the Woodlands in West Philly from 11AM-5PM. It's one of my favorite events of the year because:
1. it's outdoors on trails among the trees!
2. it's filled with amazing creatives, artists and vendors (I save up to get people gifts at this event- there are so many beautiful, wholehearted and handmade wonders to explore).
3. there is music all day and a trapeze act performance!!?! (I'll be performing around 4pm).
It. is. amazing.
I also made these reusable tote bags to collect your treasures in. They are each hand painted like most everything I create (business cards, postcards, download cards, etc)- can't stop, won't stop! haha. I have a very limited number for my first batch and look forward to sharing them with you.
Hope to see you at Go West today!
Hello beautiful friends and family,
I am excited to share an interview that I did with Loraine Morrill of iHeart Radio last week! It was fun to share some thoughts behind the purpose of my music and art. I have been thinking more about spaces I want my art to exist in and what I want it to contribute to those spaces. I am still musing on this idea and will have more to share in a coming email, but am excited to share this clip in the meantime.
It was especially inspiring to hear the story of Nikki Powerhouse- a fellow artist and performer- who will be performing along with me and a number of other amazing ladies at the Barnes THIS Friday, September 21st, sharing excerpts from her solo show "I AM". Here her full circle story in the interview below. *Phew- such a story!* The show will include acrobatics, dance, drums, theater and music. Get your $10 ticket for this action, heart and movement filled night HERE and show up and out for the evening!

Look at that cute little baby Fiddle Leaf Fig!! Ah. So tiny. Ricky pointed out that the one in our house could now qualify as a tree- it has gotten so big since we brought it home haha. *sniffflesofproundplantparents* They grow up so fast! Come explore a mini taste of the tropics in the greenhouse and create your own botanical watercolor painting!
