Letter to a Grieving Creative

Let’s face it, grief completely sucks! There is no way to sugarcoat it. When you're going through the process, it's possible that the people around you have no idea what to say or how to help, so it can become a very isolating experience. I want you to know that are not alone.

Do you think that we can become artists of preservation? I sure do! I believe we have a deep responsibility to protect and preserve the environment we capture through images, paintings, sculptures we create for years to come.

The Getaway House

I recently had the opportunity to escape for a few days to the Getaway House in the Catskills (NY). I was invited as one of their Artist Fellows to stay for 2 nights in their “Frieda” tiny home.

What types of shoes do you wear in the studio?

Have you heard about the minimal shoe movement? Minimal shoes are different than regular shoes in a couple of ways. For one, they have a much wider toe-box, which gives your feet room to stretch (you can even wear toe spacers with many of them). They allow your feet to feel and respond to more variety in the terrain you walk on (automatically!), which helps retrain your muscles to develop more strength in areas that are lacking. Minimal shoes can be a great step on the path to developing more resilient ankles!

Have you had any issues with copycats? I know I have! I can’t tell you how many times I have had brands and even organizations that I’ve worked closely with trying to create offerings that use language that is a little too close to what I do. I believe in collaboration over competition but it is also important to protect your creative brand in the process.
