This July & August has been all about learning new skills! Today I learned how to prep a wall for a mural. After serving on the Evanston Arts Council for SIX years and talking/funding/researching Public Art, it was time to help MAKE some.
New podcasts are coming soon and I hope you hear my newly gained skills coming through in my voice...it’s where the soul is.
Thank you @southwestair for making travel affordable & safe! We are all back in Evanston after our family reunion in Lake Almanor’s Lassen National Park, feeling grateful for summer, family, food, good health & smart decisions. Happy August! #summer#family#love
The sheer volume of talented humans living and working in Evanston is mind boggling! I was recently invited to be part of a fashion/personal styling project by ETHS student Emma Barreto @b.arreto and the results are amazing. Check out her profile and link to the project for inspiration from #evanston#youth
Listen for my interview with Emma in the coming weeks!
Our next interview features @thezipcodekid on his Collective Cartography residency at @1100florence
Grateful to have so many of my worlds collide!

Ben was one of my first podcast interviews and I love seeing his work out in the world where it belongs! He was also our first gallery exhibit at @1100florence in Feb 2017 !! And Aron Packer was one of our first friends when we lived to Evanston. What a magnificent collection of firsts to celebrate!
