Some Social Media Highlights

The blog has definitely been an important component of reflecting on and then proceeding with my artistic journey. But I usually turn to the blog when something definitive happens, after giving it thought. I don’t usually litter it with the random thoughts and inspirations that occur in daily life. And I think those are an important part of the process too! So, with that in mind, you could say my social media pages are like little sub-blogs.
