Final Semester!

portfolio2015-14portfolio2015-21portfolio2015-11Spring 2015 is my last semester as an undergraduate. I’ll be (hopefully!) graduating in May with a BFA with a minor in Honors. That means that this semester I will have my BFA capstone and my Honors capstone. Woo! Right?

The above watercolors are from this semester. I just updated the life drawing portfolio section of the website and will be adding a couple to the watercolor portfolio section shortly. Tomorrow is my BFA capstone proposal presentation. Next week I will find out if my Honors capstone proposal is approved and if my BFA capstone proposal will be approved. Hopefully everything goes smoothly and I can get started on both projects soon.


2014 in review

This is pretty cool. I focused this year on making this site more of a website than regular blog. The following was provided by WordPress: The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 750 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 13 trips to carry that many people.

New Project and a Survey

I have something I’m pretty interested in. I’m starting a new project based on this thing I’m kinda crazy about. And I need your stories. The title of this survey is “Women’s Health Issues” and I need input from everyone across the spectrum- mothers, women who have never been pregnant, men who aren’t fathers, fathers, sisters, brothers, aunts, grandmas, uncles, grandpas, cousins, friends, and any other people who know people who have been born. I need stories and I need lots of them. I want to know what you’re familiar with as it relates to pregnancy, birth, and what happens after birth. The survey takes about 5-10 minutes. If you have any additional comments or stories send them to me at Share this survey with everyone and share your stories with me.

Here is the survey:

August 2014

August has been a bit of a hectic month. The Italy art show opened around the same time the semester started. I made a photography series to submit to the show. It consists of five photos taken near the town we stayed in. This semester I am studying life drawing, watercolor, (western) art history from 1855 to present, and women in both literature and visual art.

Life Drawing 2

A charcoal life drawing I drew during the third week of class.

Life Drawing 1

A charcoal and pastel palimpsest, also from the third week of class. Back in the day when scribes wrote on scrolls they would scrape the document clean to re-use it. It didn’t always get everything cleaned off so bits of the under layers could be seen. I saw the example in my text book and decided to try it out.

Italy Art

I spent five weeks in Italy. We practiced and created art nearly every day for five weeks. If we weren’t working on our pieces, we were studying art in its many capacities and thinking about our art. I added the watercolors, charcoals, oils, and prints from the trip to the portfolio section. Check ’em out.
