on awareness and little things

I had only one full day off this week i had lots of errands to run, just basic day to day stuff. And had one unrelenting thought in the back of my mind: i have to stop or at least slow down and enjoy this sunny day with yellow leaves, i will be locked in […]

Self-portraits galore

Posted on Nov 17, 2013 in drawing, self-portrait

Now that I have a rhythm going on I can talk about this. In order to keep drawing, me and my studio mate, Kasia, decided to do a self portrait every day. It’s not too strict, it’s ok if you miss a day, but you gotta keep doing it, instead of feeling guilty for a […]

Daily Photo

Posted on Oct 20, 2013 in photography

      I got a new toy – new phone, and started to take a daily photo, usually on my lunch break or whenever. It’s just so easy, nothing bulky to carry. I’ve been doing it for a week, but it did a great deal of good to me. Noticing colour, light,  texture and composing shots […]

Quiet: the Power of Introverts

Posted on Sep 27, 2013 in reading

Just read the book by Susan Cain http://www.thepowerofintroverts.com/ Like your true introvert,  I tend to read with a pen, unless I forget about it and get distracted (like an extrovert). This sentence pretty much sums up where I am currently on introversion-extroversion scale. Right about in the middle, with a lean into introversion, although Susan […]

Posted on Jun 6, 2013 in fiber, india

A little while ago I have finally finished working on this piece inspired by my journey to India: I am quite happy with it, it came together pretty intuitively, although it took a while to get all the pieces of the puzzle fall into place. The grey background is silk cotton blend dyed a while […]

As of yesterday, and as if I didn’t have enough on my plate, I joined this class at Camp Pikaland. For the next 6 weeks I will be doing a surprise assignment each week and see what comes out of that, and document my progress here. I hope for an enlightening journey! So far the […]

Afternoon at the Fiber studios and Other Important Things

Posted on Apr 7, 2013 in apprenticeship, dance, fiber, india, wolves

I think I never mentioned before that I will be apprenticing with my former instructor for Fiber classes, Laura Vickerson. Yesterday on a foggy afternoon I visited her in her studio. I brought in some of my current work to show, and showed the galleries from this portfolio website. I was hoping for some direction […]

Posted on Mar 19, 2013 in artscan

Since last summer I have been a part of a cooperative for artists called ArtsСan (thank you Alexandra! This is how random encounters in the right place and right frame of mind turn into something meaningful). I participated in a few events with them, and today was my first board meeting with everyone. They tried […]
