A peek at a few pages from my journal from Australia. I got really into sketching locations during my travels. I used a blank-paged Moleskine notebook, whatever pen I had on me, and my MINISTAFF colored pencil set—I highly recommend this for travel art!
For my December art column for Moonshine Ink I interviewed three North Tahoe locals who make winter apparel: Carrie Cameron Hall, who makes ski jackets in her LetsGetBagged line; Ethan Rollins of Local Knits (see video); and Brandon Douglas of Nolan Apparel who makes ski mittens and just opened a Truckee storefront. Read my December column online here or pick it up on stands in Tahoe all this month.
For my art column in this month’s Moonshine Ink, I covered three local exhibits and art finds I’m excited about, from the Phyllis Shafer show at Stremmel Gallery to a new mural at the Glenshire Elementary playground. Read it here!
Got sawdusty last month for my art column… check it out on stands and online in Moonshine Ink.
For my latest art column in Moonshine Ink I covered the topic of travel journaling. Local artist Eva S. Nichols provided some great advice & I put it into practice on my Galapagos trip. Read it here: Seeing What You See.
My art column for Moonshine Ink this month covers the wellness benefits of art. Some local workshops are tuning into this special connection that art brings us, and I’ve had fun researching this by taking a few workshops (watercolor, drawing, collage) that feel a lot like therapy! Read my art column here.
My latest column for Moonshine Ink, “Art Is a Highway,” has a roadside theme as I came across quite a few cool projects that use the road as an audience, impetus or way of existence: The Nevada Museum of Art is showing a vintage neon sign exhibit, Sierra Nevada College recently purchased a Streamline trailer that’s functioning as a mobile gallery space, and San Francisco artist Jane Kim is working on a series of Highway 395 murals (part one of her Migrating Mural) to raise awareness about big horn sheep migration routes.
