waxy heart
The opening page of my current sketchbook, covered in delightfully messy encaustic wax.

Well, that was quick!

My interview with Danny Gregory is now available for your listening pleasure. Sneak a peek at one of my old sketchbook pages and download the episode here. You can also subscribe to the podcast via RSS or iTunes.

I couldn’t help but notice that in the 33 minutes of conversation, I managed to mention bacon and doilies and use the word “magical.” I’m so predictable.

    Hello! I listened to your podcast – it was so brilliant. You are such a dear and I appreciate all that you had to say! I am a collage artist, but studying to be a web designer. I am so inspired by you. Thank you and I can’t wait to see the book!

    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
