Art and Talking About Art

This weekend was a big one. It brought the opening of my first ever solo art exhibit and an interview with Hilary Walker of Our Style Stories. After featuring my home and studio on her blog last week, she followed it up with an interview for her Podcast. I've uploaded the interview to Soundcloud so you can listen below. Or you can go HERE and get it at the source!

Of course you do!

And now to the art! It's been a joyful process to create the Neuroplasticity art pieces and self-producing an art event has been extremely educational. I'm so grateful to those who came out for the event. The art will be on view in Snider Plaza through the 26th of November, so if you're in the Dallas area, please stop by! All proceeds from the art sales go towards Charlie's Medical Fund. Learn more at And just for fun, here's a photo of Charlie, the little guy who inspired the pieces below:

Here's a note about the Neuroplasticiy collection:

The first image of my son I ever saw was an MRI. My husband and I peered into the terrifying scan and saw a black sea of brain damage. This was our baby boy and he had suffered a stroke.

Those first pictures of Charlie’s tiny beautiful brain were copied and reproduced and sent ahead to all of his specialists. Like an actor’s headshot in a program of a play we had yet to see, these images preceded him and shaped all of his first interactions with the world.

 Creating a thematic body of artwork inspired by Charlie’s struggle and triumph in the wake of his brain hemorrhage, Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy has been a tangible way for me to take back those first images and process them in a dark room of joy rather than one of fear.

I have followed your blog for some time and am in awe of your energy, passion, and talent as a writer, artist, actor, decorator, and mother. My passion is our museum in Kansas City where I have been a docent for many years. Thank you for your constant inspiration.

Thank you so much for your note. I have lots of family in Kansas City and get up there about every year or so. I would love to come see your museum and meet you some day! Of which museum are you the docent?
