back in Savannah



********************

And as another year has passed, I find myself back in my sweet Savannah. I'm so excited to return to this little creative hot spot where my friends, new and old, continue to inspire me as they aspire to higher and higher creative endeavors. Tomorrow, if you happen to be in town, come by and say hi at the Savannah Market Bazaar held downtown by the Robinson Parking Garage from 10AM-3PM. I will be featuring my new work from this year abroad in Korea as well as pieces from my jaunts to Bali, Bangkok and Hong Kong. In addition to framed pieces and cards, I've decided to make my art more wearable in the form of beautiful signed glass pendants. If you can't make it, please feel free to visit me at my etsy shop anytime.

While you're in the neighborhood, do pop around the corner and visit the annual Telfair Art Fair and check out the work 83 artists, including my friends, Lori Corbus and Scott Griffin.

Woman's Day Magazine: featuring "Blue Light"



I am one happy girl! One of my pieces, "Blue Light" (from my photos of Paris Collection) was featured in last month's online issue of Woman's Day magazine. Thank you Amy and ShopSCADfor helping me have my first real publication.

new thailand prints for sale






Sah Wah Dee Kah!

Please visit my Etsy Shop to purchase my new series of beautiful archival photo prints. A percentage of the proceeds will go to support the work of the Duang Prateep Foundation in their helping of Thailand's poor. It was an amazing trip and I hope to go back at the end of September after finishing up here in Korea. We will be working together to create a modern home accessories design line. I'm so excited for this newest challenge and I will be sure to keep you posted! Kab khun kah (thanks).

elephants for thailand's poor





Having just returned from an amazing service trip to Thailand, I am selling these thai silk elephants to support the Duang Prateep Foundation. As a guide with Lifeworks Inernational, I and 22 others learned a tremendous amount about the Thai culture and were able to help with the foundations various projects. From orphanages, to schools to rehab centers, DPF has been a support and voice for Thailand's poor. I'm looking forward to working with them in the near future to create a design line that will assist them in their goal of sustainable development. With the global recession, it's understandable that giving in many areas has declined. Please lend your support by visiting these sites and going to my Etsy Shop for these elephants and Thai photos. Half of the proceeds from the sale of these elephants will go directly to the foundation. Many thanks and kab khun ka!

a gift for my friends' anniversary

jewelry pouches on my etsy site



I love these colorful drawstring pouches. I use them for my jewelry and they make my presentation even more beautiful. I've been searching for something more unique than the organza bags (which are cute) and a little more substantial.

These small pouches make great gifts even greater. They also are lovely on their own. Please specify how many you want and whether you want the cotton, silk-sari, velvet or silk. The prices do vary so please specify when ordering. Thanks!

For right now, I am selling these as five minimum (per style) and they come in a variety of colors.

a room to call home







Fuschia, red and orange; quite the bright palette seen more in my photos than in my normal home decor. Roses that were dripping wet, heavy under the rain, I picked today. It is still gray and raining outside, but here, it is warm and cozy. In order to create art, one must have a space or, as Virginia Woolf wrote, "A Room of One's Own". I have that now here in Korea. In addition to the fuschia roses are the tawny coral ones given to me yesterday for Teacher's Day in Korea. Most of the objets d'art in the room are street findings with a little TLC and a fresh coat of paint. Several of the pictures are from my recent trip to Hong Kong placed in frames found dumpster diving. The comfy bamboo chair, the dresser, the baskets even some of the decor are courtesy of the great outdoors. One might call it a neighborhood collaboration.

valentine




on the cold stone

The sky, achingly blue, sits heavy
on the grass in its own green sharpness.
Stillness.

A heart is throbbing on a cold stone.
The eagle's eye spies it from miles above
and my mind's eye hears the hiss of
talons unsheathed.

Legs run, wings flap,
a race for the heart.
Feathers rippling,
white dress ripping,
wind whistling
in protest
against
the two bodies pressing
through the space
called air.

Crash!
Into whiteness.
The heart trembles on its gray slab.

Feathers explode with filmy gossamer
rolling in dust, the two bodies choking
in the struggle
reaching, clawing, beast and bird.

For what is man, but a beast
without her heart?
Do not think for a moment
it is the mind
that separates the two.

words

Knife in, knife out,
deftly stab between the ribs;
slide past the muscle
with your jabs.

The sharpness
in the edge
of your voice
bleeds me.

Quickly!
I roll over
unsheath the pink
of my tongue,
licking lips
against the whetstone
of my teeth.

Neither one of us has brought shields.
And there is much damage.

Honey tongue
proves a late surgeon.
