Online “Radio Silence”

I realize that I’ve been neglecting my website for quite a while now. It’s not that I’ve been lazy (OK – maybe I’ve been kind of lazy about this site), but my neglect is also because I’ve been creating – a lot – in the field of both art and costumes. In 2014 I reworked a painting from my college days (in landscapes: First Breath, Dawn), and I completed three more paintings. However, the rest was all about the costumes: A while back, the muses threw an idea at me that I decided would be fun for CONvergence’s Masquerade in 2015. The past couple years (off and on) has been devoted to making it a reality. Once it’s complete, I will have made 9 (out of 12 total) costumes roughly based on the 18th century. I’ve been documenting the process. At some point, I’m hoping to add a costuming page to this site so I can share some “how-tos.”

More to come…
