The Producer


One of my favorite ways to connect with people is through producing a show. It's a great reason to bring people together--art, music, talent. It's a wonderful excuse to text someone and just say, "Hey, how are you doin ??! By the way, want to collaborate ?" It's bridged gaps between my friends in far places and helped create new forever friends right here in ATL, when they otherwise may not have met each other.

If you didn't already know it, I believe that art can change the world.

Join us, as we raise support and awareness for Peace One Day this fall, on September 18th.

This is an open call for dancers, singers, actors, poets, and painters--you name it. Share your story of why YOU think peace is valuable.

Submissions due by July 1st.

love is blind

You never realize how many letters are in a word until you have to stamp out every. single. one of them.

Here's a portion of my poem "love is blind" from 2020.

This was my first time using a stamp pad for actual fingerprints, but it's immediately what I thought of, after I finished the lettering.

ink on paper, 8.5 x 11

Original available. $10.

Diggers Antiques Art Fair

One of the best things about having a booth is getting to walk around and talk to the other vendors. I love my new earrings from @leatherunlimited and so enjoyed meeting their sweet family. 💞

We had a great time at Digger's Antiques Art Fair in Fayetteville and can't wait for the next event.
