About

Hello there. Welcome!

If you're here, it's because you have come across one of my books or seen some of my art.

"What do you do?" I don't always love that question. It's hard to fit ourselves into boxes, particularly when we have a lot of interests and professional pursuits. 

To try to answer it, for work, I do a variety of things, most of them involving writing or making papercut illustrations. I also teach workshops, come up with recipes, and a little bit of documentary film production. This is what most people usually refer to as a "creative."

But just like I don't love the "what do you do?" question, I don't love the "creative" term, because we ALL need creativity, no matter what profession that we are in. Since this is something that I strongly believe, I write a monthly newsletter devoted to creativity called Creative Fuel, and also send out semi-regular creative prompts in what I call the Creative Fuel Challenge

Creativity ties all of my pursuits (personal and professional) together, and I get excited about sharing that thread with other people, because I also believe that investing in your creative health is an essential part of wellbeing

Part of my creative process also involves writing, and it also involves cutting paper. From 2018-2020 I made papercut illustrations of 100 different women called the Women's Wisdom Project. You may have also spotted my papercut illustrations in the recent edition of the iconic cookbook The Joy Of Cooking.

If you're here, it's because you believe in supporting independent authors and artists. Your Patreon support will do the following:
  • All of my newsletters continue to be free, open, and accessible to the public. 
  • Allow me to use my work to support social justice, women's rights, and environmental causes. 
  • Your support means that I can invest in the creative process of research, experimentation, messing up, starting over—these are all essential parts of this type of creative work. 

Thank you for being here
.

I think we need art now more than ever, and I am happy to have you on board.
