PenAccess is happening
I am ready to launch this exciting program bringing good art supplies to at risk youth and their families. Although this is a separate project from my personal artist practice, it is interwoven into everything I am. I just wanted you to know that this is happening- Your support has be grounding. With my work as a grief nanny on the decline, I am able to reach out to broaden my workshops. If I can't pay my rent, then I need to stay put and work a nanny 9-5 job. Hopefully this year, I will be able to act on my calling.

Art requires sustenance. Patreon strives to bring this for us. I am grateful for this. I'll need help using Patreon more strategically to make this happen which is difficult for me since I have so many things going at the same time. But the amazing part is that they are all blossoming just in time. The one thing that remains true in the end of the day is that I need to paint to even function in this world. And with all that I've been doing, I am glad to say that I have come back to my brushes for self care. And it heals. And it makes it possible for me to get back out there and work with the raging child, or bring beautiful inking supplies to the new homeless shelter. Here we go!
