Hi everyone. 

I really love to write. I do! For several years I stretched my mind and crafted words to express and translate what was in my head and what was happening in the studio.

But I don’t make the time to write these days,  aside from captions for social media posts on my Instagram and Facebook pages. So, I will give it a go and take the time to write and keep a studio journal here in the long form blog varietal.  (little voices in my head battle out with “just write, fool!” and “but what if it’s lame?” lol)

are you tired of algorithms? Do you have time to read something longer than a caption? Maybe Instagram and Facebook are enough?

I will try to write at least once a week about what I’m thinking about and doing in the studio and beyond. a fresh start.

Please let me know what you think in a comment below.

OK. Thanks!
