Join me for a little conversation now and then, as I explore my own authenticity while also helping you discover yours. I will share my own life path of not knowing I was an artist to the very surprising discovery that indeed, I must be one. Though not the usual kind. This, plus my behind-the-scenes career in fabric fashion retailing gives me a unique perspective I want to share with you. The journey through my mind can be quite entertaining! Hang on, it may be a wild ride through nature, heritage, popular culture, and all things tactile….. A high point for me would be that I inspire artistry in you and together we create an awesome community to explore our similar passions.

Pandemic Pause

Pandemic Pause

I am not going to make my self imposed 2020 goal to post a new essay on April month end, but Business is NOT As Usual, so I forgive myself. In fact, it even seems appropriate. I feel many emotions and burdens from the 2020 Pandemic public health and economic crisis...

Sheltering in Place

Sheltering in Place

This phrase is now lodged in our consciousness. Here we are. Put in our place. I wrote the little piece that follows, Finding my Place, a long while back (and didn't post it for reasons explained in my previous Phento post ;/ Timing???....) I remembered it this week...
