Welcome to my Substack (previously Field Notes on Flourishing) ⊹₊ ⋆.

I aim to send out a newsletter every other month or quarterly to share where I’m at in my practice—things like what I’m working on, planned exhibitions or editions for sale, how I’m working through creative challenges, and things that are inspiring me or have been on my mind.

I value slowness, connection, and authenticity and have found less and less joy in trying to create and connect under the thumb of social media algorithms. My newsletter is a virtual home for snippets of my life and artistic practice that aren't shared anywhere else as part of an ongoing attempt to connect more authentically with my community. Welcome in!
