  • Mood: Tired
In my last journal from 2013 I wrote about losing a job, being evicted from an apartment, and not knowing how I would get by or even survive. I am still alive. Josh and I had to live with his parents for almost a year, which was very difficult. Thankfully we moved into an apartment about six or seven months ago. My job title has been screen printer for over a year. Printing T-shirts is not nearly as easy as people may think. Hockey jerseys are even worse. I usually work six days a week. This does not leave me much time for art creation, but my job does keep a roof over my head and a little food in my stomach. I also keep my husband, a cat, and a dog fed. 

Almost eight months ago we were devastated by our dog Griffin dying. He was eleven years old. We moved into that new apartment without a companion. It didn't take us long to decide that we wanted to adopt a cat. We needed a companion, but it was too soon for the commitment and time needed to raise a puppy. A cat is more independent. Jasper has been with us for six months already, and we could not ask for a more wonderful cat. He is very intelligent, and always comes when he hears his name. He is acrobatic, loves to jump, run, and play, and is very entertaining. 

I did mention a dog too. After eight months, every day without a dog was agonizing. Griffin was still deeply missed, but at some point to continue healing from the loss of a dog, the heart and soul need to open back up and allow another dog's love in to begin filling the emptiness. A local rescue works hard to save dogs and puppies who do not receive the best care on remote northern reserves for Native Americans. Sabre and her litter mates were essentially saved from freezing to death this winter. We adopted her at about eight weeks old. She is about ten weeks old now, and she is an extremely smart husky shepherd cross! Josh and I house trained her in just a couple weeks. She knows sit, and loves to give high fives. She helps make every day worth living. 

When I have a little extra money, I also take fencing lessons a few times each month. I'm training with the German longsword, a double-edged blade used with both hands. Sword fighting is not all brutal bashing and slashing away with strength alone. Sword fighting takes technique, precision, and skill.

My mind and body are both much stronger thanks to fencing. I am happier and healthier these days, though there is always room for improvement. I still need to focus on make more time for art, but that is beginning to happen too. I've already created one piece this year with plans in the making for a couple paintings commissioned by a friend. 

Thanks for reading, and I hope to have more art created soon.

I've been taking fencing lessons for a few months now, using the German longsword, a two-handed, doubled-edged sword. I did a quick search of stock photography and didn't really see anything historically accurate. I was just wondering if such stock photos would be useful to anyone.

Photo: This rock was covered with layers of ugly graffiti. I wanted it to look better, so I decided to paint cardinals on the rock.

Background

My humble beginning took place in a small city in Alabama. Many of my family members are artists who inspire and encourage me. I also had a wonderful art teacher in high school.

In May 2010, I graduated from the University of South Alabama with a BFA in Graphic Design. My work has been shown at the Mobile Arts Council during “5” (2008 and 2010), during the 2nd Annual Art Exhibition at the University of Mobile (2009), and the Visual Arts Center in Punta Gorda, Florida for the 7th Biennial National Art Exhibition (2010).

I recently had a show at Calico Coffeehouse located in Thunder Bay, Ontario.

I'm a spirited being who has a great sense of integrity, but I'm also open-minded and enjoy a wider perspective on the world. I've had many people tell me that I'm very organized and always well prepared. I've also been told that I have stick-to-itiveness. I'm adventurous, like new challenges, and enjoy being creative.

I'm greatly inspired by the beauty of nature and like to spend a lot of time outdoors. I enjoy taking photographs of nature and animals. Other hobbies include hiking, camping, and canoeing. One of my goals for the future is to build an entirely self-sufficient, self-sustainable home that uses solar and wind energy.
