An expat in my own hometown.

April 22nd, 2013 · No Comments

This was not my plan. I had a great product I was developing in London. I was going to stay there, build the business, become wealthy and eventually a dual citizen. Somewhere around the time my U.K. Visa expired the plan started to de-rail. I came back to the States (at the suggestion of her […]

Identity update

May 22nd, 2012 · No Comments

After the purge of words on my previous identity art, I posted a question on Facebook for my friends to contribute positive verbiage in order for me to reconstruct a view of myself that was healthy. I took these words and quotes and painted over the sad, painful imprints of my past.

Stranded on a Sandbar, or I need a Holiday

February 25th, 2012 · No Comments

I haven’t been writing much. In Mexico on my first real grown-up holiday EVER, I realized that I’ve been hanging onto my sandbar. In the ocean, but not in the swim. Calculating and pondering my next route, but I hadn’t quite taken the plunge. Now I am back in London (and it is sunny!) and […]

Identity reprint

August 1st, 2011 · No Comments

After my MA, I realized that the constant thread through much of my fine art and through the projects for my MA was a concept of identity and community. My tethers to different communities have faded and others become strong bonds. My definition of family has shifted and grown to include a multitude of people […]

I put on pantyhose for this?

April 26th, 2011 · No Comments

Thursday afternoon’s presentation seemed to be going well enough, though I should have picked up the signals. After years in business, I have a minimum threshold of money on the table before I can be bothered to put myself through the torture of contorting myself into my expensive, but fairly effective, legs of Lycra. The […]

The Camellia Commitment

April 7th, 2011 · No Comments

It isn’t that I am a commitmentphobe, it is just that when I do commit to something, I take it seriously. I don’t know when to quit even when the situation is no longer healthy or in my best interest. So it was a surprise to me that even though I love London and have […]

I Pour Tea

March 11th, 2011 · 2 Comments

So why don’t ya hire me? I just completed another 9 pages of essays, CV, and information for a job application. That doesn’t count the form I filled out as well. I have a CV that is completely stripped of all my accomplishments and half my work that I used to submit for design jobs. For […]

It’s a blue, blue, blue, blue world

January 26th, 2011 · 3 Comments

Years ago, during the period in my life that became known as “my tragic exile” I briefly returned to my hometown to live. My Mother’s response to any crisis in my life was always to tell me “Just come home and live in one of my rental houses.” One day my response changed from “I […]

Just another American cheerleader

November 17th, 2010 · 4 Comments

I was watching yet another video about job searching, this one on the elevator pitch. The woman with the bad bleach job was explaining how it is done. “You don’t want to sound like some American cheerleader.” She said derisively. Great. I thought my time on the field was well spent. I even did a […]

A red exclamation point!

July 28th, 2010 · No Comments

There it was. A big red exclamation point. An email from my sister on a Sunday morning. I had gotten up, checked email, made coffee and then went back to the comfort of my bed to watch BBC News. I had hoped it would lull me back to sleep. When I finally gave up trying […]
