Celebrate Pride and Support Black LGBTQIA

Celebrate Pride and Support Black LGBTQIA in the month of June, and beyond! 

10% of proceeds from all prints in the Love Art Print Collection will be donated to BLMP (Black LGBTQIA + Migrant Project), which is dedicated to the liberation of Black LGBTQ migrants and all Black LGBTQ people. 

"BLMP envisions a world where no one is forced to give up their homeland, where all Black LGBTQIA+ people are free and liberated. We build and center the power of Black LGBTQIA+ migrants to ensure the liberation of all Black people through community-building, political education, creating access to direct services, and organizing across borders. Led by a directly impacted steering committee and staff and housed at the Transgender Law Center and, we build power, community, and knowledge in the U.S., while challenging the role the U.S. plays globally in creating the conditions that force us to leave our homes. BLMP is providing cash assistance to Black LGBTQ+ migrants and first generation people dealing with the impact of COVID-19."

Please take a moment to check out their website, where you can learn more and also donate to them directly. 

I'm adding this to my shop in June, but will continue to donate for the rest of 2020.

What does being
What does being "Bad at Art" even mean?

June 25, 2020

Were you ever told that you were bad at art? Or maybe nobody said that to you, but you just feel really clumsy any time you’ve tried it? Have you ever had an idea and then when you tried to draw or paint it, it looked nothing like you imagined? For many years, I told myself I wasn’t an artist. I didn’t go to art school. I wasn’t taking any art classes. I didn’t have “natural talent.”  I became frustrated whenever I would take a pen to paper, because I could never make what I saw in my hea...

June 22, 2020

A few months ago, after my regular day job abruptly ended due to COVID, I started to clean out my art and craft supplies. I came across a box of beads that I probably hadn't touched since 1995. It contained seed and bugle beads that I used to make jewelry from. The box was a mess, different bead colors and sizes mixed together, some also entangled in knotted bunches of thread. I set about sorting, thinking maybe I could sell them, and found something calming about this mindless task. But in t...
