Just got back from Portland last night after a great experience this weekend.  Both Brad from Capricorn Bicycles and I displayed work together at a holiday show.    I spotted a number of my Camper Satchels from last year.  Thanks PDX!  You all are great!  www.portlandbazaar.com

  I recently biked out to a peak near Eugene with my sketchbook.  After climbing to the top I took some time to sit with my sketchbook, eat a bit of almond cake and draw out some ideas.

Last week I celebrated my 30th birthday with Brad at Smith Rock State Park in the high desert of Oregon.  It was quite lovely.


Opening night at Beam & Anchor

Opening night at Beam & Anchor

Yesterday Brad and I made a quick little road trip up to Portland for the opening of a new shop called Beam & Anchor.  I have a few backpacks and some lunch sacks on display. The trip began with a detour through the Hoyt Arboretum to see some trees.  The trails took us through a […]

Bringing home the bacon

Bringing home the bacon

Before I moved to Eugene a few months ago, I decided to sell my car.   I thought it would be difficult transporting supplies by bicycle but it has proven to be a piece of cake.  This morning I had to ride over to the leather shop to purchase a large hide of Latigo leather.  The […]

Taking off…

On Saturday we went to Cottage Grove, OR and rode the Row River trail.  It was dreamy.

At 7am I hiked up to Skinner Butte

It was an early morning for me.  Woken up by a hungry cat, I had already had my coffee by 5:45am.  I decided to ride my bicycle to the river and climb Skinner Butte.  At the top I overlooked all of Eugene on a rainy morning but for a sliver of time the sun peeked […]


Journey to a new home

Journey to a new home

      This last week has been exhausting, challenging, rewarding and exciting all at once.  I try to use this blog to only write about my current projects but the last week has been such a change that I thought it would be appropriate to bring people up to speed on my change of […]

This last weekend Brad and I filled up a large conversion van and headed down to Madison, Wisconsin for a bicycle show called Heartland Velo.  It was indeed a success!  It was a pleasure to meet so many dedicated makers and enthusiasts alike.

A few days ago I began my solo journey out east to Rosendale, New York for an artist fellowship at the Women’s Studio Workshop.  Here are a few photos driving down to Milwaukee from Minneapolis on a sunny Friday.
