The Role of the Female Artist: Creativity versus Motherhood

In the spring issue of RISD's (Rhode Island School of Design) new XYZ magazine for alumni, professor Jennifer Prewitt-Freilino's article "On Being Whole" really resonated with me.  See if you can google the magazine and find it.  I responded by emailing both XYZ and professor Prewitt-Freilino.  Both contacted me to thank me for my thoughts, and XYZ asked if my letter could be published.  I almost have an entire page of the new fall issue!  Go to page 4 to read it.

While You Were Out...

Yes, I know I promised to be on here more often.  It isn't that I don't have anything to say, it's just I've become recently obsessed.  Most of my free time online is filled with creating treasuries on www.etsy.com.  For those of you who are not familiar with treasuries, well, creating a treasury is like shopping without money-which is the state I find myself in most days in this pitiful economy.  It's like being a curator of a gallery without all the overhead.  If you're a creative person like me, it provides inspiration and at times, humiliation when you discover someone whose talent makes you want to give it all up and jump out the window. 

So for a moment (well, more like an hour or so) pretend like you have all the cash and credit you'll ever need.  Grab a warm cup of something, sit down and enjoy!  You can visit all my treasuries by clicking on this one (you'll see the link to my other ones). And you'll see that I do indeed have a serious treasury addiction!
