As my painting above reveals, writing is at the center of my artistic practice.
I am currently writing two children’s book series. The first series is called Little Enzo, and the first story for that series is titled Enzo and the Colorful Tracks. This set of stories explores how art connects animals and humans, and imagines animals as genuinely creative, in their own right.
The second is a humorous but tender series about mothers’ struggles to keep things together. This set of rhyming picture book stories centers familiar clichés that we moms use to alert our kids that mom is on the brink of a meltdown— and gives everyone permission to laugh about those moments.
I have recently completed what I’m calling a conceptual memoir. It might aptly be called an insult memoir, as well. This project uses the various definitions of an insult that was rumored to be applied to me, and frames a feminist discussion of work, ambition, performance, friendship, and jealousy. This book also explores the connections between views of women and views of animals.
