I collect them, you know. Untold Stories.  It isn’t That they’re untold really, it’s that They aren’t written Down.  I started because I am a woman.  Our stories Are found inside our bones, behind Smashed window panes and broken Doors, in bottles…

AEDM 18: Synchronicity

Tammy | November 18, 2014 | 0 Comments
It started with AEDM 15 – Raven Dreams a World and tracking the lineage of a new artwork over the arc of 20 years.  A door or my eyes were opened but suddenly all kinds of synchronicity started dropping into my life. Then I tell a friend about Brooke…

Tammy | November 16, 2014 | 0 Comments

Art Every Day Month – Day 7 – Another Start

Tammy | November 7, 2014 | 0 Comments
Rather than finish yesterday’s, it is my nature to start yet something else new.  I LOVE starts.  I’m not so much taken by finishing.  Except with my art which won’t leave me alone until it is in the condition it wants to be in.  I find…
