10 Things About Being An Artist Married To An Artist

Ron and I did a Q&A for Muddy Colors - 10 Things About Being An Artist Married To An Artist - We've heard that weird myth over the course of our lives: "artists shouldn't marry another artist", and I recently read a comment on FB that expressed that same notion, even saying that they advise artists not to marry other artists. I thought it would be good timing to use this as a talking point for a MC article because it happens to coincide with our anniversary. :)

8x8", graphite on encaustic board with digital sepia
This drawing will be included in ArtOrder's The Journal - this is one of the pieces in my two-page spread.  My pages will have a combination of drawing, painting, and quotes, and this is one of the elements on those pages.
The Journal is "a collection of masterful international artists, from various genres and industries, creating the ultimate art journal."
I'm honored to be a part of it.

Artist Inspiration - Herakut

"I can share with you my memories of freedom, but how to get there we all need to figure out on our own."

Posted a new article on - featuring the work of graffiti artist duo Herakut.
Artist Inspiration - Herakut
I am moved by their art every time I see it, even if I've seen it many times before. If I had to describe it in just one word, I think that word would be “truth”.
