You may know that the month of January is named after the Roman god Janus. Janus had two faces, meaning that he could look back and look forward at the same time (nerd alert: I studied Latin in high school). It seems that even in the far past, when the months were acquiring their names, there was a sense that the depths of winter were the turning point of the year— a time to look back and a time to look forward.
Looking back at 2018, I am deeply grateful. The year was not without its personal challenges, but art-making and growing my small art business continued to be a joyful experience. I had the opportunity to connect with so many fantastic people who have been enthusiastic and supportive of everything I’ve been doing, and I was lucky enough to have the time and space to push myself as an artist. I have learned so much.
The image above draws from some highlight moments on Instagram—meeting people, making art, and seeing it on other’s walls.
Looking forward, I am working on both new prints and new paintings, which I hope to share soon. I’m also working on other opportunities to show my art and to collaborate with others. Stay tuned for more on these—better yet, join my collectors circle to be the first to know.
