I wake up every morning in an anxious panic. Three more days until my show. Maybe I'm making it out to be a bigger deal than it is. I've never actually done anything like this before. But as we inch closer it feels more like a Broadway production than a gallery walk and doubting myself is only a small part of my anxiety. I didn't ever think I would show my art. To be honest I never even considered it to be art. More of a compulsion really. I'm outside with my kids so much of time, finding something to do with my hands while they play was involuntary. I'm overwhelmed with feelings going into this. Mostly, it's the 900+ guests that have bought tickets and will be attending the show that make me want to cry and vomit at the same time. I'm not so good in crowds, and certainly not good at being in the spotlight. So I go back outside into the forest to calm my mind and heart. While rummaging around in the undergrowth I found the most perfect, teeny, tiny snail shell just resting on a mushroom. As if to say just to me because I'm the only person in the world that will ever be here for this moment, "Everything is as it should be, right here and now."
Thank you Forest, you are my medicine. .
As should be pretty obvious, I'm totally new to instagram and have no idea what I'm doing. I joined because it seemed like the best way to take advantage of the fact that I was showcased as a #rawartist at the ENVISION show last night. Had a blast! #rawseattleartists#rawartistshowcase
BRUH. First off I am beyond thankful @rawartistscleveland allowed me to be apart of this amazing event, so many talented and amazing people in one place. Second thank you to everyone that showed love. To anyone who bought a ticket, I love you. To all my friends that showed up to support me, I love you. To all the great people who bought something from me I love you. To all the amazing people who stopped by to admire my art and let me know how talented they think I am, I love you. I appreciate that more than anything. And last and furthest from least @kn1088 I love you. Without her I couldn’t have done any of this she was the best manager, prepper, saleswomen, coach and cheerleader a new artist could ever ask for. Thank you everyone!!! Short video coming soon!!!!
From the good news we announced yesterday, we would like to share more about story behind each piece that you will experience and shop in the event. Starting with this plate. This plate is a sister plate of one on RAW artists event flyer. It is bigger and it was the first plate that is successfully made with perfect donut ring. The glaze colors were intentionally chosen in contrasted pastel tone. What is unintentional was how pink and blue act like they don’t know each other . However, we still love this plate much because we allure in unexpected outcome. .
