getting ready to launch


It's almost time.

Sunday, I am re-launching the Studiofemme site as the first step towards making this big shift in my work that has been gestating for most of this season (and truthfully, for most of this last year).

I'm giving you a sneak peek here because I adore you. There are so many exciting things to share! 

My biggest initiative with Studiofemme will be to connect women with their passionate activism and service. As s many of us already create things and do work in the world that is of service, I'm excited to help take this a step further and help create offerings and conversations that inspire others to use their work as a platform for broader social activism and impact, all based on what they are passionate about. 

All my workshops and sharing will have a foundation of service - collecting goods or energies to put towards bigger community issues and needs. The collaborative blog will be hosting awesome and inspiring guests, many whom you might know and many new people I can't wait to introduce you to.

Jamie Ridler will be sharing soon about her Give A Girl A Journal initiative.

Kimberly Wilson will be by this spring to talk about her Pigs & Pugs project.

Jenny Doh is writing a piece about her art and activism - and hopefully about the book she is writing about this very topic!

I'm in that phase where I have a million ideas and am making loads of new connections in broader communities, like connecting the dots in that beautifully magical way where one thing leads to the next. It feels so exciting! This thing definitely has a life of it's own. 

Also, I'm hosting a giveaway this week as part of Sunday's launch... if you want to get in early on the goodies (a sweet piece of original art and some Studiofemme swag!), you can leave a comment here and you will be entered times two! 

Thank you for all the cheering on and support of my work, and if you know of any awesome creative activists I need to connect with, please do share.

Here's to Sunday's celebration!

Our next make-your-own card adventure is finally here! Inner Alchemy Collage: Build A New World Deck (online) is an artful exploration of language, learning, inspiration, and collaboration, that delves into important ideas around activism and systems of oppression.

The Cost of Selling Belonging

As someone who use to sell belonging and believed I was creating something universally magical , I now have fresh eyes on the harm that I once caused. I understand what can (and was) incredibly healing and impactful for some, was at the same time excluding, marginalizing and undervaluing others. First, to anyone who ever felt like they did not belong to anything I created because they were unable to afford it or felt like they did not have the social capitol to join -  I am sincerely sorry for not seeing you sooner .   To our entire creative community as a whole, I urge us all to think about belonging in new and equitable ways, and to do the work of dismantling these hierarchical structures that leave so many people out of the circle. We all deserve to have access to creativity and belonging, and I'd go so far as to say both are fundamental basic human needs and rights. Selling belonging can look like... Creating spaces and experiences that can only be accessed by buying in at one,

what's in a name?

It’s May 14, 2020 and I’m on a transnational call with a social worker and translator of the SOS Children’s Village offices in South Korea. It’s 7pm my time and 9am the next day in Korea, which adds to the surreal quality of the moment. It is my first long distance call following my inquiry with the organization documented to be my first place of entry into the system, found in my Korean records (the acquisition of which is an incredible story in and of itself). It was July 21, 1972 and I was 5 months old. It’s a small miracle the organization still exists, and an even bigger blessing that they took such time and care in searching for information and to talk it all through with me in person. I try not to cry as the call connects. What I learn is a lot of small details about that fateful evening which amount to nothing traceable, but still feel like huge missing pieces of my life. I was left near the entrance around 7pm under a small tree, wrapped in a blanket with only a name scribble
