This is going to be a difficult entry to keep concise, as there are so many beautiful threads that have been woven together to create this story that I can hardly separate them. The best way I can summarize this is to share that this studio has bestowed yet another gift to me, which is a confirmation that no matter how much I try to plot, plan, analyze and wonder about anything, life has a way of unfolding in more magical arrangements than I could have ever imagined.
I have been a fan of Sabrina Ward Harrison's work for many years, and despite the fact that we have been orbiting around one another - with a number of mutual friends between us - this entire time, we never met. Even though I always liked the idea of connecting with her, there was something that told me we would find our way to each other in our own way, and that this needed to happen as organically as possible. It was just a feeling, and I've honored it all these years.
Not long after I moved into my studio, certain events transpired and suddenly the urge to reach out hit me. So I did, and it turns out this was the moment that had been waiting for us all these years. Call it a strange confluence of available space and a connection that came right out of left field, bounced of five different walls and somehow landed in our laps. I can't explain it any other way.
Because of this new connection, I am very excited to announce that I will be hosting Trust the Mess, a two-day workshop with Sabrina Ward Harrison in my Venice, California studio next month. Sabrina and I invite you to join her in a magical space that has re-awakened my deepest creative energies and inspired me to move in many new directions. I am honored and delighted to be part of what I know will be an extraordinary gathering with Sabrina. All the details are below ~ we look forward to seeing you!
