Draw On My Dress
Next week I’m headed to Art Basel Miami to check out the largest art fair in the country and spearhead a project I’m calling Draw on My Dress.

Scary Isn’t Always a Good Thing
I’m feeling very lucky and grateful to have survived Sandy without losing power, water, or going hungry. About a block away there’s no power, so I know I’m taken care of in comparison to others in the city.
