This weekend was a big one. It brought the opening of my first ever solo art exhibit and an interview with Hilary Walker of Our Style Stories
. After featuring my home and studio on her blog last week, she followed it up with an interview for her Podcast. I've uploaded the interview to Soundcloud so you can listen below. Or you can go HERE
and get it at the source!
The first image of my son I ever saw was an MRI. My husband and I peered into the terrifying scan and saw a black sea of brain damage. This was our baby boy and he had suffered a stroke.
Want to hear more from Hilary's guests?
Of course you do!

And now to the art! It's been a joyful process to create the Neuroplasticity art pieces and self-producing an art event has been extremely educational. I'm so grateful to those who came out for the event. The art will be on view in Snider Plaza through the 26th of November, so if you're in the Dallas area, please stop by! All proceeds from the art sales go towards Charlie's Medical Fund. Learn more at www.HelpCharlieHeal.com
. And just for fun, here's a photo of Charlie, the little guy who inspired the pieces below:
Here's a note about the Neuroplasticiy collection:
Those first pictures of Charlie’s tiny beautiful brain were copied and reproduced and sent ahead to all of his specialists. Like an actor’s headshot in a program of a play we had yet to see, these images preceded him and shaped all of his first interactions with the world.
Creating a thematic body of artwork inspired by Charlie’s struggle and triumph in the wake of his brain hemorrhage, Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy has been a tangible way for me to take back those first images and process them in a dark room of joy rather than one of fear.
