This installment of "Around Here" looks a little different than usual because I'm on the road. I snapped a few photos of what life has been like for the last few days. I hope you enjoy taking a peek! Also, I did a live periscope broadcast a few hours ago, where I flipped through my art journal and talked about some of the pages in detail. It's here if you want to watch it. It will be gone in less than 24 hours.... Thanks for stopping by! Read more →

I was absolutely delighted to spend a few hours at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney. Today I'm going to share the first two floors of art: the 20th Biennale of Sydney and selections from their permanent collection.

I enjoyed the whole museum, but it was some of the traditional aboriginal art that I really remember. I think those patterns and colors are making a distinct impression on me. I can't wait to see how... Read more →


Here's a peek at my recent visit to the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, Australia. We got the chance to make a little bit of art in the museum. They had an area where you could decorate a papier mache vase using oil pastels. I always find art museums make me want to create art, so it is particularly delightful when the museum actually facilitates the art making process. Thanks for stopping by! Read more →
