Hard Things.

Lately I’ve stepped away from social media, and had to put my phone away more than normal (both things that are good to do from time to time anyway!). I’m going through some very Hard Things in my personal life right now. I’m not in a place yet to talk about it, either in desireContinue reading “Hard Things.”

Some British Paints.

Oh gosh. My time here in the UK is not over yet, but this place has changed me somehow. There are things I didn’t know I needed to see, things I didn’t know I needed to feel – or experience. Maybe it’s just that it’s my first solo trip in so long, and after theContinue reading “Some British Paints.”

I believe so strongly in the power of our words to build each other up & give life. So I will keep writing Blessings, because I just believe they matter. As Pride month draws to a close, these words rose to the surface of my heart. Much love to you, wherever you find yourself onContinue reading “A blessing for Pride Month 2022”

A poem for me – and maybe you, too.

In tough times (especially), I believe we all need to do what moves us. For me sometimes it’s art, sometimes it’s cycling, sometimes it’s writing. (Sometimes all three in one day.) I wrote this because I needed to, for me. Maybe you need to hear it too. Sending love, my friends. PS – God isContinue reading “A poem for me – and maybe you, too.”

Sheridan Sharing

Recently – for Pride month – I was invited to share my story at my alma mater, Sheridan College. Now, this is meaningful for me on multiple levels. Sheridan was a school I never thought I would get into, or remotely succeed at. But I did. And I’ve had a busy animation career since graduatingContinue reading “Sheridan Sharing”

I’m going to England!

Friends! I’m so excited to be going to the UK for a working trip for most of July! I’ve never been, but it’s always been on my artist bucket list. I can’t wait to peruse the streets, sample the fish and chips, and try to become invisible sketching at cafes! I’ll be primarily in theContinue reading “I’m going to England!”

A Blessing for you, on International Women’s Day

HERE TO QUEER Podcast

I was recently invited onto Julie Rodgers’ new podcast “Here to Queer”! We had a lovely conversation about queer books for kids and teens & why they are important. We also chatted about the writing process, since both of us wrote a memoir (her book Outlove, mine Still Stace) – how do you decide whatContinue reading “HERE TO QUEER Podcast”
