Artwork / 2015
After 23 years as an Oregonian, in 2015 I moved with my partner first to Virginia and then to New Jersey. For more about why we left Portland check out this art I made about it, and for more about how I ended up a Jersey girl there’s this video summary of 2015.
In April, I started writing for Professional Artist magazine. This gig was very important to me as it validated my writing in a new way—by paying me for my words for the first time ever. I enjoyed writing for the magazine for a few years, but I ended up quitting because of the publisher’s unethical behavior.
In July, I participated in the Rencontres Mondiales du Logiciel Libre, a copyleft conference in France. My presentation explained how to free your work while making a living with your art, and it is based on my book, You Share Good. The talk was in French, but there is an English version of it here.
In October and November, some of my work was included in Implicit Bias, a group show that was exhibited at multiple locations in DC, including the Joan Hisaoka Healing Arts Gallery and the Takoma Park location of Busboys and Poets.
