Share your Color Story

Share your color story - color stories speak to our past, are intertwined with our present and shed light on our future. They are stories of our ancestors, our childhood, our dreams, our surroundings, our wounds upon the earth and healing practices. They entwine our cultures and communities and bind us together and tether us to the earth.

Artists Supporting Artists

With Covid-19 running rampant and effecting the livelihood of fellow artists, makers, and creatives - I would love to offer a platform for artists to help each other through this crisis. If you are an artist who has goods that you sell up to $50, please share your store or links to your products here - as artists we don't always have the funds to purchase pieces or products, but hopefully sharing some lower cost items will encourage those who can to help support their fellow artisans. Please leave a link to your shop, description of your work and who you are so we can all get to know you and support each other.
