A few facts before I leave…I am adopted. I grew up in New Jersey. I went to @parsonsschoolofdesign. I have been married for 11 years, 9 of which I did not paint a single thing. I used to have a lifestyle blog. It was my way of avoiding painting for some unknown reason… I have three kids. My studio is a converted garage behind my house. A moderately famous poet/ painter used to live there, they did all the work. I can be pretty loud (aka very N.J.) at times. In the second photo you’ll see the first day my 5 month old dog did not try to eat my pastels since we’ve had him. His name is Winston. I also like beer and wine. Bring some to booth 21 at the Brooklyn fair. Lol. See you soon! ✌🏼#tuesdaytakeover #toaftakeover #theotherartfair #wirehairedpointinggriffon @jessicamatier
