Hey, creative dynamo! Let’s run away with our artists together this year! I have several creative getaways planned for us and there’s still room for you to join us. Lake Louise, Canada May 22- 26, 2017 Won’t it be fun to recharge and play at a Hogwarts-esque Chateau on a lake in Canada? I’m thrilled to […]
Paris, how do I love thee, let me count the ways… There are so many things to love about Paris, but I’ve chosen a few of the civic niceties that make the streets of Paris pleasant for me.
More to come in this vein. Vive Paris!
Going Places, 5×7 watercolor and ink 2013. This is one of the Paris paintings I sold in 2013. I always wanted to make a piece of metro ticket-related art and here it is!
I am so excited to go to Paris in May and June to work as an artist. I’m spending time in the next weeks getting clear on what that means for me. I worked with my art mastermind buddy @cassiacogger to explore my painting creative edge. I’m very excited to bring my art to its next level in just a few months.
Stay tuned for how you can be part of my upcoming Paris adventure!
Paris, oh Paris. I mourn for those who died that night, for those who were injured, and for every single person in the city who is experiencing the trauma of these events. I wish there were something I could do to make the pain go away but sadly, pain exists. It’s our work to reconcile […]

Over the twelve years it took to write Chasing Sylvia Beach, I developed a multi-pronged approach in order to depict a historical period accurately.
If you’re writing a historical novel, you may consider some of the seven methods I used to show Paris, 1937, in all her fading glory.
I was treated to a graffiti tour of Paris, culminating in seeing a piece come to life under Sid’s spray cans. The adventure was great fun. I captured a lot of footage and interviews; it was a great challenge to edit it down. Enjoy!
Well, we’ve tipped over into December and my duty to make some art every day is officially over. I did complete a daily creative act – mainly scribblings and jibblings in my Moleskine accordion notebook. I will not stop because November has passed. I find this the best way to pass time otherwise spent sighing […]
Xavier shares how to feel rich in a recession.
I took the plunge and joined in Leah Piken Kolidas’ Art Every Day Month challenge. It’s pretty self-explanatory, and I’ve been using the structure to make sure I do something in my Moleskine Japanese album every day. I’ll post the week’s adventures once per week, since the processing and posting of the art is a whole project […]
