I am very excited that my work, Drive, won first place at the Visual Art Exchange's For the Love of Art auction.
They said, "You have a blue guitar,
You do not play things as they are."
The man replied, "Things as they are
Are changed upon the blue guitar."

Heavy fog. Heavy thoughts.
We have had the loveliest foggy mornings around here (Raleigh, North Carolina) lately. My husband and I have been lucky and were able to catch a bit of the foggy bliss before work yesterday and today. This photo is from a field just down from our house. What a wonderful start to the day.
So thrilled that my piece "we are like flies stuck in honey" was juried in to the Visual Art Exchange's Image Exhibition. Juried by Edna Cardinale, Director of the photography-focused Julie Saul Gallery.
we are like flies stuck in honey is 9 fuji instax photographs, and not shown in the photo above, taped directly to the wall with torn masking tape. For me it's about all the beautiful things in life that are fleeting and maybe they are more precious because of it.
Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. - Rilke
Eno River in Hillsborough, NC. January 2015. iPhone capture and edit.
Loveliness of impossible instant film and vintage Polaroid sx-70 camera. Imperfect. Perfect.
I'm so excited that this work has been accepted into the juried Visual Art Exchange's 26th Annual N.E.W. Show! Exhibition dates: September 4-24, 2015. First Friday reception: September 4, 6-10pm. Location: Visual Art Exchange, 309 W. Martin Street, Raleigh, North Carolina.
Busy with life and taking care of an aging parent, but found an hour in the morning fog yesterday with my iPhone.
This shot is blurry. On purpose. I have a slow shutter app on my iPhone and it gives me the most delicious blur. To my eye, blur is mystery. A reminder of of our lives in constant flux. Blurred images look like pieces of a dream. Fragments of thought. Things I'm not quite sure about. Blur draws me in.
I am thrilled to be invited to participate in Crossroads, a photography exhibition at Litmus Gallery in January 2015.
Crossroads: Organic intersections of stumbled upon wonder
Teresa Stephens & Tricia McKellar are two photographers who ran seemingly parallel lives until recently when they were lucky enough to be at the same place at the same time and started chatting. Women, mothers, spouses, daughters, friends, artists; viewing the world through ever changing lenses, knowing that each step brings something new. Not all crossroads are monumental and heralded, but every one impacts who we are and where we are headed.
Exhibition opening Friday, January 2, 6-9pm, Litmus Gallery, 312 West Cabarrus Street, Raleigh, NC 27601, tel (919) 571-3605. Exhibition hangs through January. Gallery open by appointment.
