leveling up

Each year, for the past a lot of years, I take a self portrait. Which doesn’t feel very surprising to say, given that I do a lot of self portraiture already. This year was special though, because I had a fun realization about myself. That I believe I do this ritual, of a yearly portrait on my birthday, because I grew…

harvest moon

September 2022, The Farm Many moons have already past since the Harvest moon, but I still want to keep a record of it here. It was a lovely one for me. Full of exploration and foraging, a moon truly about the harvest. I’m currently benefitting from how I spent my time in September. During my time exploring the swampy woods that…

peach cobbler

kitchen witchery September, the Farm About year ago I sent a text to my mom asking for her peach cobbler recipe. I have fond memories eating this as a kid and I really wanted to make it just as she did. She sent back a picture of her handwritten recipe. I will treasure that recipe for the rest of my life.…

a fair autumn day

poetry a fair autumn day On a fair autumn day With cotton ball clouds in an azure sky Slow your breath To match the pace of those clouds Everything will decelerate and Sway with the yellow gold foliage Who still cling to their inky arteries Suspended above they twist and pull Stop to revel in the delight  That comes with observing…

can’t stop, won’t stop

life update part 3 2pm, the Farm It seems natural that a move in one area will create ripples and the need for change (movement) in others. During the first half of 2022 I focused a lot on photography. Specifically portraiture, and it was such a joy to flex that muscle. Since I’ve moved, and I’m splitting my time between Harrisburg…

living in two places at once

life update part 2 4pm, the Farm While saying that I’ve moved is accurate, it’s not really the whole story. Sure, my bed and work is in Cambridge Springs at the moment, but Harrisburg still has a large piece of my heart. There are people there that I think of and miss daily. So I imagine myself as someone who claims…

not enough time, let me sum up

life update part 1 3pm, the Farm The shortest way to say this, I’ve moved. It’s the 19th or 20th move I’ve made in my 42 years on this planet. You’d think I’d be a pro. I am not. This move was both anticipated and a surprise, all at once. I knew I’d have to move out of my apartment because…

spring is ridiculous

Recently I found myself on a walk, with my camera and the glorious spring awakening was unfolding right in front of me. These are a few of those shots. I’m so in love with them! They are reminders to be in the moment and to appreciate, to savor that moment. Below is the story (ramble) of that day. In my print…

Thoughts on Visualization

Sometimes the only way I can get anything done is by laying in bed and visualizing what I want to accomplish. Depending on what I’m working on, this can take months. Repeating this laying in bed and imaging how I’d like to do things. Different scenarios, different options, all floating through my mind being weighed and judged for viability. If this…

rainbow nostalgia

I’ve long had a thing for rainbows. In school my notebooks got covered with doodles and those doodles often got rainbow-fied. Last week I drew an anatomical heart, another thing I’ve had a thing for since high school days, as a quick little exercise. Combining the two things, rainbow and heart, was a real nostalgia kick. I remembered the heart from…

about me

Hi, I’m Crissy. Previously I did a lot of random jobs (some successfully, none happily) until life the universe and that crazy thing called a pandemic gave me an opportunity, now I am full time artist. I’ve kept an online presence for the better part of 2 decades, you’d think I’d be good at it by now.
