Day 149 // Making Art Everyday in 2016

running blur. About 5 years ago I did a series of painting of blurry photos in the subway. I want to remind myself of the lack of precision and freedom, paint has sometimes.

Title Nine FitFest 2016 and Giveaway


I teamed up with Title Nine again this year to bring you an awesome giveaway! yay!

After having my first baby, Nora (who no longer a baby), I joined a mommy work out group. I felt so yucky with the baby weight and I just wanted to get back to my old self and have more energy.  I still go to that group. I realized over the last couple years how important it is to have a fitness component in my life. It helps me be able to have all the energy I need to in order to chase my kiddos and to also be a working artist. 

In having two kids, I realized how important a good sports bra is because between doing a high impact work out and going to the grocery store and the park. I can't just use a regular sports bra because it doesn't do everything I need it to do.   Title Nine helped me pick out the perfect one, for my body type and busy lifestyle. What I love most, is that it holds everything in while I run, jump, paint and chase.

Title Nine in Portland will be having their annual Fit Fest on June 1st and June 2nd.   You can call ahead and RSVP for a fitting which means no waiting!. 503.243.2220 .  If you aren't in Portland, you can still call and set up an appointment and find the store nearest you. 800.342.4448

This contest is for US residents only and it includes 1 free fitting with one of Title Nine's Bravangelists and 1 free sports bra. 

Good luck. Contest ends Tuesday May 31st.
Title Nine Giveaway! 1 Bra and 1 Fitting
