Pinky Swear Series

Hi friends,

Been sober now for 15 months.  I can say it has its perks.  I don’t wake up in the bathtub wondering what I made myself the night before.  I have on the other hand gravitated towards different things.  Like being an adult who pays their bills on time.  Studio time and work.  I’m still that Pippy Long Stockings type, rough around the edges don’t forget with sauce on the side.   I have grown a tougher calis through the years but I realize that maybe the more I see the truth in things even though as harsh as it may be I can start to grow in a different way then just push others towards the door.  Being vulnerable is scary.  Like I’d rather hide scary.  I’d rather Play with fire, spiders, lions and snakes than be vulnerable.  

I am going to start by asking different questions to change my beliefs about the world.  Questions that create vision and support to others.  Working on me being more aware and asking people in a the moment instead of thinking about it.  Get messy in 2017. 

 Grandpa Grose was a cussing sailor whose favorite swear word was you fumble finger cock sucker. He would cuss and swear up a storm making his war models. I can’t say I entirely want to be more like him but I want to test out his roughness.  He was a World War 2 vet.  He managed the men of men he had to be tough.  If you weren’t a brute you weren’t really a man.  He learned a lot in 4 years than a man could learn in a life time.  

 See he was 6ft 4 maybe 5 but to me he was a giant.  His hands were huge.  So how in the hell did he make these models by hand many from scratch. The tiny little pieces the size of my 5 year old pinky nail.  A real creative go for it kind of man.  He has models he’s made across the country in museums. Crass & ballsy the type they don’t make anymore.

Karmic Upheaval


Friday the 13th is a magical day and number.  Somehow the attraction to something others are afraid gives me this sense of ohhhh ahhhh.  Naughty girl!  Although digging deeper into the real meaning of Friday the thirteenth why does it have this power over the western culture.  Freyja a goddess associated with love, sex, beauty, fertility, gold, seiðr, war, and death. The number 13 is considered sacred.  

FRIDAY THE 13th 

Join Jesy G and 4 other female artists for “karmic upheaval”!  Ancien is a local bike shop accross from “woman made gallery” on Milwaukee Ave.  Chicago IL! We will have music and drinks available along with Art for sale.  Come experience a group of delightful women and their creation.

Artists team up with El Rescatè 

Artists team up with local community El Rescatè

I greatly appreciate this picture!  

 Putting together an Artisan  Market that people want to go to and support. “Bull to Bear” is a fundraiser to help not  only raise funds but raise awareness to El Rescate.  Being the only LGBTQ centers for homeless youth in the mid-west located in Humbolt Park.  With the neighbor hood changing and cooking I wondered how many of us in the community really knew about it.  I fell in love with the mission but most of all the community of assistants and mama bears in charge & involved. 

There will be over 18 artisan crafters

Over 18 different beautiful raffle items and fucking killer packages that I can’t wait to announce.
