Hey love, I’m Rose. I’m so glad you’re here.
I’m an artist, mentor, and researcher.
I connect you your creativity by asking you to:
All you’ve ever needed is within you.
Though your world is filled with more information than humans are able to process:
you can show up powerfully even when things feel totally out of control.
I meet you online, here, to share:
Currently, my heart is pouring into my public art project, Document your Day.
Document your day is a series of 28 prompts to help creatives grieve ambiguous loss caused by COVID-19. Daily actions, such as taking a photo or journaling tasks, gives perspective and a sense of agency during stressful times. Ambiguous loss, a term coined by therapist Dr. Pauline Boss, is a grief that has no closure or particular ritual like a funeral with a body. I believe documentation can serve as a grief ritual for this era of COVID-19.
- I’m trained in art history because I believe why we create is as important as what we create.
- I’m second generation American.
- I’m a member of the National Genealogical Society and volunteer with the National Archives as a citizen archivist.
- I’m often left in tears and speechless after hearing the stories of sorrow and joy that my clients go through to get here.
- I’d choose salty over sweet any day.
- I believe in you. I really, truly, do.
