"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Daily Prompt Love <3 Doing v Being

10 February 2019 

Talked with a friend yesterday about the difference we need to remember:  between being a human doing and human being.  We’re driven to do, and we forget how much we need and should value rest.

Make art about rest, about the struggle to rest, about your restful place, about finding real rest.

Daily Prompt Catch-Up <3 Naming & Healing

12/5/2015

I haven’t put up a Christmas tree since 2011, the year both my husband and brother walked on to the next life. This year, I’m finally putting one up again, and covering it with crazy little angels I’ve been handmaking from clay and fabric for several weeks. I’m calling it my Healing Tree. Make art about healing.
