It must have been something I blocked out, or something I just got used to. Maybe I was just trying to be polite or assumed they were dumb so I just kept my mouth shut instead of getting nasty about it? "Your work is great! But you know what you should do..." is something I have heard from a ridiculous number of men with regard to my art-making practices and anything to do with my career. I guess I really did just get used to it. In fact, this was how they made conversation.
Not only did we get a new website for Elephant Stone but I made a little promo video for the upcoming release of Heartworm written by my husband, Ben Vendetta. It's about a guy working in the music industry during the thick of the Britpop scene. His wife runs off to join a cult, but he's sort… Continue reading New Video: Heartworm by Ben Vendetta
If you ever wanted hear me blab about the music industry, art, Joan Crawford, my awesome husband, and why after everything I've been through medically I just suck it up (despite a cat sitting on my catheter bag), well then, you are in luck! I was invited to co-host on motivational talk show LoLoKnows earlier this week. Fair… Continue reading Motivational Talk: Radio Guest on LoLo Knows

I'm glad these originals are going to some good homes and I'll be getting them out over the next few weeks to everyone. Congrats to Margaret McCartney, you won the framed acrylic/watercolor of "Hoodlum" and… Continue reading Winners + Thanks
I've been told I need yet another surgery. This time, a rod is to be put through from my ball socket of the femur down through to almost the knee. It appears my leg is about to break in pieces and the radiation I withstood to soften the cancer has taken its toll. I'm of… Continue reading Only One Leg To Stand On
The other week I almost slipped on a mason jar rolling around on the floor in a dark club. I found 3 total on the floor that night! It was the one night I decided to go out without my cane, btw. I picked the jars up so no one else would fall on them. It… Continue reading I Almost Slipped On A Mason Jar
I can tell you that Tina the Queena is looking after it just fine. I guess the new couch is just a glorified cat bed because she hasn't left it in weeks.
One of the great things about my husband is that he is sort of a dandy; he can dress well and has an eye for design, generally speaking. He wouldn't be caught dead in cargo shorts (or any shorts for that matter) and he can't stand furniture that looks like it belongs in a dorm… Continue reading Sofa Problems
A lot has happened, and for various reasons, I cannot tell you everything in full detail. My surgery was botched and this was a surgery no where near as complex as the one on my leg. Basically, I spent all week in the hospital (came home one night then was back via the ER) and only… Continue reading Week of Hell
