I am an art historian/writer/editor/mother/hopeless dreamer living in Seattle with my husband, young son, and our two cats. I have a PhD in art history and created this blog to share my ideas about art and art history. To be sure, I have a love of arcane topics like fifteenth-century Muscovite architecture, but I also have been known to opine about more mundane things like memorable rides on Amtrak.
I love art because it gets at the ordinariness—and extraordinariness—of being human. And it is our ordinary experiences of the everyday that make life so interesting. There is history and love and anger and artifice and sincerity and beauty everywhere we look. I like to find those stories and talk about them. Thanks for stopping by.
