I am UmberDove.

And by that, I mean an artist.  One who hears stories in the wind, who paints because it is what her soul tells her to do, who smiths because the muse moves through her fingertips, who loves nothing more than the promise of an unexplored trail, the sound of the ocean in her ears, and scent of a serious cup of coffee.


My City: A toast to the past three years


After a long weekend down in California prepping, painting, and scrubbing our new place (imagine the kitchen of a single bachelor who cooked only using a fry-daddy - that's the grease level I spend hours removing) we're back for the last couple days of life in Washington.

It's bittersweet leaving this land that I've loved so fiercely, that I've learned so much from, that has washed my wounds and planted hope in my soul. Seattle, you've been gentle and kind. You've been the life of the party and my melancholy companion. I leave a piece of me here with you, forever, and take a part of you with my, tattooed across my heart. I promise to remember the lessons you've taught me, to keep that faith, to uphold who I've become.

And lastly I promise to visit, and often.
