Thank you for your email. Please understand if it takes a few to get back to you. 



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.


Checking In


Hello Lovlies and Lovers and Lovettes!
This is me.
I am a woman obsessed right now.

I'm in love with my studio.  I'm in love with art.  I'm in love with my work.  I keep telling myself I need to get out and stretch my legs in the glory of Spring's sun but I honestly can not tear myself away from this room.  The funny thing is, I've absolutely nothing to show you; this last week has been all about experimentation, trial and error, learning by the seat of my pants and listening to the same five albums on repeat turned all the way up.  I've got wet paint on three canvases, an unholy mess of leather dyes (I've discovered a technique that yields the most incredible dusky turquoise and I want to make approximately ten thousand pieces ALL colored the same), the pickle pot turned on and a new lens for Pierre.  I'm rather horrifically behind on emails and I've promised BC that I would eat lunch before 4:00 pm today.

So I'm checking in to say Happy Friday and ask if this week has been full of cabana boys and mimosas or nubby toques and afternoon whiskey.  Well?

OH MY GOSH!  P.S.  Are these not the most fantabulous earrings ever?  The amount of talent and inspiration this lady glows with does me in every time.
