Wow, every week is such a journey these days...hope all of you are hanging in there!
Continuing to make music and theater during all of this is definitely keeping me sane, and I am so grateful to the other artists I collaborate with for being resilient and creative and INSPIRING ME.
Here are some things I've made (in collaboration with amazing people!) that I want to share...
CREEK AND KILLS has released a new single, "September 15," and all of our music/merch sales on Bandcamp (until we say otherwise) will go to the Center for Reproductive Rights and the National Network of Abortion Funds.

In the Christian Patriarchy Movement, it is wholly appropriate for girls to be seen and not heard as they fulfill their life's mission of submission. But what happens when these docile disciples come to the revolutionary realization that using their voices and making their own choices is not akin to the sin of vanity – or insanity?

Have you thanked your mother today? No One does the dishes forever in this comic look at the never-ending cycle of the domestic labors of love.

Marianne has never been more proud of her daughter, Anne, a recently published academic at the beginning of what will certainly be a highly successful career. She has given her child everything, living vicariously through her achievements. When an unexpected guest arrives at the party, old wounds open and fears of being overshadowed yet again leave Marianne no choice but to speak her truth.

Washington is at a boiling point. Protesters have been labeled traitors by the President, and their lives are in danger. White and Black women struggle to navigate the deeply embedded racism that divides them from unity. Welcome to 1917 and the Suffragists’ fight for the Vote!
