I have wanted a tattoo for as long as I can remember. I'm just too indecisive and I'd probably give my very southern mother a heart attack. I wear temporary tattoos sometimes to try and work up my nerve. In the last image, I'm walking in San Francisco with Julian wearing my favorite floral tattoo from Tattly by artist Fiona Richards. My go to shops to buy them are Brooklyn based Tattly and Brisbane based Pepper Ink.
I went to Lincoln Center to see Paul Taylor's American Modern Dance. I loved it. The performance was so inspiring and accompanied by a full orchestra. I wish I could dance like that! While leaving, I noticed an art installation by Brooklyn-based artist Dustin Yellin. It blew me away - this tall glass structure forming a body out of tiny clippings of collage and when you moved to the side of the glass structure the image would completely disappear. I researched and found that Dustin Yellin is responsible for the nonprofit Pioneer Works in Red Hook that is both a residency for working artists and a public art space. I can't wait to go. This is what I love about living in New York City. You can be walking down the street and happen upon something amazing that excites and inspires you. Check out Artsy's Dustin Yellin page for up-to-date Yellin exhibition listings.
