This is evolving into greater complexity than I'm prepared to explore (like, what's she holding? and whose hand is that?), so I'll have to come back to it another time. It's midnight in my time zone and there are still things I need to do. ... ... ... #art #drawing #dessins #desnudos #croquis #charcoal #charcoaldrawing #figuredrawing #figurativedrawing #figurestudy #lifedrawing #nudedrawing #femalenude #femalebody #femaleform #figurativeart #drawingfromimagination #contemporarydrawing #colourfieldstudios #ashevilleartist #alexdrawslife #wip

Chairs with Rustic Style. These Burlap Dining Chairs have generous seats and extra padding on the back. The rustic nails heads are THE DETAILS that make the chairs, giving it that Farmhouse feel. Accompany with a rustic Farmhouse Table and you’ll feel like your coming home to the Farm! #burlap #farmhousestyle #rustic

My 2nd Time practicing for a live performance using #abl#ableton2. Berklee gave me this “downtempo” set to use. This was challenging at first because I have never used a controller for a downtempo genre before but had a lot of fun and I love challenges! #thelivingtrees #ableton #ashevilleartist #music #undergroundmusic #downtempo #downtempomusic

Today is our seven year wedding anniversary! So here is a Date Purse, a bag which I have been making in some iteration since before we were married (and a few months before we met, if we’re getting technical). Happy Monday, y’all! 🌙✨

I had this idea when I woke up, so as soon as I had a moment, I had to put it down. I don't know her name, but her best friend is a block of anthracite, and she only cuts her hair when someone says "the swallows are late to Capistrano" when ordering vegan pizza. 44x36, charcoal and pastel on paper. ... ... ... #art #drawing #dessins #desnudos #croquis #charcoal #charcoaldrawing #figuredrawing #figurativedrawing #figurestudy #lifedrawing #nudedrawing #femalenude #femalebody #femaleform #figurativeart #drawingfromlife #contemporarydrawing #colourfieldstudios #ashevilleartist #alexdrawslife #whatdoesthisbuttondo #doebedoobedoo

I am so thrilled that @mirandawildman and I have the honor of hosting @somosbycoconuco for a series of #fiberfebruary workshops at #studio141asheville !⠀ ⠀ Nature’s Notebook: A Workshop Exploring Local Botanical Color⠀ ⠀ Saturday & Sunday February 10 & 11, 2018⠀ 11:00-2:00pm each day⠀ ⠀ This workshop is a study of botanical color and shape, a more technical approach covering the basics. ⠀ ⠀ This book will document our two-day natural dyeing explorations as we break down recipes to make fibers colorfast, create our own color concoction, collect swatches for each dye, move through an observational drawing session, extract color from local plant matter, and cover each native dye’s medicinal uses. ⠀ ⠀ You will leave with a notebook full of nature’s colors, detailed recipes, and beautiful illustrations!⠀ ⠀ Colors will come from flowers, fungi, food waste, and other plant and earth based materials. We support thoughtful foraging and community supported gardens.⠀ ⠀ Register and join us for this one or more of the workshops and stay cozy in the studio this winter (head to the www.artnurture.com link in bio and click on 'Asheville Workshops"⠀ ⠀ #trusttheprocess #fiberart #natureart #makesweetart #artnurture #artnurturejourney #ashevilleartist #riverartsdistrictasheville #ashevilleworkshops

The Useless Tree .......... Sold in Cologne, Germany 🇩🇪 ....................... This one I did way back in October 2016 in a hostel cafe in Koln, Germany. A young man bought it for his girlfriend. This is one of my favorite parables from one of my favorite thinkers. I will never do something like this again. It took way too much of my time and paint for it to come out as simple and half-way decent as it is. ............................... #chuangtzu #taoist #treestagram #streetart #streetartists #gallerywall #artoftheday #artistsofig #pop#popart/a> #popart #upandcoming #newart #newartist #useless #cardboard #artfido #artsanity #nycart #nycartist #laart #laartist #ashevilleart #ashevilleartist #nolaart #nolaartist #parisart #inspirationcultmag #hifructose #juxtapoz #deviantart

Proud to announce my weavings have found another venue to be sold out of in addition to my personal website. Stop by @nestavl in Biltmore Village to shop a selection of my weavings in their store. It is so fun to have my work in physical places other than my tiny weaving space at home 😂

#5 Aquatic Study Series “Hirundinella ventricosa” Stomach parasite commonly found in Wahoos. 6” x 10” pen and ink on paper. This goob was first brought to my attention by my Environmental Studies professor back in the day. He did a lot of fishing in the gulf and frequently removed these thumb shaped suckers from the bellies of Wahoos. Oddly enough he started collecting them, drying them out, and decorating his kitchen walls with the petrified parasites, providing the perfect backdrop for afternoon tea and crumpets. #wahoo #parasite #trematode #vampire #scienceart #illustration #marinebiology #fishart #avlartist #ashevilleart #ashevilleartist #artistsoninstagram #bloodsucker #fluke #drawing #ink #teatime

This last week has been a whirlwind. Snow, no school, and a hubby with the flu have kept me busy. Fortunately, the kids and I have stayed well, and I spent some much needed quality time with my sweet boy. We went sledding, played Hogwarts Battle, and baked chocolate cupcakes. ❤️ . And so here I find myself, on a *normal* Monday, attempting to sit with my photos. Loving these last few I’m posting of @themountainmuse, and so excited about culling through shots of @peakmntfilms! . . . #alternativebride #mountainbride #styledshoot #styledshoots #fin#fineartphotography #lifestylephotography #fineart #nikon #badass #brideinblack #asheville #ashevillenc #ash#ashevilleart/a> #ashevillephotography #ashevillephotographer #ashevilleart #ashevillewedding #828isgreat #mountains

Controversial Opinion of the Day: I love Star Wars AND Star Trek. I knowwwww, crazy, right? But here's the thing, it's possible to enjoy a western Samurai romp in space while also being into more scientifically detailed and exploratory stories. 🌲 Just like it's possible to enjoy vidja games and reading comics while also getting out there and enjoying a nice hike or some rock climbing! 🌲 Tell me, does it have to be one or the other to be a true fan, or can we celebrate the awesome in both?! 🌲 This design will help support @conservingcarolina and will be available for pre-order in March, and fully released in the first week of April! It'll come in shirt, sticker, and patch flavors 😄 🌲 🌲 🌲 🌲 🌲 #wegiveafox #trekker #trekkie #vasquezrocks #nerdswag #appalachia #nerdgirlproblems #designforgood #explorewnc #thewandertrees #ash#ashevillefolk #828isgreat #appalachian #asheville #graphicart #avltoday #flatdesign #liveauthentically #visitasheville #ashevillenc #naturegram #trailblazers #exploreasheville #wncartist #adventureasheville #authenticasheville #ashevilleartist #ihopethismakesyousmile
