Living the dream

Real life “stuff” in 2023 has forced me to take an honest look at the amount of time I have available to run Alcove. It breaks my heart, but I can only dedicate a small portion of my time going forward. However, Alcove is an important part of my life and the realization of a lifelong dream, so I will not be shutting down. 

We have our artist table for Lilac City ComiCon and will be attending this year. The remainder of the year, as far as Alcove is concerned, will be an opportunity for catching up and preparing for 2025. Once we’ve worked out a manageable schedule that incorporates Alcove, work, health, etc, our intention is to attend Lilac City ComiCon ( and Halloween X-SPO ( every year. They’re fun and have been good to us. We look forward to them every year (Thank you Nathan).

While this is all a bit painful for me, that’s life sometimes. Anxiety and depression make change very difficult, but change is necessary at different points in this existence. As long as there are positives to be gained and improved quality of life for my loved ones, and myself, that’s all that matters. And is reason enough to keep moving forward.

I will always innovate and push myself in an attempt to gain experience and knowledge. I’m constantly making sketches and notes on different ideas for Alcove. This will never stop. I intend to pursue work on larger one of a kind pieces. I have lots of ideas, thoughts, and plans for the future. We’ll see how it all unfolds.

Terrain 13!

Terrain is a Spokane based organization that supports local artists. They are always working to host shows, markets, and numerous events through out the year. Terrain got it’s start with it’s annual juried gallery show, Terrain. Due to Covid, the Terrain Gallery show was put on hold, but starting this year the show is back!

I applied and had a piece (NosPURRatu) accepted into Terrain 13! This will be the first Alcove related event I’ve done in years. I’m very excited and look forward to getting this ball rolling again 😁
