Welcome to Love, Rose 2.0

Love, Rose 1.0

In 2004, I opened up shop and blog to explore my journey from the Midwest to Turkey. I had an MFA in Painting, a Turkish fiance, and a new life ahead of me. Now six years later, my husband and I are raising two bilingual and cultural kids, my freelance illustration habit is going strong, and I’ve got a young adult novel in progress. Along the way, I’ve designed handbags, spoken about  The Art of Cultivating a Creative Life, and exhibited my paintings and works on paper. It’s been a great journey.

Blogger, you were a good friend to me for six years! Love, Rose 2.0 feels so grown up, now, with a Thesis website designed by yours truly. Made by hand. That’s what this is all about – a life of creativity and making by hand with techie tools in a techie world.

If you came here from Blogger, thanks so much for continuing our friendship! If you’re new, so excited to meet you. Be sure to say hello. Because I know how easy it is to get distracted, to find yourself in a place somewhere on the internet very different from where you started out, the fact that you came here means so much to me.

Thank you.
