Hi, I’m Beth.
I’m an artist, awkward overthinker, introvert, and maximalist-at-heart attempting simplicity. I have a passion for growing stuff, cooking stuff, and making stuff.
For a long, long time I lived in a tiny little charming old house in the city with my husband and our animals, managing my Art Licensing business. I liked my life. Stuff was always kind of complicated but I thought that’s how it was supposed to be. I dreamed of a slower more sustainable life but believed it was just out of my reach, so I kept on doing things the same way. Day after day, year after year, I avoided change at all costs.
Then one day it all came tumbling down. I was alone for the first time in nearly 3 decades: over 50, divorced, self-employed in a volatile industry, and terrified. Reinventing my life and spreading my wings was a clumsy, ugly struggle the first few years but eventually my only option became, in spite of myself, finding this life: the one I had wished for since I was a little girl.
These days I’m
juggling learning balance on my little homestead out in the country, sharing my life with a new cast of characters. Slowly and awkwardly learning how to live a more sustainable and simple life: getting rid of old habits, beliefs, and complications. I hope you will join me on this journey.
