About This Blog

My husband, Steven Foutch, is a Printmaker. I am a Jewelry Artist. And our five-month-old son, Henry, is as yet undecided. But together, we three are already heavily involved in collaboration.

So far Steven and I have braved two collaborative exhibitions and are now scheduled for a third in Spring 2018 at the Texas A&M University – Commerce, TX – University Gallery as part of their limited exhibition series, Artist Couples.

With a little over a year to develop this next collaborative effort, we are excited to see where so many changes will take us, together and apart, as a family and as artists. This blog is an attempt at staying connected to our process (and schedule!) while sharing tales of our successes and sidesteps with a greater community of sympathetic makers – all filtered through the necessary lenses of humor and sincerity.

Courage to Despair

Above : Pecan and Elm and Pine in SnowNote : This post was started in January and finished in February. The task of coming home after the holidays is always a strange one. And this year, after three plane rides pinned to my seat by the sleeping weight of a seven-month-old, the transition seems just a bit more jarring and welcome. As eager as I was to get out into the world after a season of working from home and learning how to mother, I am just as ready to return to our insulated life – to my studio (filled with plants hidden from the frost), to the carpeted floors of our living room (newly sprinkled with the small toys of small people), to the perspective-giving openness of our big-for-the-city backyard (temporarily barren and shifting in the ever-changing light of winter). Finally we return also to our routines. We…Continue

Reasons for Not Making

Started by Kathleen Janvier Dec 3, 2016. 0 Replies

Above : We Carry Volumes - All These Empty Pages . iv : Kathleen JanvierI suppose an appropriate follow-up to such an optimistic beginning is a more realistic look at our everyday. While artist couples certainly maintain the potential for daily encouragement in making, they also posses a sometimes enabling understanding of the ebb and flow of studio rhythms. The trap of sympathy snags us more than we would like, resulting in weeks of thin, frustrated excuses and neglected worktables. Of course we know better than to fully despair, as these pauses in the studio usually expose seasons of reading or exercising or a renewed interest in household chores – all of which manifest a rebalancing of the live/work ideal. …Continue

Independently Together

Started by Kathleen Janvier Nov 1, 2016. 0 Replies

Above : Collagraph Print and Objects from 'Fronts' at Brookhaven College - Farmers Branch, TexasToo many of us know that making art can sometimes be the first thing to fall under pressure of a busy schedule. In those moments, Steven and I are lucky for the accountability that comes with being married to an artist – someone to chase us back into the studio, to force collaboration when the circuitous nature of solitary making takes a downward spiral. Our previous artistic…Continue
