Surly Amy Has a #SciArt Patreon Project. Please support!

I was so inspired by all of the art and science panels at ChiFi this weekend that I decided to finally try to reach for one of my big dreams. And that big dream is to start painting again and making ceramic fine art pieces that are heavily linked to science. You only live once, folks and life is short. I know that this project may fail, but I’d hate myself if I didn’t try. Here is a li... »

#EveryDaySexism and Frida Kahlo

I am on air for about 12 minutes mid episode and am flanked by some really fascinating talk. Right after me is a group of women who talk about the issues facing women in the black feminist community.

Make Crap Art

Make Crap Art

I had the pleasure of being invited to speak at a local Ignite event a couple of months ago. In our long tradition in advokating for showing off your ugly things, I spoke on one of my favourite subjects: the value of terrible art. The video is below. Enjoy.
