So, I thought it might be time to finally introduce myself… sort of! I’ve been The Jealous Curator for two years, and I’ve always tried to stay fairly anonymous. Why you ask? Well, I’m an artist too {quite a shy artist!}, and I’ve never wanted my work to be part of this blog – and it’s going to stay that way. But, after speaking at Alt Summit ten days ago it’s been pretty hard to keep all of my secrets secret… especially when the very persuasive Erin Loechner, of Design for Mankind, was one of my roommates! Erin has officially outed me on her blog today, so if you’re interested in seeing my work, you can pop over there for a peek. Ok, that’s all… back to being jealous of other people! ; )

    Hi Danielle,
    I’ve been a big fan of yours since you started guest posting at sfgirlbybay. Thank you so much for sharing your jealousy with us, it’s been a real eye feast.

    I’m glad your own work has been outed!

  12. Jessica /// 02.01.2011 /// 8:56am

    Yes! Getting “outed” never looked so good 🙂 And if you don’t mind me asking – do you ever sell any of your work? Because I have the perfect spot for that “mountain boy”…

    You’re awesome!

  13. the jealous curator /// 02.01.2011 /// 9:43am

    ha! well, no… they’re not for sale anywhere at the moment, but i’m thinking of changing that. and secondly, that’s not a mountain boy… that’s me at age 7!?! don’t worry though – i got that A LOT! {that’s why i have really long hair now!) ; )

  14. Jessica /// 02.01.2011 /// 12:14pm

    Oops~ does it help that I had the same haircut as a kid? Let me know when you change things : )

  15. the jealous curator /// 02.01.2011 /// 2:27pm

    : ) i think we all had that haircut at some point! yep, i’ll let you know when i have a store set up. thanks jessica!

    Congratulations to your artistic outing…:-)
    Your are a great artist as well as great curator!
    Love your collage! your work helped me understand better your blog (which became one of my daily reading)
    waiting to see more of both…

  17. Kelly Lynn Jones /// 02.02.2011 /// 12:51pm

    congrats on your outing! 😉

  18. the jealous curator /// 02.02.2011 /// 1:21pm

    thanks kelly ; )

  19. shisir /// 02.02.2011 /// 7:37pm

    Thumbs up!

  20. Bobbie /// 02.07.2011 /// 10:41am

    I knew you were a good artist from your curating. You curate like an artist rather than a critic. I would really like to see more of your art! I understand you wanting to keep it separate. Maybe another blog with just your work.. Your blog is amazing by the way!

  21. the jealous curator /// 02.07.2011 /// 2:03pm

    bobbie – i sent you an email with a link to my personal art blog. thanks so much for your sweet words : )

  22. Bobbie /// 02.07.2011 /// 10:58am

    I have to add, your “not mountain boy” looks like me at age 7 too! I was a tomboy..(do people still use that word?

  23. kate /// 02.07.2011 /// 11:32am

    congrats, danielle! super exciting! it will only make you more loved by all. ; ) as i wrote on dfm, i LOVE seeing parallels in your work and some of the artists you feature. i really like your series that you say is inspired by martha rich. go get ’em, girl! : )

  24. the jealous curator /// 02.07.2011 /// 12:51pm

    thanks kate xo
