Welcome to Field Notes.

Field Notes is a monthly-ish illustrated newsletter (the -ish pulling a lot of weight) I’ve been writing in various iterations since 2016—I started the project over at TinyLetter while I was a graduate student in Boston researching my master’s thesis. Topics then included a lot of musings on certain unconventional though noteworthy women in desert places (as did my research). While the continuation of that work has changed in proportion to life’s demands and now remains largely under wraps (!), this space has evolved to embrace other forms of culture, nature, and identity in our strange world.

Honestly, it’s a lot of, like, rhapsodizing about plants and movies about space.

Also, hi, @missyjkennedy here—as you can probably tell, I’m a writer and illustrator as well as a marketer. You can find my professional work (and published writing) here.

And if you’re digging the Saturnine vibe, you can buy some of my earrings, too.
