While I have been busy getting up to speed at the college after a 9-month sabbatical, my alter ego Puer has been busy. Havik Anthology, an arts and literature publication is featuring four pieces from the Puer series in their next volume. I am so excited and grateful to be included by this prestigious anthology published by Las Positas College from California!
Alchemical Bride at Cornish Playhouse
Alchemists of old called the furnaces where base matter was transmuted into gold the House of Chick, because symbolically, this incubator is a metaphor for the human body, and our physical metabolism is the fuel that transforms matter into the sought after body of light.
Five paintings from my new series, Alchemical Bride, are on display at the Cornish Playhouse in an Artists Up group show.
The show is up through May 15th, 2019 at the Cornish Playhouse, 201 Mercer, on the grounds of the Seattle Center.
Up The Stairs Quarterly to feature Through The Aleph from the Puer series
Seven pieces from the Puer series will appear in Up The Staircase Quarterly. The pieces as a group are titled Through The Aleph, because my alter-ego, Puer, that eternal Man-child, travels through one to experience different landscapes. He’s my very own transcendentalist, with an exuberant point of view!
Spring and Jump Into Green
This piece is my contribution to this year’s EGGS-plore Lynwood Egg Hunt. The EGG hunt city wide is on!! After the egg hunt, the eggs will be on display at Lynwood City Hall and auctioned off to support local nonprofits. The auction is on June 14th. I Love nothing more than to be able to give back to my community!
One of the most awesome memories from a youth spent in the tropics is the sight of bright tree frogs latched onto a window. I could inspect them up close and they wouldn’t try to flee. They knew there was glass between us. Maybe the frogs wanted to get a closer look at the humans too! Frogs usually herald springtime with their croaking and chirping choruses, but sadly populations in the US and abroad are declining. Amphibians are the first to suffer when contaminants enter the environment and so I am hoping these colorful frogs will help bring awareness to how we all can spring a little more into green. Every little action by every single one of us adds up to one big greening effort!

I am so honored to have my multi-media installation, No Hiding Place Down Here, included in this critical exhibition.

On view in conjunction with Sordid and Sacred: The Beggars in Rembrandt’s Etchings, Concrete & Adrift features work by regional and national contemporary artists working in a variety of media. The Alexandria Museum of Art is committed to fostering a culturally rich community through innovative art experiences.

Wake Up Screaming online journal, Issue #16, Numbers
They published a selection of my Books Of Hours Series! This was such a thrill…you can’t imagine. As some of you know, my mission is to change hearts and minds through art, and this unique journal intersects so beautifully with my own vision. Wake up Screaming is an online arts magazine, a window to the soul based in Glastonbury U.K. The first article is by Tom Bree, who is currently writing a book about sacred geometry in the Well’s Cathedral. Visit the journal and see my work here: Book of Hours at Vol #16, NUMBERS
New Video Shorts For My Documentary, A Life In Art
So if you’ve been wondering why you haven’t been seeing new artwork on the Puer or Migrations series, it is because I have been neck deep in writing, directing, editing, and producing a documentary…um, with only my husband to help me! I’ve got five more shorts in the pipeline before I embark on the long documentary piece. So yup, this is a no-budget, bring your heart and soul to the community kind of film-making project. oxox
February 14 – April 13, 2018
