Static video from my most recent show at Chinatown Soup on Lower Eastside Manhattan. I ❤️ LES (during the day & early evening). The 4-day pop-up boutique and gallery was a success; met a lot of creative and heart filled people and happily showcased my fine wearable art.
Wow! As anyone who has been following realizes, I am not very good at being consistent with my posts. For those who know me personally, this consistency is similar to my habit of journal writing. I intend to start being more present on here; starting NOW!
To back up a moment in time to um Late February 2016, this static video was shot at a large group show featuring a pair of my lovely heels. BRIC is an incredible community-focused arts organization in Brooklyn, NY and a temporary home to many visual, performance, art, music, spoken word, and dance creative projects; bringing together Art and Activism at both the local level and global sphere. I am honored to have been in this election year's OPEN (C)ALL: Up For Debate. Thanks!!
Life does tend to come full circle (repetition and integration that works to create wholeness and wellbeing); sometimes in more subtle and others in more obvious ways. This film is a concrete example of how my desires and life experiences converge in ways that offer a wholeness that allows adventure and joy to prevail no matter where the landscape. Here I am taking advantage of the 2016 two foot + snowstorm in NYC to cross country ski on the beach at Coney Island. The snow was buttery and allowed the skis to glide with ease. It had been over 3 years since I had XC skied ~ what a magical day indeed! All smiles all day.
Oh and I made the local news to boot: in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle
Taken during the winter of 2010, this picture of "The Cirque" came across my desktop screen saver just the other day. It reminds me of the beautiful and challenging places that I have been in my life. This section of Kirkwood Mountain Resort is closed during the ski season, open only for big mountain competitors once a year. Oh my ~ Fun!
Euphoria that follows a Polar Bear Plunge on January 1, 2016. I was channeling the historic energy of Coney Island while utilizing the contours of the humanmade landscape.
