Kindness Jetpacks come with 10 notes of appreciation for you to leave around to brighten someone’s day!Read More
Lately I have felt like I’ve been writing a lot more emails than I have been making art. Despite my craving for paint stained fingers and a messy studio, I think it’s okay to let the ideation process take the lead on occasion. For me, the creative process originates in storytelling and collaboration, new ideas and a deep desire to do something about my own impassioned callings. There are so many causes I care about, and statements I want to make, but I think it’s vital to distill down our own ideas and take action on one thing at a time. I keep being called towards the importance of INTENTION and how powerful a concept it is when you apply it to your life. I have always believed in the process of manifestation, but more and more I have been uncovering the science that supports the idea of a more conscious and connected mental landscape. Here are some of my latest favorite podcast episodes:
On Being: James Doty- the Magic Shop of the Brain
The Model Health Show: The Science Of Gratitude & How The World’s Top Achievers Utilize It
I look forward to distilling my ideas further and moving forward with the making of art that carries the power of action. My hope is to make things with the reciprocal power to evolve well beyond the tiny part I play in putting it into the world. Stay tuned!
I had the unique opportunity to spend time with local middle school students. The ArtBase in Basalt, Colorado asked me to come into the classroom with an engaging art activity so I decided to bring the PASS IT ON postcards. I collected pledges from kids and guided them into making their own Postcards with their own ideas. I couldn’t be more psyched about the postcard to the Governor!
I created a set of 12 “TAKE ACTION” postcards to inspire people to set and share their intentions for a happier and healthier planet Earth. The postcards are an experiment in how powerful the ripple effect can be- and how important it is to share our stories and inspire others through our own ACTION! The postcards feature my original artwork on the front and a “mad-lib” on the back with space for you to insert your own ideas. I choose 12 action verbs for the front that could help inspire the pledge you choose to take, or the person you choose to send the postcard to. I screen printed a limited edition set of the postcards, available in my shop, to capture the unique nature of our intentions. No two postcards came out the same. I’ll be featuring the pledges I collect on the PASS IT ON blog and look forward to the grand experiment of social change!
