Mini artist documentary by Crews Creative. Music by Crystal Beth and her Boom Boom band

The merge between my art and my soul has always been a natural continuation for me and movement a necessary way for me to process life. The black line down my face simply represents the healing work that I am doing starting in my mind, then down my center to my lips, my mouth, my words and my VOICE. Continuing to my throat, as I learn to extend compassion towards my own heart. Thank you to the amazingly talented Crews Creative and Crystal Beth!

Old News

One year ago I hosted an art show for the lovers and the haters of Valentines Day.

One year later I discovered this article about the show. It was quite interesting for me to read and to hear this perspective, although I was hoping the theme of the deconstruction and examination of the term “romance” was more apparent.

I chose specific body parts to paint that represented communication and body language, how we experience other people in touch/nerve endings, Voice, Vision, the brain, the curve of the spine, the flow or cut of hair, our DNA and fingerprint.

Asking: What is physical attraction, chemistry?

Purposing to honor the artists from Gray’s Anatomy, while recreating and rein-visioning their original meticulously drawn images that brought insight and education to millions.

As I dove deeper with this project, looking back to the creation of my own cells, I began to discover on a deeper level the so called “Divine Romance”. In my own words a profound awe and wonder of the Bigger, the Artist, the Creator.
