Nebraska Gallery, Portland, Solo Show August 27th

August 17th, 2014

My next solo show will be opening the night of August 27th here in Portland at Nebraska Gallery.

“my latest works deal with the idea of fragments and the connection. feeling rather than knowing. choosing instinct over logic to achieve desire rather than defined outcomes. the chaos of volcanos, the collapse of an avalanche, the weight of an anchor. the idea of boyancy over balance. some locks do not open with keys. this is a world where candy canes grow at the tops of mountains. freedom comes from belief and choice, and all things are connected”

Mexico Classes coming up soon!

July 20th, 2014

If you are looking to take a trip this winter and also want to take one of my workshops, you can do both at the same time :)

Sign ups are now open for my workshops at Hacienda Mosaico in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

This is one of my favorite workshops to teach because the location is amazing.

There are two options for classes….

5 half-day workshop Register here. Dec 28th – Jan 3rd

5 full-day workshop Register here. January 4-10th.

These classes will focus on larger scale pieces.

Things to think about and remember..
This entire process is based on working in reverse, and out of time with our thoughts. This method forces us to learn to see. Meaning we see what is, rather than the idea of it. It’s easy to get caught up with the ideas in ones head. We aim to learn that a plan is just a starting point at best, and it’s always ok to change our direction. A rigid plan can confuse us with let downs and expectations. Just because things aren’t going as planned doesn’t mean they are going poorly. I’ve found in my past that sometimes even when things are working out better, it’s easy to still be confused and frustrated based on the idea that things are not going as planned. Best to not look at the plan, but rather what’s happening so we don’t miss anything..


Find more info on the class in the links above. :)
