Hello friends (and followers who care!) I avoid other social media sites to a slightly suspicious degree so here I am with news from my life.
It’s enthusiastically Spring here on the coast which means I’m starting to feel a bit more energetic and make plans for the summer. I’ll be vending food (long story) at Luminosity Festival on Vancouver Island in July and looking into potentially creating an art installation/intentional space either there or at another festival. I’ll keep you posted.
I’m also moving at the end of June, it’ll be sad to leave the Unicorn Palace but I’ll be taking two of my lovely roomies with me down the highway to the Casa, another beautiful and slightly more isolated shared art house. It’s got a long and storied history of sheltering many of the visual and audio artists in the west-coastal creative community (for example, Bassnectar played some of his first shows in the living room). I’m at once daunted by the prospect of dismantling my studio/bedroom and excited to build a fresh one in my new space.
I recently acquired a new DSLR which is why my recent photos have been of a better quality, but I’m still learning how to use it which is why they’re still kind of shitty. Bear with me.
I’ve experienced a lot of personal(ity) changes in the past year or so, some intentionally through lots of hard work and some more unexpectedly. I’ve discovered that I love to sculpt and while it’s been my preferred medium lately I have been working on my drawing and painting skills as well. I like to think I’ve made some progress in creating myself as a person as well as art. The latter has been an integral part of the former, I think, and I’ve never been more grateful to be exactly who I am. Maybe that sounds a bit weird but those who know me and my situation well might understand what I mean. Progress, like I said.
Thanks for listening, I’m off to make more neat tings for you to look at. I hope you’re well.
