The Art Show

 

I’m super lucky that both of my parents are artists. They sorta have always just understood the challenges and drive of a creative life. They have always been supportive of my work and my decision to life an unconventional life. For that I am forever grateful.

Recently, my Mom went above and beyond and emailed a local PBS station to suggest they feature me on their amazing program “The Art Show”. I found out when the producer of the show emailed me asking if I was interested. OF COURSE! 100%! YES!

The entire experience was fantastic. The producer and crew made be so comfortable. I hope you enjoy a behind the scenes look at my studio. It was a complete class act. Be sure to check out all the fantastic work they do to showcase local artists!

That time I did a TEDx Talk

Last October I had the crazy amazing honor of speaking about the impact of intention in my life and art to a sold out theater at TEDxDayton. Check it.

Mac’s Backs

I was waiting for my laundry to finish drying and my veggie burger to finish cooking at Tommy’s that night when I wandered into Mac’s Backs Books. Mac’s Backs is one of those well traveled book stores, it’s a dimly lit lean space that’s been carefully curated and almost breathes. It’s got the wisdom of a professor who you don’t want to disappoint, that in one lecture unobtrusively subverts everything you previously believed. I was never able to figure out if the people behind the counter at Mac’s even considered money in exchange for such an honor. During my college years it was a magical place that seemed to put the exact books in my hands that I needed to read in moments that I didn’t even know I needed to read them.

That night I wandered in and I opened an Adbusters for the first time. My reaction to the way they dismantled and remixed mainstream media was to immediately put it back on the shelf. I remember looking around to see if anyone saw me and then I picked it up again. It was edgy and opening my eyes from a 19 year small town slumber.

I bought it.

So my love of remix began.
