We are just a day away from my Goddess in All of Us body art photography gallery opening and I am pleased to say everything is falling nicely into place.
I had a true blast yesterday morning... Danny, Tiffany Ruth and I were interviewed live on Kboo Oregon Community Radio "Art Focus" hosted by Eva Lake all about the up coming Goddess exhibit and more!
You can take a listen to the recording of our live radio interview here.
It was a thrilling to speak live on the radio. It featured me, Danny and Tiffany talking about the art opening coming this Thursday. We also got into some interesting discussions about "what is the goddess", "what is outsider art", talked about the collective conscience, talked about breakin down the negative stigmas associated to body/spirit connection that have been created in this modern world to keep us caged... lots more and all in 30 mins! haha
I am excited to see if doing this radio interview helped generate interest, i guess we will find out tomorrow!
I am also happy to announce I have released my Goddess In All Of Us art book on sale via our etsy shop:

Last nugget of news, I ran into a lovely woman who is a supporter and collector of my artwork. We got to talking and planned that I will paint her from head to hips for my art opening and she will cruise around the event and serve wine to the guests. So there will be a live, living example of my body art walking around during the show! I think this will add an interesting preformance art element to the opening while giving people a better idea of what went on behind the making of my body art photographs.
So have I enticed you yet? Are you coming to the art opening?
I do so hope to see you there. I will also be selling and signing my art books.
I look forward to meeting and sharing my art series with you!
Best wishes and much love,
