So this happened a few weeks ago at Oregon State University’s event for Indigenous People’s Day. Beautiful ceremony and prayers… I got to meet my an artist I truly admire, Rick Bartow… What an amazing artist and powerful collection of art.

The show is up at Kidder Hall until Dec 18th. If you’ve not seen his work before, I highly recommend you drop in. The work is raw, moving and sometimes layered. I always learn so much when viewing Bartows pieces. Check out Froelick Gallerys Page to see more of this artists work. I am looking forward to visiting again to soak in the work at a slower pace.

Feeling so fortunate for everyone’s presence that day.

..And, I’ll leave you with a few goofy pics to prove I was really there! I’m usually the one with the camera, as a result, I’m not in many pictures at events. 🙂

I am incredibly excited to present to you videos with instruction of the following workshop.

••• Dream Voyages •••

Come with me as we journey into our dreamscapes. Recreate dream like worlds, those mythical, magical, spiritual places we visit in daydreams and journeys; both waking and sleeping. We’ll use antiquing methods to create a vintage and celestial setting for your dreams to be expressed in this realm!In this workshop, we will discuss image selection and how we can capture synchronicities and symbols in our lives and how to be open to their messages. I will guide you through my method of symbolic writing and prompt you to do stream of consciousness writing based off your image selection.Using tea staining techniques, we’ll create a personal scroll for you to attach to your pages where they create a unique space for storing and exploring messages.Rich with symbolism, color and texture, I will guide you through a playful dance and voyage through our dream worlds.
