I see this collection as a bit of a comic strip, each piece being like a page out of a comic book of sorts. With the 3-D stuff; it’s a pop up comic book.

 

I just want to encourage other people to express themselves through creativity.  I discovered that you do not need to be gifted artistically in order to  have something to say. It is the desire to create that matters. The first thing I ever made was "Be Kind." The blue bits that make a swirl are the ends of needles that were given to me by a girl on the streets named Bobbi. She was hooked on heroin. If anyone knows what happened to her I would like to know. I think about her still and wonder. Each one we stopped and chatted for a bit; it was a way to connect. Art can build a bridge... the rest of Be Kind was done out of things I mostly picked up off the ground, haha.  That was the beginning in 2004; I think the hardest part of anything is getting started.

 

Fun fact: the person who invented sticky notes was trying to make a super glue..!)  Art is kind of like that too, you have the idea in your mind, and what you end up with is often just a rendition. I find there is always a point when I want throw it all away. Just keep going. F-Perfection.

 

Dedicated to the Animal Kingdom (seriously); they need our stewardship more than ever.
