I am so excited to head out tomorrow night to the Pioneer Square Art Walk to see Chris Berens work at my most favorite gallery in Seattle, Roq La Rue.

I first saw Chris’s work at said gallery over 3 years ago now. Mind was blown. Dreamy, mystical, and just a little off in subject to make your mind have to move and focus.

If you have the opportunity, go see this show. He’s one of the most talented artists out there, from the Netherlands, and shown here, in our town. Thank you Kirsten Anderson!

South Seattle Emerald

Early this month I got an email from a reporter asking to do a story on me. What?! Okay! Marcus was given my name from Joya over at the Tin Umbrella where I was getting ready to take down a very successful art show held there over the holidays. Marcus Green writes for the South Seattle Emerald, an online publication that features people, events, and stories from one of the most eclectic zip codes in Seattle (or in the nation for that matter). We met in the coffee shop as I was just finished taking down the art for delivery. I had an hour, and wished I had more. Marcus was the easiest reporter I’d ever chatted with. Open, warm, friendly, I basically felt like I was having coffee with an old friend. And two weeks later, here’s the story.

Artisan Matchmaker Seeks to Spark South End Inspired Resurgence in Handcrafted Goods

I believe in art. I believe in artists. I believe there is enough for all to go around. Theatre, music, craft, art, etc. Go out into this world and make something with it.

Art Walks

Let begin the year with some art walks. Tonight I will be headed down to Pioneer Square’s First Thursday Art Walk. Yes,  it’s technically the second Thursday, but it’s January people, and no one wants to head out to do anything on New Years Day! So this month is the exception, deal with it. Then tomorrow, I’m staying local in my own neighborhood for the resurgence of the DTR (Downtown Renton) Art Walk, now Art Eruption!!! Which will be happening throughout DTR the first Friday of every month. Again, I realize this is the second Friday, January, get it, okay. I haven’t seen any of the art that will be here, but I do know that Liberty Cafe is involved, has an amazing artists, and has been one of downtown’s anchors who’s been doing art since the olden days with me over at happy delusions. Go support your neighborhood art scene. And if you are an artists of any kind, remember to support other artists as well. It’s important people.

I am Groot

Went and saw Guardians of the Galaxy last night at the cheap theater. Excellent film and Groot was hands down the best character for me, so to show some love, here’s my latest Etsy Treasury titles, I am Groot.
