This piece is titled “Period”. We traded a vegan cookie for the egg, which came from a duck who was rescued by Tiffany Young, a board member of Northwest Animal Rights Network. Even backyard eggs involve suffering and death but this beautiful creature is not kept for her egg production…in fact, her eggs are usually fed back to her! As they should be.
Q. If you were suddenly face to face with Salvador Dali, what would you say?
A. Saint Salvador! Speak to me about shadows, gravity, holy sacraments, the golden desert. What shape first appeared in your mind before painting “The Ascension of Christ”? Infinity can grow in both directions, can’t it? Or does it melt? Would you like to come over for tea and biscuits?
Q. Do your collages speak to you? What do they say?
A. The BEST things they speak of have to do with the hidden connections in all things. They teach me to communicate disturbing beauty and new ways to laugh. Letting me peek at deeper parts of my own brain (or perhaps the collective subconscious?). Sometimes they just say, “Why aren’t you in bed? It’s 2 a.m. We will be here in the morning for you to work on, we promise.”

In response to and in support of the Occupy protests throughout our country…
For the 99% of Americans who are not greedily hoarding away our nation’s dollars…
