The Basket

Monday through Friday I pack up perfume and art orders, or if things are really busy,  I make perfume and have an assistant pack up the orders. All the packages, unless they are larger boxes, get put into one of several woven baskets that get carried into the post office. If I am the one… Continue reading The Basket

Hello?

I saw this via a tweet by Grist and feel impelled to share with everyone I know. Intending others will share and we can finally have a massive wake up on the planet. I’m visualizing wild fires of the mind.

Bee Inspired

Yesterday I was reading about propolis, spurred on by a conversation with my neighbor regarding honey bees. I learned that the bee gathers propolis from tree resin and that all propolis is unique depending on where it is gathered, the time of year, etc. Some propolis will be high in one chemical component while the… Continue reading Bee Inspired

Planet Green

Almost one year ago a dialogue between Blythe of Planet Green and I began about the natural perfume. The yield of this synergy produced a slide show with some notations of what goes into an illuminated perfume.

So then, let’s take a new perspective on our current environmental challenges as a dance. For example, this morning I received an e-mail from one of the… Continue reading A dance

Blessed Unrest

Blessed Unrest tells the story of a worldwide movement that is largely unseen by politicians or the media. Hawken, an environmentalist and author, has spent more than a decade researching organizations dedicated to restoring the environment and fostering social justice. From billion-dollar nonprofit organizations to single-person causes, these organizations collectively comprise the largest movement on… Continue reading Blessed Unrest

Naked Evidence

In August 2007 artist Spencer Tunick created an installation with Greenpeace to bring attention to the vanishing Aletsch glaciers in Switzerland. As a fellow artist, I have tremendous respect for the beauty of natural forms, both in nature and the human body. The pairing of both is exquisite in Tunicks work.
