Intersection: Art and Life

My friend Kevin Wallace, art advocate, author, and director of the Beatrice Wood Center for the Arts, recently published, Intersection: Art and Life, an important and beautiful book that reminds us why we thrive when art is part of our life.

The book features over 280 images and insights from 150+ contemporary artists, including Beatrice Wood.

I am honored that he included my work!

From the inside cover:

“Throughout history, art was naturally intertwined with people’s daily lives: a vessel for water, a carving to record a war, objects to capture religion and identity.

But today art can seem very separate from our lives, and, as our society careens its way through change and conflict, it may seem increasingly irrelevant. This book is about what your daily life is missing if you’re disconnected from art and how you can fix it”.

Etsy Featured Shop

I am so grateful to have my work and story featured on the Etsy blog.

The article is part of an inspiring series called Featured Shops, and was beautifully written by Valerie Rains, Senior Editor at Etsy. We spoke on Skype a few weeks ago about the motifs and themes of my childhood, a quest for self-discovery that took me across the globe, and how I found my creative voice.

The Etsy blog has been a source of inspiration for me. I have learnt about business and creativity, and have vicariously traveled the world through the lens of each featured artist. Take a plunge, you will be enriched!
