About the Event

I’m thrilled to announce my latest creative project that has kept me obsessed for the past many months: The 50/50 Show where over 50 artists create 50 artworks in 50 days!  All artists create an installment using 50 6-inch square panels.  I’m really happy to have been selected for this show and it has been a real challenge to keep up the pace to make so many little pieces of art

My 50/50 theme is Prayer Boxes for the Earth. This idea was sparked by the Tibetan Gau, a portable shrine used as an amulet to protect against danger and evil. At a time when our collective consciousness has grown to understand human caused climate change, my hope is that my Prayer Boxes will draw attention to healing our damaged planet and help us to think deeper about how to counteract the problems happening to Mother Earth.

Each of my plaques is a mandala composed of brass motifs along with rich gemstones, uniquely arranged in symmetrical geometric patterns expressing qualities of harmony, renewal and compassion. At the center of each piece is a riveted embellished brass box, which contains a written meditation or poem!  I hand painted each plaque giving it the final magic touch! These prayer boxes are about hope and if we use the guiding principle of mandalas to focus our energy - A brighter future is possible.  Let’s work together to restore balance back to Mother Earth.

The 50/50 Show will kick-off with a fundraising event on Sept. 10 and 11 at the Sanchez Art Center. For those two days, you’ll be able to view all of the artists’ 50 squares as a complete group. This is a great opportunity to experience the full impact and intent of each installation. You can purchase a piece of art at the fundraiser or after. From Sept. 12 and onwards, entry to the 50/50 Show is free.
