Many thanks to Shout Out LA for their article on me, my art and teaching, and Opulent Mobility! It was such a delightful surprise to have it come up during a week while nearly everything has been on fire. Right now our evacuation order was lifted, but it's been close and so many are still endangered.
Good wishes and good fortune to the many folks being affected by the fires and all the extreme weather of late. My friend Farrah (AKA Mz. Creation) is offering a sale of her fun, fuzzy scoodies and mitts with 75% of all proceeds going to the Phoenix Talent Fire Relief Fund through October 15th. You can also go direct to the fund here. If you have other good links for relief funds, please share them.
On an up note, congratulations to all the artists who shared their work for Opulent Mobility 2020! As usual, it was a delight choosing the works with Anthony Tusler. Once I hear back from all the artists to verify their involvement I will share the list with you all.
Here's hoping you're keeping safe and healthy in these very weird times. Let's get out the vote.

I re*make mobility devices and materials and give them new lives. Sometimes I staple drape.
