My brain is full lately – bombarded with stories of how humans have lost consideration for other humans and animals and our shared Earth. We are being divided to see ourselves as THE OTHER. But I believe – as I have for a long while now – that there IS NO OTHER.
My heart is full too. I feel like we are truly being called to accept and love each other more ferociously in this climate of inequality and anger. So I decided to make beautiful stuff. I am designing for VIDA & Co. Please see their story and global impact for good here:
Every person involved in the creation of an item gets a fair share. It benefits everyone involved. It even allows me as an artist to choose what cause a portion of the proceeds benefits.
All of my products with a Passion Rose design benefit Animal Rights.
All of my products with a Daffodil design benefit Women’s Rights.
More product and designs will be added daily. Because I am inspired to do this.
Because I can put something out there that has a positive effect globally. Am I the greatest designer in the world??? No and Yes.
No? Well, Cher is designing for them too. And George Clinton. And others who get the concept that even putting a tiny bit of your creativity out there can help the wheels move forward. That beauty and tiny steps toward equality can be enough to push back the darkness.
Yes? I can see and capture beauty in the world – with my eye, with my heart, with my words, and with my iPhone. The idea is not to capture it and let it sit somewhere unshared, hanging out only as a beautiful moment once upon a time. The impetus is to bring it out into the light – make it joyful and accessible to everyone who needs a little lift.
