I am delighted and honored to have been selected as Spotlight Artist of the month for the Thalo artist community! I hope you will visit Thalo and read the written interview they had me answer. It was an awesome exercise for me to contemplate their questions and craft the answers to some things about my art I hadn’t thought about in the same way before 😊
“Never believe, that a few people can’t change the world.” – Margaret Mead.
With the introduction of ‘Flow Acrylics’ this year at various ZanArt classroom locations, I discovered there typically was a lot of snippets of leftover paint going to waste. As those that paint with me know, I do not like to throw good paint away. The search was on to do something positive with that leftover paint!
It was during my search, that my journey led me to the ‘Kindness Rocks Project’. Like my intention, this project was started to spread positivity and to make an act of kindness a connecting force between two strangers. So it was a perfect solution to encourage my students to use their left-over paints to pour beautiful stone canvases and add an inspirational quote if they chose. This was something that could bring a smile to someone’s face when they came across it. Something that would remind them that they are not alone. Now, pouring rocks is one of our favorite things to do even if we don’t have excess paint!
