I make Incredible Unique Art out of Vintage Copper and Aluminum Molds (remember Jello Salads?) These are really beautiful and unique, and amazingly, they sell! No, not like hotcakes, not yet at least… But steadily, like a slow drumbeat, hopefully gaining speed and moving towards a drumroll!

The one in the featured image is now in the permanent Collection of The Ryan Licht Sang Bipolar Foundation, and will be shown at the Zolla/Lieberman Art Gallery in Chicago, Illinois beginning October 25th, 2019. The show is entitled Insights III and showcases the amazing creative minds of artists (like me !) with Bipolar Disorder.

Ryan Licht Sang was an amazing young genius who lost his life to Bipolar Disorder, and His Foundation brings awareness to the plight of those with Bipolar Disorder, and helps teach about the illness so we can lessen the stigma for those of us who suffer. Also, The Ryan Licht Sang Bipolar Foundation pushes for a test to be created by Medical Science to locate a “biomarker” so people can be diagnosed early-as Kids, and hopefully have a chance at better treatment, even one day, perhaps, a cure….

I must remember to be kind to myself. To be proud of myself for how far I have come in this Crazy Life with this disabling illness. I really am something, aren’t I?

.  I was also honored to have one of my paintings chosen last year to be included in Insights II,  and shown at the Zolla/ Lieberman Gallery ! It was entitled, ” Crossing the Delaware, Well Aware”and I’m sure I bragged about it here on The Wind. It is one of the founding artworks establishing the Permanent  Collection of The Ryan Licht Sang Bipolar Foundation, and a source much joy to me. I treasure the honor, and especially the friendship of Dusty and Joyce Sang, Ryan’s dear parents. I hope so much to attend the show again this year!

Daydreaming as a profession

Daydreaming and then, maybe, writing a poem about it. And that's my life.
