The Getty

GettyInspiredIt has been such an honor to be featured on The Getty museum's site that shine's light on people's thoughts about inspiration.

From that feature, a new project has developed where They Getty will be using my art and words about inspiration for a campaign that will be placed on a metro bus in the Los Angeles area. This photo (above) is what it will look like.

I am so honored and excited. Inspiration IS all around me and I am so grateful that I get to use my time and energy to focus on making art every single day.

Quilts for Uganda :: A Call for Donations

This is my amazing friend Tracy Schultz who recently visited Studio Crescendoh to share with me the news about her upcoming trip to an orphanage in Uganda.

Tracy is an ambassador of sunshine. Salt of the earth.

Photo-16Where is Uganda, might you ask?
Here's a little map that shows this small country in East Africa. It is bordered by Kenya, South Sudan, and the republic of the Congo.

Untitled-1In late November, Tracy will be traveling to an orphanage in Uganda with a group called Hopeline Africa Mission. When asked what they could bring to bring to the 50 children in the orphanage, they requested quilts.

Tracy would like to try and bring 50 handmade quilts, one for each child.

If you want to, I hope you will join me in making one to give to Tracy that she can take to a child at the the orphanage. Tracy will take pictures of each child and the quilt he or she receives and bring them back to share. I join Tracy in believing in the power of handmade and how the children will feel the extra love knowing that someone made them a quilt of their own. Here are some answers to questions you may have:

Q: Is there a size requirement?
A: No. You can make it any size.

Q: Is there a design or materials requirement?
A: No. You can make it as plain or fancy as you like, using traditional motifs or made up ones. You can keep it very very simple like this one. You can make it out of fabric or you can knit/crochet one with yarn!

Q: What's the deadline?
A: November 5th (If you live near Orange County, California, Tracy will make arrangements to go and pick up the quilt from you. If you live far too far for Tracy to pick up the quilt, you can make arrangements to have it shipped to her by contacting her via email at tracyschultz@socal.rr.com

I'm excited to be able to donate to this meaningful project, which I know will be executed beautifully.

My NEW Book! — Art Saves

I am thrilled to announce the arrival of my newest book titled Art Saves. It contains incredible stories from 20 multi-media artists, along with some amazing projects.

Art Saves
The ultimate message of this book is what is at the core of my heart ... which is that no matter how lost we feel, no matter how dark it gets, you can always find your way back through the creative process. Art saved me when I was a little girl and I know it saves countless others every single day.

Art Saves

Art Saves will officially hit bookstores July 4th.

You are welcome to pre-order it here on Amazon.

You are also welcome to pre-order a signed copy here on CRESCENDOh, where $5 of every book sold through CRESCENDOh will be donated to www.water.org. Read about my thoughts regarding water for the world here.

With deep sincerity and respect, I thank the incredible contributors for Art Saves: Kelly Rae, Lynn, Susannah, Robert, Karen, Rebecca, Michael, Sarah, Suzi, Stephanie, Susanna, Marie, Susan, Lisa, Jette, Melody, Christine, LK, and Drew. Each of these artists have tremendous stories to tell, and I am so grateful for all that they create, share, and give.
