this is my newest leaf, well maybe not but at least it explains why I have to spend 10 minutes cleaning the board before I can throw any clay, darn cat anyway, good thing he is cute.

the leaf project

I have started a new art project and will be launching a kickstarter project tomorrow to help raise funds. Each year approximately 1,537 children die as the result of being abused by parents and/or caretakers.  My hope as with most of my art is to try to make sense out of chaos. Art for me offers the chance to short circuit the verbal/cognitive language that we often use to try to understand and make sense of our world a process that to often falls short. I have a blog http://fallenleavesproject.blogspot.com/ specifically dedicated to this project that I hope you will check out and that you will consider helping me fun my project and engage in the ongoing discussion about the role of art in making sense out of our world.
