This was a series of weekly questions based on a little book I purchased. For 25 weeks, I answered questions from the book over Zoom, with call-in answers or just by myself in an effort to get people thinking about who we are and where we’re going. The videos all appear on my YouTube channel.

Postcards from the Edge
This project involved a set of interactive postcards that I mailed to different friends around the country. I pre-addressed and stamped each postcard and sent it in an envelope. The return postcards took various lengths of time to get back. The recipients filled out the postcards in various ways according to the instructions.
International PARK(ing) Day
PARK(ing) Day is an annual worldwide event where artists, designers and citizens transform metered parking spots into temporary public parks. I instigated the first celebration of PARK(ing) Day in St. Petersburg, FL.
I’m that weird neighbor that puts up goofy signs on my door or in the hallways of the apartment building. One was a mad-lib; one was a question, one asked participants to write a poem, and some were simple tear-off sheets.
It’s a great way to interact with your neighbors!
Those funny signs you see as you’re walking down the street? That’s me! (Or someone like me!)
I love to get the public interacting with my “art”.
I’m a yarn bomb instigator! One of my orchestrations was featured on the front page of the Rutland Herald in Rutland, Vermont. Who actually did the bombing? It’s a secret.
This is an ongoing project. It started with myself and a friend at the farmers market in 2015. For a while, it involved my sweetheart and I in our “FREE HUGS” t-shirts roaming around the city. And in the future, it might involve the hugs being “PRE-PAID” instead of FREE. Stay tuned for details!
What’s better than taking encouraging notes into a library and hiding them in the books? This is an activity I will repeat at certain intervals. I encourage you to do the same! Recruit your friends like I did! If you do, give a shout about it on our Facebook page.
Thrift Store Notes
This is similar to Library Notes except the notes are tucked into jeans at thrift stores. They say things like, “You’re beautiful just the way you are” and “You look fabulous!”
