In 2017, I won the Sullivan County Artist in the Community Decentralization Grant. My proposal outlined a workshop teaching young people how to engage their Quantum Creative Energy to create the best possible future.

In the workshop, I challenged the 5th – 8th graders at the Boys and Girls Club of Liberty and Monticello NY to step out of their comfort zone and engage their creative energy by writing a poem entitled The Value of Nature, celebrating the beautiful and bountiful land where we live; the trees, the water, the wildlife, the clean air.

I then set these poems to my nature photography, resulting in a set of stunning collaborative works.The Value of Nature

Then, on July 9th I held a multimedia performance at the Tusten Theater with my band, The Bliss Ensemble, featuring a slideshow of the resulting collaborations.

Five of these collaborative pieces are available for sale in the form of posters, and there is a book called The Value of Nature, containing all of the collaborations.  Half of the profits from the sale of these posters and books will go directly to support the Boys and Girls Club.

This project is symbolic of my belief in the incredible power of arts to transform, inspire, and educate.
