WORKSHOPS / CLASSES / EVENTS
everyday you wait is a day you won’t get back.
reveal yourself. what makes you different?
the world is full of people and corporations who claim to be authentic, creative, game-changing, innovative, inspiring, and paradigm-shifting. sounds great, but that’s not good enough for me. i want to be with/work with/collect the work of someone who shows fall-down, crazy stupid love for their work. i want to be surrounded by people who are alluring, beguiling, blazing, bursting, epic, frenzied, ravenous, and volcanic. i want passion to erupt.
LET YOURSELF GO PAINTING CLASS
have you ever let yourself go?
i have…and it feels fantastic.
art is not about making something pretty. it’s about letting go and seeing what surfaces.
wanna let go?
bring along a group of friends, it can be scary by yourself.
standard set up is 90 minute (or so)
you’ll paint on 16 x 20 or equal canvas – use my supplies, paints, brushes, super secret materials and more.
bring your own fuel whatever that may be.
dress like johnny depp, but try to smell like elizabeth taylor. i”ll provide the julia child aprons.
i did. still do.
not necessarily way high out of a plane.
i want to leap and feel my stomach drop and experience my knees wobbling like grandmothers jello, popping out of her copper colored molds. i have a desire to send notice to my exhilaration nerves that i’m still alive.
parachute is a one day workshop for makers.
you will leave with a pack full of…
strategies to prepare for the winds that will blow you back and forth.

i’ve got some.
somewhere. unless i need them.
i need jumper cables from time to time.
my battery runs low. i leave the lights on all night. i chill waiting for the next sporting event in the parking lot – a little too long.
i need them to jumpstart by brain. my arms. my hands. my feet.
i can’t be running 24-7 and start right up on command all the time!
my brain is tired. my frontal lobe is confused, perhaps jumbled or maybe just totally empty.
as a maker and creative energy junkie, i need jumper cables to take some juice from another source and surge it over to me. sometimes red bull just doesn’t cut it.
that what “jumper cables” is all about.
jumper cables is a one day jump start for your creative team.
a six hour cram sesh to stretch creative team members to remember why you started
i’m not a magician.
but i play one in the studio. i have several tricks up my sleeve. the difference between me and david copperfield? claudia shiffer won’t return my phone calls + i willingly share my secrets.
are you artcurious?
spend the day with me. bring a note book. dress to mess + i will impress.
i promise to share what i know. what works and what doesn’t when it comes to materials, supplies, techniques, how to and where to.
