This is the title of my new series of work. The title has a couple different meanings. First, it is based on the specific type of paint I use. It is called ‘interference’ paint. “An Interference color is laminated mica pigment that “flip-flops” from a main color to a weak complimentary one. The phenomenon is similar to naturally occurring light interferences such as gas or oil on water, or a butterfly wing. The position of the viewer and the direction of the light source crea

I have been painting!!! I mean really painting. It feels great. I haven’t painted like this in about 3 years. I have done small stuff like my “Hiding in Plain Site” series and the Avatars and I have also done Mixed media work, but this is different. This is on canvas. I know, it shouldn’t make a difference but it does. I am so excited about this new direction. I am diverging from my usual color palette into something a bit more subdued. While I say that, I look at the paintin
The lovely Nina Camplin/Fuschia Nightfire filmed the whole 5+ hours of my first “Binge and Purge” performance/installation in Second Life. She then edited that down to 25 minutes and then sped it up and added this way cool music.

I was honored to be invited to display the avatars at Create:Fixate a one night art event in Downtown LA last night. It was a fun night of art, music, drinks and friends. I hung out by the Avatars and decided to take photos of the people taking photos with them. It was an interesting experience. I wanted to jump out of my skin every time someone grabbed their boobs!!! There were signs saying don’t touch… but alas people still did!! I almost feel violated!! Geesh!!! All in all
It kind of depends on whether you think the cup is half empty or half full as to what you think of my latest virtual performance/installation. Yes, I deleted my entire inventory in Second Life. Or what I was allowed to delete. Turns out I can’t delete my library or calling cards. Well I can delete calling cards, but they just show up again because I still have those friends on my list. AND I am NOT deleting my friends!!! This past Sunday, I finished the performative aspect
Please join me Sunday Oct 20th at 10am pst/slt as I finish the durational performance where I delete the entire contents of my Second Life Inventory. The performance/installation Binge and Purge was going to slowly be played out until the end of December. While I still have the space and will continue the installation on a conceptual level, I am going to finish the purge and delete my entire inventory on Sunday. One of the main reasons I am finishing tomorrow is because of t
I decided I had to get the ball rolling on clearing out inventory, making room for new work and getting money to pay for new mannequins, video software and canvases. Especially since I have to keep working on bigger and better creations!! From now until this Sunday, I am giving an extra 20% off discount on ALL my art. This goes for my Little Abstracts, big paintings and new collages. (Shipping is extra) My complete inventory is shown below. Send me an email if you find somet
I can’t stop and sit still for anything. Even when I try to relax, I always find something else to do. So today, when I was supposed to be working on my to do list, I updated my website and played with video in second life (machinima). Here is a sample of what I did… #machinima #virtualworld #art #youtube #bodyimage #newmedia #LEA #88arebetterthanone #secondlife #contemporary #metaverse #cyberspace #plussize #virtual #modern #artists #artist #video #arts #lindenlabs #popart #
“I have a confession: I’m a wannabe minimalist. And I use the term wannabe loosely because this minimalism thing? It’s a work in progress. I’m not a minimalist. But I deeply strive to live with less. I know. It sounds crazy. Less stuff? What type of person on earth wants less stuff? The natural tendency is to accumulate. It’s weird and unconventional to not want more. We’re taught to always strive for more. Buy the bigger home, acquire more friends and followers, log more hou
