Everyday Ways

Back from's a reminder of how we keep warm when it's real cold outside!

So, I consider myself a Culture Worker - an artist using creative practice to nurture and be useful to my community, my ancestors, and my planet.  I was approached by Colin and Shanai of Works Progress - to do a short video about my creative life (they'd been commissioned by the McKnight Foundation to profile several past fellowship recipients as part of their commemoration of 60 years of supporting the arts.  I wanted to show / highlight the ways that I treat of creativity as every day practice - and to honor my amazing creative, justice and peace, health and earth harmony-seeking community in Minnesota.

Much Love
