Community Engagement Art
The Manifesting Positive Energy Mobile is a globally collaborative art traveling installation. The Manifesting Positive Energy Mobile is made up of recycled cardboard circles artfully collaged by participants. The circles represent people’s dreams and visions for themselves and/or the world. People from all communities have contributed to decorating the circles. When exhibited, the circles are strung across the room in rows of circles. Each exhibition is hand-tailored to the space. People are invited to walk through it as a meditative experience.

The Benefits of Manifesting Positive Energy Mobile:
We have an epidemic of stress and frustration in our community right now. One way to relieve stress is to shift your mindset and to take action towards your goals or intentions.
The reality of climate change is actually also stressful. We are already in times of dangerous climate change, with a worse forecast if we continue with business as usual, pouring excess greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Behavioral change is an important part of tackling climate change and psychologists know that positive visualization can be a useful motivator of behavioral change. Visualization techniques provide beneficial ways of dealing with stress. Visualization not only activates positive anticipatory thinking – it short circuits negative anticipatory thinking. What matters is not so much whether you are optimistic or pessimistic – but how you visualize all the chapters to come. The added value of a positive mindset is a more relaxed person. Visualization is just one relaxation technique consistent with the practice of positive psychology. Visualization is one of the most powerful tools that is available for everyone to take action towards positive outcomes.

- Makes You More Grateful

We Are Here To Love
I painted 100 small works of abstract art in January 2018. The pieces are 4 x 6″ and 5×7″ – mixed media, acrylic, and oil. Here is the link to my Kickstarter Project. I believe it is important for all of us to love ourselves and each other a little more. Love enough so we continue to move in the direction of peace on earth.
Peace is possible – all we need to do is, LOVE.
There are many kinds of love – sister love, brother love,
romantic love, pet love, city love, friend love, nature love, spiritual love, human love.
This series reminds us that we must love one another –
especially those who we do not like. Loving others doesn’t always mean accepting bad behavior or liking actions by others. However, we must send out love vibes to the collective consciousness if we wish to create positive change in our world.
People everywhere are taking an active part in co-creating a thriving and sustainable place for all creatures on this planet to flourish by using their skills and talents with LOVE.
