I just finished 6 hours of Improv bar and more of the +HUGE Improv Theater 2015 Improvathon! This wonderful theater is more than just the best long form improv, non-profit, artist led, member & volunteer supported, educational and community supportive endeavor...  HUGE theater is my family, and my home away from home. I cannot express how much this place means to me.   
Right now HUGE is in the middle of their biggest fundraiser of the year! My kids and I will be performing at 11:30am in hopes of raising $350. If you are able, please donate $10 or whatever you can to our page. At this link https://www.givemn.org/fundraiser/bad-bunny-improv-messing-with-mom-improvathon-20155632a8896f643

Work
Occupation
Artist... writer... parent... one who struggles through life and tries not to complain to much...
Skills
The ability to be creative with whatever is at hand. To laugh when I want to cry and to keep on walking when my feet hurt.
Employment
  • Ozmorrhiza Arts Studio
    present
    I create improvisational art; drawings, sculptures, paintings, photographs and performance. I write poetry for those who wish to hear my thoughts. I write fiction for those who want to hear my stories. Occasionally I may make sounds that could be considered music, and move my body through space in a dance like way. The rest of the time, I am helping others to solve creative conundrums and placing myself in service to the community.

Story

Visual Artist working in photography, drawing, words, laughter and more....
Introduction
Artist working in improvisational art... photography, drawing, words and more....

..... ask me what I do... and it may change from day to day, but I am always seeking to share what is in my head or heart at any given moment. 

Bragging rights?.... well, I'm still alive......... .......................................................................Oh, and I once jumped off the tallest mountain in Europe with an irate Frenchwoman on my back...

Occupation?.... Yes, I'm definitely occupied! 
I make art... I tell stories... I create a world for my children to inhabit...  I laugh as much as possible. 

I'm involved in many rotating projects... I am working on my first novel... may the PTB have mercy on my literary soul....
