Back by popular demand!

Looking for something fun and *different* to do on Oahu this weekend? Then welcome, and join us for an elegant evening of art, music and champagne! Get inspired to create a life where you feel healthy, happy and whole.

Join singer and songwriter Lucie Lynch and me for a European style Art Salon and Full Moon private concert, featuring my art and Lucie’s music! Mingle with us and our guests at my home and studio, with stunning views of Koko Head and lose yourself in the endless blue of the vast Pacific Ocean. With a glass of champagne in your hand and a variety of delicious pupus to choose from, peruse the art and enjoy an opportunity to really engage with it, up close. Feel free to ask questions and invite conversations. This will be an interactive experience, harkening back to the Gertrude Stein Art Salons in Paris in the early 1900’s.

At 7:00pm, we’ll gather for an exclusive private *Full Moon* concert with Lucie, as she weaves my art into her music, and makes the paintings come alive!

Space is limited, so if this intrigues you, get your tickets now! Only $35.00 for the entire experience, including food, drinks, music and art. $45. at the door

How was your summer? Mine has been busy, and full of creative adventures! It began in June with the Champagne Art Salon that Lucie Lynch & I co-created, with the theme of “The Voice” emerging. Lucie is a sublime international singer & songwriter that I feel so fortunate to not only to call my friend, but a colleague as well. You’ve just got to check her out on Facebook or at http://www.lucieslighthouse.com. You’re going to love her & her mesmerizing voice & song writing.

So the evening began with an Open Studio Art Salon, mingling & sharing my art with the beautiful group of people that joined us. The champagne was flowing, delicious food was partaken & we all enjoyed the hypnotic views of Koko Head & the endless blue of the Pacific Ocean. What a treat it was! At 7:00pm, we gathered in our living room for an incredible living room concert with Lucie. I unveiled my latest painting, “She Activates Her Voice” & shared my story of her creation with everyone. I explained how this painting literally manifested itself by my using a method known as “Intentional Creativity,” as taught to me by artist & mentor, Shiloh Sophia McCloud. This is a process in which one sets a particular INTENTION for the painting and then intuitively ALLOWS the painting to come into form. A give & take relationship develops between the painting & the artist. Lucie then began the concert by telling us her story about activating her own voice & continued to sing & tell us many more stories through her beautiful music.

I am so grateful to everyone who attended, supported & had fun with us! I am humbly honored to have shared the stage with Lucie. I would also like to thank Leo & Marika Hura of LeoVidPro for filming the event. You can view the synopsis of the evening on their YouTube channel. And a huge shout out to my wonderful husband for helping out in whatever was needed.

I definitely plan to do more events like this, so if this is the kind of thing you enjoy and you live or travel to Oahu, sign up to receive my newsletter.
