VIDA: The Big Reveal!!

The Magic of Unfolding

I love watching cool things unfold. Experiencing a journey – and sharing it too – is like a treasure hunt of the highest order. I’m betting you feel this way too, which is why I’m continuing to bring you along on my journey with VIDA. Welcome to the next chapter! Not final, mind you… but the one where we actually get to see what we’re talking about here. 😉

Creating wearable art, helping others, contributing to the greater good across the globe all in one fell swoop is ON in my world! I’ve wondered for the longest time how to pull that off in a way that felt like aligned with my art, heart and soul. THIS project feels like a big, fat “BINGO!” in that department… philosophically, spiritually AND business-wise. I’m so stoked to finally show you what they’re going to look like!

Umaimah Mendhro… & Me

Umaimah Mendhro is principal and owner of VIDA. (And, ummmm… can you say A-MAZ-ING??? Or maybe we should just let TEDx Ajman, Dreamfly, TEDx Seatlle or just Dream:st do that talking?). She and I hit it off right from the get-go. And on this trip to San Francisco (where VIDA is based), we met in person for the first time. PLUS, in this video, I’m sharing my first glimpse of the samples she’s had created with my work!

It’s no secret that I love a good Big Reveal. As those go… this one was GREAT!

A New Eye is born…

This has all made me want to create a collection from photographs done specifically for VIDA, rather than adapt existing works. I definitely plan to do that in France this coming May/June. But I gotta tell you, it’s a completely different way to see. I’m so excited to see what my new eyes will see fit to create!

But for now… and to sign off… here are the photos you saw in the video.:D
