Special Treat -- TWEET, TWEET

Hi All,

I just had to put this on my blog. If you are having a case of the doldrums, this video will shake away the blues.



Geneviève Dubuisson on Art Slant

Hi Folks,

I'm on Art Slant, the #1 Contemporary Art Network, under my new name, Geneviève Dubuisson. I am so happy to let you know that I've turned a new leaf, moved to a new vibration in my life. Soon, you will be hearing about my newest interest, Art Activism, where I'm making a statement about MRSA, methicillin-resistant Staph Aureus, the "Superbug" that we hear more and more about in the daily news. As of September 12, 2009, MRSA has been found on public beaches in the Puget Sound area in Washington State. With the help of many of you donating hundreds of tapes, I found my voice through the voice of many. Now I'm using my embroidery skills to bring awareness to a multitude of social problems. Stay tuned for my new project, "Making the Invisible Visible".

Sacred Name -- Genevieve

Hi Folks,

Last Saturday morning, I went to Song and Spirit Center. During a sound journey/meditation, I received my sacred name, Genevieve. I researched the name and learned that I am in good company. Genevieve was born (419-422) in Paris, my birthplace. She worked with prisoners and after her prayers were said to divert Attila the Hun away from Paris, she was canonized in 500, two years before her death, as the Patron Sainte of Paris. Read more about her on Wikipedia,

Without further ado, I have decided to change my name to Genevieve.

Solvy Bowl

Hi Folks,
Here's a picture of my thread-lace bowls made with various recycled fabrics, yarns and threads.

This is a test to upload a photo to my blog.


"Breaking Out" mentioned in the Marin IJ

Hi Folks,

I'm happy to report that my wearable art, "Breaking Out", made with vinyl, velcro and eggshells was mentioned today in the Marin IJ Newspaper by the Unknown Museum's former curator, Mickey McGowan. A member of the art group I belong to, PleXus, , Roni Mentzer was mentioned for her "fetching" wedding dress made out of plastic SF Chronicle newspaper bags called "From the Doormat to the Threshold". Go to and read the article in it's entirety. In addition, two other members, Susan Doyle and Juline Beier have pieces in this juried show at the O'Hanlon Art Center through September 30, in Mill Valley.
