Senses That Sin is a multidisciplinary art installation which includes three art dolls, two rabbits, one live doll, one accordion player, and a live performance!

In the live performance, you will experience Indigo coming alive for the first time, as she grows more and more enchanted by her senses as they are each awakened one by one by Del Rivera. Will her fellow art dolls Lilac Rose and Ms. Boutika watch in amazement as they hope that their time shall also come when they will be woken up!?! To watch the live performance please click on the video, and on the link to the page on my website to learn more about the performers Namchi Bazar and Del Riviera.

I took my inspiration for this exotic/erotic experience from flowers and their lush surroundings and their ability to tickle our senses when we allow ourselves to fully enjoy their offerings.

In the next few blog posts, I will be introducing you to each doll in the installation and share my process in their creation, but for now enjoy the performance!!! xoxo

Goals + Adventures for 2017

Everyone is talking about resolutions this time of year. Personally, I like to take the month of January to put some goals into action and prepare for new adventures on my horizon instead. I find that taking this kind of action in my life doesn’t bring on as much stress as the word “resolution” does – because we all know that life brings enough of that all on its own.

So here are some of my goals: Take more time to enjoy life to the fullest; continue to work towards being the strongest, healthiest and most energetic person I can be (which includes getting a handle on my smoking habit, and No! I did not say quit!); learn some new art techniques, and put as many smiles on as many faces around the world as possible through my art and this blog.

Now for the adventures part: I have a new art installation in the making called “Sense that Sin”; I have started a new venture called BalducciArt which is my newfound passion of creating in 3D through textile art – you will find a new page on my website just for them and will hear more about them in one of my posts… And as many of you might know, I have taken a position of co-producer with Expose Yourself (an art exhibition in Powell River) which is starting to shape up as a promising adventure you won’t want to miss! Stay tuned to get all the details as I will be sharing them as they unfold (or check out our website to learn how to SUBmit at https://eyexhibition.com).

On a more personal level, I am planning adventures at sea by spending as much time as possible exploring the water via boat and paddle board; I am determined to attend as many workshops as possible to keep exploring the infinite possibilities of art, and to take a trip somewhere with my sweetheart (in a plane) to deepen our common love of taking adventures together… and while I am at it, I will take this opportunity to share my philosophy for 2017: “It takes approximately 165 muscles to frown and only 6 to smile.” I know how I will choose to share my energy; do you?
