Cynthia  is the 11th installation of 13 from The Other-Side presents That Wall art project. Each installation is unique in its own way and features art on both sides, as well as their own song on a soundtrack that was created to make them all come alive.

Cynthia is a very friendly gal; she is the type of person who will help you read your map and find your way if you are lost. She is cheerful even when things are tough and a real goddess when life shines bright. Cynthia is handmade from polymer clay and is one of a kind. The book she is reading is crafted from a map of the West Coast of British Columbia. Her outfit is made out of an old vintage jacket I found at a garage sale (from the 60’s, I believe!) The other side of her piece is my interpretation of graffiti art which I created using spray paint, acrylic paint and collage.

Each installation is for sale and comes with its own soundtrack. In order to experience the full effect of the installation, please check out the music video below which will take you on a journey through the full show. You can also read the stellar review the show garnered for a deeper insight into the experience!!! Feel free to share and please, contact me for more info such as availability and pricing.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Admiration

My heart has been very sad for what has happened in our country this week, with so many people now homeless, fleeing for their lives and losing their dreams, their homes and possessions. During this indescribably large forest fire in Fort McMurray, Alberta, it’s been very hard to focus on anything else but getting our family members and friends to a safe place. It was important to let them know we were there for them and we started raising some funds for them to start their lives over. I have nothing but admiration for all the crews on site, having the strength to care for their children, their pets and themselves. I send my love and thoughts across the Canada to everyone affected by this tragic situation. xoxox Laura
