New Work

It's been a long while since I last posted.

I have been growing a lot, in terms of learning who I am. I started Caspiana up again. That is Sarah Whitmire’s website of 22 free soul journaling prompts. After day 10 I was emotionally blocked and couldn’t move forward. I had to put it down! It took me about 8 months to get moving again.

Since then I've remembered a few extremely significant segments of my life that were once, "Black Holes", areas where there was nothing; no memories, no visions, no feelings. To my surprise those areas were completely unavailable to me. These segments should have been filled with lots of “normal” memories, “normal” visions and “normal” feelings; they should have been brimming full segments of a remembered childhood. But instead I couldn’t see or feel anything.

I’ve been doing Life Makeovers; (the book) 52 Practical and Inspiring Ways to Improve Your Life One Week at a Time by Cheryl Richardson, and finally something (still unknown to me) broke loose. I was finally capable of returning to Caspina. I thankfully and knowingly finished day 10 and beyond.

Here are some of those first pages:

Playing with inches and following a list.


I found this blog post in my drafts! The original date of the post was Oct. 20, 2010. I really don't know why I haven't published this post! I have totally enjoyed Caspiana and just love Sarah Whitmire, I guess I really did hit a block!

Siapo Desgin Greeting Cards

What I've been up to lately!  Greeting Cards!! I have created some greeting cards that are near and dear to my heart. 

They will be available at my brand new Esty shop called AliiTasiStudio, opening at the end of September 2016.  
My greeting cards are one of a kind. There are no two exactly alike. In this series they are hand made from recycled tea bags and stamped with my hand carved stamps using archival inks.Each tea bag is a piece of signed original art.
I was inspired to create these cards by my Samoan ancestors and from living with Siapo hanging on the wall of my bedroom as a child.They are reminiscent of traditional hand pounded Siapo, also known as Tapa, made from Mulberry Tree bark.There is a long history of Polynesian Tapa in Oceania.Siapo was/is used as an element of value, given at Births, Weddings, Funerals and important ceremonial gatherings involving High Talking Chiefs and Village Chiefs..I would love to include you in the tradition of giving Siapo as a valued gif…

Grace Hudson Museum

The gift shop at Grace Hudson Museum is now carrying my AliiTasiStudio greeting cards!!! Yay for me!!!

Wikipeida has this to say; The Grace Hudson Museum in Ukiah, California is adjacent to the Sun House where artist Grace Hudson and her husband resided until their deaths. The house and museum are owned and operated by the city of Ukiah.
Returning to California, Grace and John Hudson lived the rest of their days leading a modest bohemian lifestyle of collecting, traveling, field work, reading, entertaining, photography and painting based in The Sun House in Ukiah, a Craftsman-style California bungalow they designed and had built of redwood in 1911. The Hopi sun symbol was adopted by the Hudsons as their family symbol; the Sun House displays the emblem prominently over the door. John Hudson died there in 1936.
With no children of her own, Grace Hudson left The Sun House and its land to her nephew, Mark Carpenter. Carpenter preserved the house and its 30,000 collected objects fo…

To Be Organized!

My old and favorite blog, artstudio49.blogspot.com has evolved to contain my ART as a clearinghouse of sorts.  It’s what I think will keep me organized, and possibility even sane.  I have joined forces with several online artist/designer-selling platforms. 

These companies manufacture, ship, and pay the Artists/Designers an agreed upon stipend for the use of their digital files containing the artwork.

I won’t get rich or even famous but these platforms are a way to get my work out into the universe or even just the virtual universe.

First in line is Fine Art America, which I joined last year.  My art is in a state of flux and I’m giving birth to new and different kinds of art everyday.  Fine Art America is a great place to start keeping it all categorized, as you’ll see in my shop.  I have uploaded; Collage, Paintings, Photos and Digitally Altered Collage and Photos.  You can get to my shop Me at Fine Art America
Redbubble is similar to Fine Art America in that you can purchase Wall Art…
