My Word of the Year for 2014

I know that FIT is not a glamorous or trendy word.  However, it does describe the kind of year and direction I want to go in.  For my chosen path it's perfect.

I suppose that most people will think about being physically fit and it is surely that, but for me so much more.  I want to feel my life fits me.  The things that I do and the time that I take/spend truly fit me.

I love this quote, "The thought manifests the word, the word manifests the deed, the deed develops into habit and the habit hardens into character."  Buddha.

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, 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…
