you are always making up the future as you go…

“Take wrong turns. Talk to strangers. Open unmarked doors. And if you see a group of people in a field, go find out what they are doing. Do things without always knowing how they’ll turn out. You’re curious and smart and bored, and all you see is the choice between working hard and slacking off. There are so many adventures that you miss because you’re waiting to think of a plan. To find them, look for tiny interesting choices. And remember that you are always making up the future as you go.” – Randall Munroe

Art is a necessary part of life…

“Art is a necessary part of life, it is food for the soul. By creating, giving and receiving art, the depths of our spirit are revealed to ourselves and each other. Art is one of the primary methods of forming the cultural bonds of our human community, it links us with something greater than ourselves. Great art dissolves the boundaries between art, life, self, other and spirit.” – Matthew Purdon

The campaign for Jump for Joy Mural project and book of 1000 people jumping for joy around the world is going very well. I’ve had incredible support from the media and in pledges. After just one week am at 67% of my base goal! The base goal will cover costs to create the Jump for Joy mural and anything over the base goal will go towards making the book.

It’s exciting and humbling to know that people value the work I am creating and that others also feel JOY is worth spreading :)

Please take a moment to check out the campaign, and if you feel inspired to make a pledge i would be incredibly grateful: JUMP FOR JOY MURAL AND BOOK

The power and energy of the jumps was incredible… unfortunately I didn’t quite capture the jump – with the limited space, low lighting and only 3 shots to try and get it right… I want to share it anyway as the experience was so fun and this is such a wonderful group of people :) it was sure fun trying! :) The performance was beautiful – what in amazing group of JOYful people!

sensual pleasure of laughter…

“O laughter! Laughter of sensual pleasure, sensual pleasure of laughter; to laugh is to live profoundly.” – Milan Kundera

focusing on the positive rather than the negative…

“Happiness is not a destination, it is a state of mind. It’s focusing on the positive rather than the negative. It’s appreciating what you do have instead of sulking over what you don’t have. A rich man can be miserable and a poor man can be happy. Happiness is all about a person’s priorities, a person’s perspective about life.” – Nikki Doby

Jump for JOY + Murality Kickstarter has begun! @jumpforjoyphoto @kickstarter #jumpforjoyphoto

Jump for Joy Photo Project + Murality.org join forces!

I am excited to announce an exciting art project that I have been invited to be a part of… I will be creating a large scale Public Art Mural with a collage of enlarged jumping photos.

I am now raising the funds with a Kickstarter campaign which is LIVE as of today :)

I would be ever so grateful if you would consider making a pledge, and or spreading the word to anyone who may be inspired by my work. The last day to pledge is May, 31, 2014.

Your contribution will assist in creating this unique large scale Mural of Jump for Joy photos of people all around Vancouver.

I am aiming to make more than my goal amount of $5000. My aim is to cover materials/costs to create the mural and also enable me to compleate my Jump for Joy! Photo book of 1000 pictures of people jumping for joy around the world.
