Loved the positive energy and intelligent curiosity of Maribel and her sister Maricela, who I met at Palm Springs High School. After doing their incredible jumps of joy, I discovered that they’re both athletes, not surprised with a stunning jump like this!
We had a quick chat before they had to get back to class. They asked about the project, what had inspired me to start it so I gave them a quick overview of how the project came to be. I appreciated their interest and wish we had more time to share ideas and thoughts about the impact sharing joy has had on my life.
I imagine great things for you Maribel, thank you for sharing your beautiful energy and jumps of joy!
Thank you to the Palm Springs Cultural Center inviting me to be your first Artist in residence and bringing the Jump for Joy Photo Project to the Coachella Valley.
