Sharon and I had the opportunity to collaborate, in a sense, when she submitted her work for consideration to be included in Liberated Muse Volume I: How I Freed My Soul
(Outskirts Press, 2009). She submitted her work on the very last day of the call for submissions. I had received a lot of work by then and thought I had selected what would be the cover. When her work came in, I was floored. Her piece "Believe" was the most perfect piece ever to grace the cover. I immediately decided it would be the cover before looking at any of the submissions sent to me that day.
Sharon and I have developed a healthy respect for each other and friendship based in artistry over the past two years and I was honored to be asked this past week to appear on her podcast AAV Artcast. She will be interviewing me tonight to talk about Liberated Muse and our upcoming events. Sharon also is the curator for our Liberated Muse Celebration of Freedom exhibit which will be from Sept. 11 to Dec. 1. Check her out at her online spaces HERE, HERE & HERE.
