I am Diane Farris, sometimes known as Dianekamikaze. I express myself through a variety of media. I do a radio show on WFMU - check here for archives: http://wfmu.org/playlists/DK or listen on Thursdays Noon-3pm on wfmu.org. The work you see here may be motivated by music, maybe not! I am a retired tattoo artist, and after decades of drawing other people's ideas, I thought I'd like to see what came out of me when left to my own devices.
...the name of this piece. Not new, but extremely relevant. Thoughts are on: what really makes a difference in life, focusing on my art and surrounding myself with warmth and support, and people everywhere having what they need. This IS what comes out of me, and truly is what is inside all the time. Looking at this piece after having it hang several places, my knee jerk, post-Sandy reaction is "It's A Tree Falling, Noooo!" Enough of that. Move forward; it is time to ground ourselves in whatever matters to us. Hopefully this event has helped those of us who need to see that, do so!
