Mythica Blog: What an artist leaves behind

This year will be my 10th year anniversary with the Denver Chalk Art Festival. For nine of those years I have been friends with Mark Cline, a fellow chalk artist. He’s the guy who was always there. He left behind three amazing daughters who have grown into amazing young women who appreciate the arts because […]

Mythica blog: Redheads, Minions & Cuteness on Crack!

A friend, Faith Young,  leads an amazing women’s group. One of their tenants is “how can I be of service today?” I told this to another friend and she told me that it sounded like the Rotary club… they also have four guiding principles about service to humanity. I also remembered that my mentor, Kent […]

Mythica News: When a Bodypainter becomes an “Artist”

“Why was Bodypainter at Artopia a Big Deal?” It may have gone unnoticed that one of the 25 artists at Artopia in Denver, Colorado this weekend was a bodypainter. I mean there were several artists who were painting mannequins also. So when one of the 3 white mannequins turned out to be a real person a […]

Mythica Post: Are You All Alone?

Recently I made a discovery that the reason it feels that I have been swimming against the current all by myself trying to figure out what’s wrong is because I am in a vast sea of people who are all around me thinking the same thing. Haven’t you felt it too? Some strange inertia holding […]

Mythica: 30 Day Bodypainting Challenge

An international art page on Facebook approached me about posting my artwork for 30 days. I looked at the other bodypainting works on their page and it is all stunning, top notch. The hair, makeup, and photography are pretty professional. Several of the artists are personal heroes and mentors of mine. It meant that I […]

Mythica: Bullies Hiding Behind Facebook

Recently I’ve been targeted by someone who has been reporting my images as abusing Facebook policy. There are many ways to report abusive images by Facebook but no clear or easy way to appeal the process when the images are not offensive, but artful. The hardest part was that the first of the images that […]

Mythica: New Beginnings

2012 was a hard year filled with stolen backpacks, broken hearts, homelessness, phone repossessed and a lot of hard work just to survive all that life threw at me. At the 11th hour there was some redemption, but all in all I am glad that 2012 is over. If you are reading this I’m glad […]

Mythica: Don’t Give up or in…. unless…

You are giving up BEING miserable. I recently lost a friend to suicide. Her name was Katrina. In fact she was the person my beloved and I first body painted together. Nine days after we painted her she killed herself. I felt so powerless. How could I not know? I wasn’t there for her. I […]

Mythica: Stolen Backpack, Found Miracle

I am writing this from a friend’s laptop. Last Thursday night my backpack was stolen out of another friend’s car after an event that I body painted at. I was surprisingly calm about the whole thing. Part of me thought that I had renter’s insurance. Turns out, I do not. The policy ran out last […]
