About the artist:
I’ve always lived a dual, city-country, life and that reflects in everything I do. I look to nature and where the organic intersects with human intervention, how it remains natural despite our best efforts. I wanted to decorate an acoustic guitar because that instrument is one of my oldest loves. I was raised by old hippies – my uncle John and later musician friends lurking in the basements of Kalamazoo, Michigan. I’m still being raised by old hippies – my friends associated with chapters of Folk Alliance.
I wanted peaceful, happy motifs on this Suzuki guitar, so I painted a sunflower growing up and overtaking the beautiful natural wood. There’s a hint of blue and tiny birds, like a reflection of the sky. I want the future owner of this guitar to feel joy emanating from it
