Introducing myself and my journal: A Beautiful Life

About Me:
I am a 68-year-old artist who is currently is painting images of the natural world seen through the microscope and filter of science. My intention is to reveal the beauty of nature that is usually invisible to us. I am particularly interested in the cross-pollination between art and science. I have been a feminist my entire life, starting with my involvement in the feminist movement in Rome, Italy, from 1968 to 1971, and the landmark public exhibition in Piazza Navona on Mothers' Day of 1971. I helped organize the Take Back the Night event in San Francisco in 1978 and selected the ancient Eyptian goddess of the Sky, Nut, for the event's logo, poster and T-shirt. I lived most of my life in San Francisco, California, benefiting from that city's unique culture of creativity, tolerance and progressive politics. Education has always had a high priority in my life and I have taught on and off throughout my life, through arts-in-the-schools programs, a Waldorf school, and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. Today I live in Ashland, Oregon, with my husband, and am a member of the Ashland Art Center. I paint and teach classes about patterns in nature. My artwork can be seen on my website

art, nature, making things with my hands, gardening

Thank you for welcoming me

Dear Usha-
thanks for your welcome message. I am enjoying reading the posts on Pulsewire and plan to become more active.
I have fond memories of my visit to Nepal in 1977, a "golden" era for many, I have been told, although for women and their social and economic conditions perhaps not so good.
Warm greetings from Oregon.

Happy new year, Art!

My name is Beatrice, one of the three speaking tour award winners of World Pulse in 2011.
I hereby introduce you to the new project I am working on here in Uganda; Rural Girl Child Mentor-ship Uganda. Pairing Uganda girls with mentors from across the globe. Please take time to read more about this project and also read and hear personal stories from each girl;
I hope this can help you connect with a girl and the mentors from around the world.

If you know any body who can join me in this mission, please share with them.

Hoping to hear from you.

I believe everybody has the potential to live a better life. Given the Opportunity, Education and Motivation ANYONE can become someone admirable. Nobody is a NOBODY, everybody is SOMEBODY.
