#1 What is your highlight Visual art experience from the last year?
"With everything on the art scene being so lively and alluring,
it is hard to choose a single highlight from the past 12 months. I would
have to say that I had a blast featuring the famous fashion connoisseur,
Zandra Rhodes, on ArtRocks!
Radio. Straight out of London, Zandra integrates bright colors,
funky textiles and fun textures. Known for working with the royal, the
rich and the radical, Zandra's collections and work is one-of-a-kind!"
#2 What is your vision of the future of the Visual arts for San Diego?
#2 "It is no wonder that San Diego is a melting pot for art and
culture. With its sandy beaches and amazing weather, it's easy to attract
people and artists from around the world. But if I could do anything
to enhance San Diego's wonderful art community, it would be to raise
more cultural awareness of the awesome artists and opportunities that
surround this city. My radio show, Art
Rocks!, supports and introduces some of the greatest and most talented
people. Whether it's someone who is an art fanatic or a person who just
wants to dip their feet in the pool of visual arts, my greatest hope
is to make this available to everyone."
