ARTIST AS GARDENER | DESIGNER

GONE ARE THE DAYS WHEN ARTISTS WORKED UNDER THE DIRECT GENEROSITY OF PATRONS. EVEN THE DAYS OF GRANTS AND FELLOWSHIPS HAVE FALLEN TO THE WAYSIDE FOR MOST MAINSTREAM ARTISTS. SO IT IS NOT SURPRISING TO SEE CREATIVE INDIVIDUALS REACHING OUT TO EXPAND THEIR OPPORTUNITY FOR SUCCESS (AND SURVIVAL) THROUGH WHAT ARE NOW CALLED "MULTI-REVENUE STREAM RESOURCES". THIS MEANS MANY SIDE JOBS THAT ARE SOMEHOW COMPATIBLE WITH THE ARTIST CREATIVE SKILL SET.

FOR  ME THIS MEANS EXPLORING THE POSSIBILITY OF WORKING WITH OTHERS TO IMPROVE THE WORLD AROUND THEM THRU WHAT I CALL WABI-SABI DESIGN.. AS A LONGTIME FAN AND PRACTITIONER OF ZEN STYLE AND DESIGN THROUGH MY WORK WITH JAPANESE SCROLLS, JAPANESE GARDENS AND THE TEA CEREMONY AESTHETIC, AS WELL AS MY EXPERIENCE IN HOTEL/RESTAURANT AND GRAPHIC DESIGN, I AM WELL POSITIONED TO ADVISE, CONSULT AND IMPLEMENT CORRECTIONS AND ENHANCEMENTS TO GARDEN AND HOME SPACES.

PLEASE ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE MYSELF TO YOU, TIMO-NANDA DESIGN CONSULTANT.
